PhD Cognitive Science Open Day 2018

Doctoral Course in Cognitive Science

7 June 2018
Versione stampabile

Location: Conference Room, Palazzo Fedrigotti - Corso Bettini 31, Rovereto

If you are thinking to apply for a PhD, the Open Day is an excellent opportunity to know more about the course program and the research opportunities within the PhD in Cognitive Sciences (former Psychological sciences and education) at the University of Trento, to meet current students and faculty members and to informally discuss your research interests with them.
The Doctoral Course in Cognitive Science is part of the Department of Psychology and Cognitive Science and is promoted in collaboration with Foundation Bruno Kessler (FBK).

The PhD Open Day includes:

  •  Short talks and poster presentations by current PhD students
  •  Meetings with our current students and PIs of the research groups
  •  Opportunities to learn more about the lines of research within the PhD program
  •  Information about funding, entry requirements and career perspectives of the PhD
  •  A special event on “HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY APPLY TO THE DOCTORAL COURSE”, prospective applicants can get directly in contact with potential supervisors, evaluate the fit between their research interests and the course opportunities, receive tips and advice on how to get through the application and selection process in order to make one’s own application successful.
