The University of Padua will organize a new in person edition of the MSCA MaRaThoN@University of Padua – Master your Research and Training Needs from 22 to 24 May, 2023.

This intensive training programme, which has reached its seventh edition, is addressed to top researchers, willing to submit a Horizon Europe Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship with the University of Padua as their Host Institution.

Interactive classes will focus on how to write a successful proposal for the next Postdoctoral Fellowships (PF) call.

The University of Padua offers a unique opportunity for researchers to work with highly qualified research groups across a broad interdisciplinary network of scientific areas. Moreover, hosting an increasing number of Postdoctoral Fellowships, it allows promising and motivated scientists to join a well-established and lively community of Marie Curie fellows.
