Title Doctoral College „Imaging the Mind“ Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Bundesministerium für Bildung, Wissenschaft und Forschung Media type Web Country Austria Date 25/06/20 Description In the Doctoral College (DC) „Imaging the Mind“, which is funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF (W1233-G17), 40 young scientists have been or are being educated in the cognitive neurosciences since 2015. The Doctoral Collegue is headed by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Manuel Schabus and education within the DC lasts three years (four years in case a student spends at least six months abroad). About two thirds of all students take advantage of such a study abroad period at a renown research institution (e.g. at MPI Leipzig, University of California/USA, Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, London) for their further specialisation and internationalisation.
During this time students have to earn 30 ECTS in the curriculum. The curriculum has been developed specifically for the College aiming at educating doctoral students with the necessary professional depth, but also with the breadth that is adequate for an interdisciplinary research field as the cognitive neurosciences. In addition to professional competence the curriculum also focusses on cross-interdisciplinary competences such as analytical thinking, communicative competence, intercultural competence and competence in teaching. Besides passing on professional competence from advisors to students (i.e. the faculty), students are encouraged to also actively participate in ideas which help to refine the curriculum to their individual needs.
