MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships 2021

Post by jonask6 » Wed Apr 06, 2022 6:29 pm

Hi folks,

I was awarded with a postdoctoral fellowship in the 2021 call in Spain. After all, I found out that the salary suffers a huge deduction and I would get about 2800 euros, which compared to the initial value, is quite less, I find. Since I got selected to another funding as well, way better, I'll decline the position.
Is the fellowship somehow transfarable to another candidate chosen by the host instituition? I'm feeling really sorry about them, because, obviously, they also loose money if I give up. But considering the salary, it is just not worth it when compared to the other one.

Thanks

It goes to the next project on the reserve list and is not transferable to the other institution.
How much is the salary of the other postdoc? Is it also in Spain?

It's a program from DAAD called Prime: 1 year abroad (not in Spain) + half year back in Germany.
The salary itself is about the same, but I get almost twice the salary because they pay an expatriation allowance for the one year abroad.
