Application deadline: (7 May 2024) POSTPONED May, 21th 2024

Candidates will be pre-selected based on their expression of interest, CV and motivation.

There are 3 main requirements of eligibility:

  1. Applicants must have a PhD and no more than 8 years of full time research experience*
  2. Applicants can be of any nationality but must not have lived or worked in Italy for more than 12 months during the 3 years up to the closing date of the call 11 September 2024 (mobility rule)
  3. The applicants must choose the Politecnico di Milano as their Host Institution

In order to apply applicants must choose one of the "Supervisors project proposals" and send the following forms as pdf files to: mscamasterclass(at) 

All forms are compulsory.

The Politecnico di Milano team will verify candidates eligibility and send the applications to Supervisors taking in consideration the choice expressed by candidates in their application forms.

Supervisors will select one candidate per each “Supervisor project proposal”.

The selected candidates will be contacted by Politecnico di Milano team and will be invited to attend the MSCA MASTER CLASS.

Please contact mscamasterclass(at) for any questions on the funding scheme and the MSCA program.

The researcher must be, at the date of the PF call deadline (11.09.2024) in possession of a doctoral degree. At the call deadline, supported researchers must have a maximum of 8 years full-time equivalent experience in research, measured from the date that the researcher was in a possession of a doctoral degree. Years of experience outside research and career breaks (e.g. due to parental leave), will not be taken into account.
