Studentships in Cognitive Science at Central European University, Budapest, Hongrie
PhD studentships are available for the doctoral program in Cognitive Science at Central European University (CEU).
The Department of Cognitive Science at CEU invites applications for doctoral student positions starting in September 2013. This is a research-based training program in human cognition with social cognition and learning as core themes. Research topics include cooperation, communication, social learning, cultural transmission, embodied cognition, joint action, cognitive development, strategic decision-making, problem solving, visual cognition, sensory and statistical learning, visual psychophysics, computational neuroscience, and social cognitive neuroscience. Students will follow courses in cognitive psychology, philosophy of mind, cognitive anthropology, computational cognition and linguistics, and will receive practical research training in the laboratories of the members of this new department. Faculty includes
(cognitive development, cognitive neuroscience)
(visual perception and cognition, biological and statistical learning)
(infant cognition, developmental psychopathology)

(development of social cognition, theory of mind, mental representations)
(computational neuroscience, learning and memory)
(social cognition, social cognitive neuroscience)
(culture and cognition, communication and language, evolution)
(theories of language, linguistic diversity)
Applicants are expected to hold an internationally recognized Master’s or comparable degree in the standard disciplines that constitute cognitive science. A comparable degree in other Social Sciences, Humanities, or other disciplines will also be considered in case of an excellent academic record. We will consider the applications of exceptional students who only hold a Bachelor degree, provided it is in a discipline closely associated to cognitive science.
