Germany: PhD Programme in Cognitive Science

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

The core objective of the Cognitive Science PhD Programme is to enable excellent students
to carry out independent research in promising and highly active areas of Cognitive Science. The programme aims at optimal synergy between the dissertation projects and current research at the Osnabrück Institute of Cognitive Science.

Master’s degree (or equivalent) in Cognitive Science or a sub-discipline is required. This must include at least basic qualifications in at least two of the following disciplines: artificial intelligence, biology, computer science, (computational) linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy, or psychology. (For details see the admission regulations .)

We recommend that you do not send a worked out dissertation proposal with your initial application but only a short description of one or two topics you are interested in. Subsequently we will put you in contact with one of the principal investigators of the programme who will develop a full dissertation proposal with you interactively.

Deadline for application for start in October 2009 is the 31. May 2009. Late applications may be accepted if there are still open places in the programme.

Upon application PhD students
can be provided with a three years scholarship of normally 1500 € per month (plus extras). After the first year there is an assessment of the progress of the dissertation project. The continuation of the scholarship in the second and third year depends on the results of the assessment.
There are no study fees for PhD students but only an administration fee of appr. 160 € per semester. Students have to provide proof of health insurance upon registration.
