I have been granted a Marie Curie fellowship recently, and as some of you might know, one of the requirements is a PhD or 4 years of equivalent research experience (This question is related to that). Now, the contract issued from the host institution and the paperwork from the funding administrator set my role as Post-Doctoral Researcher.
Given that I don't have a PhD and applied based on the research experience item, I don't feel it is correct to have that title. Actually, I think this could be misleading and don't know how could this impact my career/reputation.
Should I ask to change this title? Does it matter in the end? or as long as I disclose I am "PostDoc researcher" because it was the title given for the role?
