Research Training Group (RTG) 2386 “Extrospection. External access to higher cognitive processes”


Doctoral candidates

Full doctoral members of the RTG 2386 will be provided with salaried positions for three years each. Positions for three-year periods will be advertised in 2018, 2019, and 2020.

We will also accept associated doctoral researchers. Associated doctoral researchers will bring their own funding to the RTG. They normally apply with the same deadlines as the other, yet unfunded candidates.

Fast-track students (Master's program)

The one-year fast-track phase will be financed by scholarships of €800/month. There are two fast-tracks scholarships available in both 2018 and 2019.

To be eligible for the fast-track toption, students will have to be accepted into the Master's program "Mind and Brain" first. The best students may then apply for the fast-track option of the RTG and study a special program for one year. After positive evaluation, they will become eligible for a three-year salaried doctoral position in one of the RTG's working groups.
