Yes, a Principal Investigator, engaged in the US or in a third country, can apply for an ERC Advanced grant (AdG) 2017, as long as (s)he will be engaged and hosted by a Host Institution based in an EU Member State or an Associated Country for the whole duration of the grant (see the ERC Work Programme 2017: Eligible Principal Investigator and Eligible Host Institution).
Principal Investigators funded through the ERC Advanced Grants have to spend a minimum of 50% of their total working time in an EU Member State or Associated Country and a minimum of 30% of their total working time on the ERC project. (see the ERC Work Programme 2017: Advanced Grant Profile).
