Call for applications to the PhD program at the University of Milano-Bicocca

We invite applications for two PhD positions with expertise in psychology, linguistics, and cognitive neurosciences at the University of Milano-Bicocca (UniMiB).

Both scholarships are funded by the European Research Council Synergy project Leibnizdream (Principal Investigator: Prof. Maria Teresa Guasti). The projects will be dealing with experimental linguistics within the generative framework. Possible topics (not exhaustive list) are: expression of causality and agency, verbs of movement, connectives (and, or, if then), quantifiers (all, none, some), the expression of negation, antonyms, comparison, gradable adjectives, syntactic dependencies (questions, relative clauses and logophoricity). Oral or sign languages, preferably with a cross-linguistic dimension, will be considered. Doctoral education will provide competence in statistics and experimental methods, among other things. The PhD students will be part of the larger research team, based at UniMiB, Humboldt University (HU), Berlin and Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS), Berlin.

The selection for admission to the 39th cycle doctoral programs is divided into two separate sessions.

  • Session I: open from March 21, 2023 to April 19, 2023 at 12:00 noon;
  • Session II: open from June 30, 2023 to July 24, 2023 at 12:00 noon.
