Research grant for interdisciplinary training in neuroscience and related fields at foreign universities or centres 2022
Deadline for submission of applications: May 1, 2022 at 23:59 hours
The International Center for Neuroscience and Ethics (CINET), created by the Tatiana Pérez de Guzmán el Bueno Foundation, announces a call for scholarships to carry out research residencies at international institutions of the highest academic prestige. The scholarships are for research doctors who wish to enhance their interdisciplinary training in neuroscience and other fields of knowledge (human biology, bioethics, psychology, philosophy, physics or history, for example). Theoretical or empirical projects that propose a true dialogue between two or more of these disciplines will be considered, with the aim of improving understanding of the brain, overcoming monodisciplinary paradigms, proposing original answers to the mind-brain problem, discussing and anticipating the main ethical challenges of neuroscience, or dealing with specific topics frequently found in interdisciplinary forums, such as consciousness, subjectivity or free will.
o The scholarship will be awarded to a natural person with a doctorate degree, regardless of the date it was completed. Interdisciplinary profiles will be especially valued, but applicants with training in only one discipline (for example, neuroscience or philosophy) and who wish to undertake a residency to go deeper
into a complementary field of knowledge (philosophy or neuroscience, in this case) will also be considered.
o The call is open to people of any age and nationality who, for the duration of the scholarship, propose to join:
- a Spanish institution, if they have been residents abroad for the last two years or more;
- or an institution from another country in the world, in the case of applicants residing in Spain when they apply for the scholarship.
o The term of the scholarship is 12 months.
