Who we are
We explore the social and biological aspects of human cognition and behavior: how learning, processing and sharing information takes place and how the interplay between the human mind and sociocultural practices affects people’s actions. Students, together with faculty, carry out interdisciplinary research right from the start, drawing on psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, mathematical modeling, linguistics and the social sciences. Our department runs several research projects funded by the European Research Council in state-of-the-art research facilities with technology for infant studies, eye and motion tracking, music, EEG and NIRS. Our vibrant, multicultural community also hosts weekly colloquium talks as well as regular conferences and workshops to exchange ideas and network with fellow researchers.
What we offer
PhD in Cognitive Science / This research-intensive, multidisciplinary program provides specialized knowledge in the fields of social cognition, cognitive development as well as formal and biological models of perception and learning. You will receive regular supervision and practical research training in our labs, from experimental design to data analysis. You will also have the opportunity to join research groups and work closely together with faculty members.
