Job description

The Tatiana Pérez de Guzmán el Bueno Foundation, through its International Centre for Neuroscience and Ethics (CINET), announces this call for a grant for a research stay at a public or private international institution (or, in the case of applicants who are nationals of other Member States of the European Union, a Spanish institution) of maximum academic prestige. It is aimed at researchers with a PhD who want to enhance their interdisciplinary training in neuroscience and other fields of study (e.g., human biology, bioethics, psycholo- gy, philosophy, physics or history). Theoretical or empirical projects that propose a true dialogue between two or more of these disciplines will be considered, with the aim of improving the understanding of the brain, overcoming monodisciplinary paradigms, propo- sing original answers to the mind-brain problem, discussing and anticipating the main ethi- cal challenges of neuroscience, and dealing with specific issues generally present in inter- disciplinary forums, such as consciousness, subjectivity and free will.

Profile of applicants
  • The grant will be awarded to natural persons who have obtained a doctorate, regardless of the date it was obtained. Interdisciplinary profiles will be especially valued, although applicants who, having trained only in one discipline (for example, neuroscience or philoso- phy), want to carry out a research stay to deepen their understanding of a complementary field of knowledge (philosophy or neuroscience, in this case).
  • The call is open to people of any age who are nationals a Member State of the European Union and who propose to join a Spanish institution (in the case of non-Spanish European applicants) or an institution of another country in the world (in the case of Spanish appli- cants).
  • The applicant must have been admitted, or must have a firm offer to be admitted, to a university or research centre for the requested period.

The grant has a duration of twelve (12) months.
