Marie Curie research grant funded posts are determined in yearly tranches (year of call) and include additional funding for individuals with dependant family commitments.

The grant is paid to the University in Euros and covers the whole employment costs (employer and employee costs). The employer costs include statutory National Insurance contributions and Employer pension contributions. The pay to the researcher is net of those employer deductions, is paid in sterling, the grant level determined in the year of call, and whether the individual has family dependents or not.

These are reviewed annually and new pay levels determined for further year of call research grants.
