Anyone with a PhD (or about to submit soon) outside the UK who wants to come and carry out research with me, please do take a look at the Marie Curie Individual Fellowships. 

 The goal of Individual Fellowships is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition at multi- or interdisciplinary level through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility.

Individual Fellowships provide opportunities to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research in a European context (EU Member States and Associated Countries) or outside Europe. The scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers from outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or helps to restart the careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.

The grant provides an allowance to cover your living, travel and family costs. The grant is awarded to your host organisation, usually a university, research centre or a company in Europe. The research costs and overheads of the host organisation(s) are also supported.

European Fellowships last from one to two years, Global Fellowships from two to three years.

I would be interested in working with people who would like to do research on subjective insecurities and their outcomes, or work autonomy/flexibility and their outcomes using both quantitative and qualitative data in a cross-national comparative perspective.

The deadline for proposals is on the 10th of September, thus if you are interested please contact me by early August.
