UiT supervisors identify potential postdoc candidates based on applications received through EURAXESS. UiT supervisor sends the postdoc candidate's CV for evaluation to the organisers to ensure fit for MSCA-PF scheme.

Supervisors and favorably evaluated candidates are invited to the Arctic MSCA symposium.

The supervisor and candidate meet (virtually) to discuss a project plan for the MSCA-PF application. It should be mentioned that the preliminary project plan proposed by the candidate in the EURAXESS ad may change as a result of these discussions.
