PhD Program in Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy of Mind (Milán)

IUSS Pavia / San Raffaele University Milan, Italy
http://www.iusspavia.it/bando2 (Italian)
http://www.iusspavia.it/call-for-applications2 (English)

A call for *3 three-year fully funded PhD positions* is available for the PhD Program in *Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy of Mind* promoted by a consortium between the University School for Advanced Studies IUSS Pavia and Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan, and directed by Prof. Valentina Bambini.

*3 positions* are available in the following areas:
(a) Theoretical syntax and neurolinguistics;
(b) Cognitive and neurocognitive science;
(c) Philosophy.Research fields in the “Theoretical syntax and neurolinguistics” area:
– theoretical syntax
– syntax-semantics interface
– computational linguistics and processing complexity
– neurosyntax
– experimental pragmatics and neuropragmatics
– linguistic-communicative impairment

Detailed research fields are available here: http://www.iusspavia.it/research-fields2

The PhD program aims at training qualified scholars in both theoretical reflection and experimental study. Research projects will be promoted both in traditional areas which evolve through connections with cognitive sciences (syntax, computational linguistics, experimental pragmatics, philosophy of mind and of cognitive science, epistemology, philosophy of mathematics, logic and language, ethical and social issues concerning studies on human cognition) and in new and emerging domains (machine learning, neurosyntax, neuropragmatics, social cognitive neuroscience, neuroeconomics, neuroethics). Young scholars will be trained both by consolidating and strengthening their competences in their original areas of study, and by offering them the required theoretical and experimental tools in the relevant subjects of cognitive sciences and neurosciences, linguistics, and philosophy. The general aim is to favor a multidisciplinary approach which will allow students to foster original and innovative research in their specific field.

Studentships amount to approx. 15.300€/year; monthly stipend is increased by 50% during study exchanges abroad, with additional mobility and research-related budget available from 2nd year.

The PhD program promotes mobility and internationalization, and additional inward and outward mobility funding can be made available via research projects at NEtS Center (http://www.iusspavia.it/nets).
