PhD Program in Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy of Mind
IUSS Pavia / San Raffaele University Milan, Italy (Italian) (English)

A call for *5 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 School for Advanced Studies IUSS Pavia and Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan.

*3 positions* are available in the following areas:
(a) Theoretical syntax and neurolinguistics;
(b) Cognitive and neurocognitive science;
(c) Philosophy.

Detailed research fields are available here

*2 positions* will additionally be reserved for projects in the epistemology of mathematics and logic.

Research fields for the Epistemology and Philosophy of Mathematics and Logic (eMath) project covering 2 positions can be found at:

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. 15.000€/year; monthly stipend is increased by 50% during study exchanges abroad. The PhD program promotes mobility and internationalization, and additional inward and outward mobility funding can be made available via research projects at NEtS Center (

The PhD program issues a final joint certificate between San Raffaele Milan and IUSS Pavia.
