As Marie Curie Fellows, suitably qualified and experienced researchers will receive a fixed salary/living allowance, plus mobility, travel or career exploration allowances according to the Marie Curie Framework 7 requirements for Early Stage Researchers. Individual allowances may vary according to personal factors (such as family status and place of origin) and are calculated in Euros. There are strict eligibility and residency requirements that must be met.
Each researcher will be appointed on a full-time, fixed-term contract at the University of Leeds for a period of three years, which may include a six-month internship at an associated partner organisation in the DREAM Network. Availability to travel (including internationally), for the purposes of the research and training activities, is a requirement for these posts.
