Deadline for applications: August 26, 2022

44 scholarships offered for admission to the National PhD programme in “THEORETICAL AND APPLIED NEUROSCIENCE”, 38th cycle . Academic Year 2022-2023, with headquarters at the School of Advanced Studies - International Doctoral School of the University of Camerino.

The program involves 24 Universities and Research Institutions that host PhD students in various domains of Neuroscience.

National PhD Programme in “Theoretical and Applied Neuroscience” usually lasts three years, and aims to contribute to the training of future generations in the neuroscience sector. By putting the best scientific and cultural resources of various universities and research centres into a system, we intend to promote an interdisciplinary and intersectoral approach to the study of neuroscience. National PhD Programme in “Theoretical and Applied Neuroscience” aims to provide PhD students with the scientific knowledge and methodologies necessary for the integrated study of neuroscience in areas ranging from the investigation of the mind-body-brain relationship to molecular neurobiology and cellular, computational, cognitive, preclinical, clinical, diagnostic, rehabilitative neuroscience up to the study of neurorobotic systems. PhD students will find themselves inserted in scientifically stimulating environments where, in addition to curricular teaching and research, they will deepen aspects relating to transversal training and the acquisition of “soft skills”.

Applications accepted from both citizens of the European Union and non-citizens, based on qualifications and examinations.
