Applications are open for the 2017 Summer Seminars in Neuroscience and Philosophy

Calling all curious neuroscientists and philosophers!

Collaborate in the summer seminars for neuroscience and philosophy, a three year program sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation and Duke University. Our goal is to advance knowledge at the intersection of these fields. Together we can apply cutting-edge scientific research to the big questions on free will, morality, human nature, perception, memory, knowledge, consciousness, and more… 

This funded two week seminar experience produces valuable research and lasting relationships. Philosophers will learn new developments in neuroscience, while neuroscientists will study contemporary philosophy. You’ll form interdisciplinary teams and design your own experiments to conduct original research. The most promising projects will receive funding for the next year.

The program is open to graduate students, post-docs, Assistant Professors, and Associate Professors.

Application requirements:

  • CV
  • Statement of purpose
  • Short description of proposed project
  • Two letters of recommendation (for graduate students and post-docs)

Materials are due by December 15, 2016.
