A new, one-year Master in Brain and Cognition will begin its activities in the Academic Year 2014-15 in Barcelona, Spain, organized by the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (http://www.upf.edu/mbc/).
The core of the master’s programme is composed of the research groups at UPF’s Center for Brain and Cognition (http://cbc.upf.edu). These groups are directed by renowned scientists in areas such as computational neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistics, vision, multisensory perception, human development and comparative cognition. Students will be exposed to the ongoing research projects at the Center for Brain and Cognition and will be integrated in one of its main research lines, where they will conduct original research for their final project.
The master will be of interest to psychologists, philosophers, MDs, biologists, linguists, mathematicians or physicists seeking to pursue a career investigating the fascinating question of how the relationship between the mind and the brain enables cognitive functions.
Graduates will be well positioned to enter a PhD programme in Cognitive, Computational or Systems Neuroscience or a related field and to join other Spanish or international research teams (including UPF’s own).
This master offers one registration fee grant worth 2,000 € for the 2014-2015 academic year. The CBC offers partial tuition fee grants for a selected group of students based on merit. The number and exact amount of these grants is contingent upon available funds. Other scholarships may be available through UPF and the Catalan government.
