Brain-Body-Environment at Indiana University

Graduate Traineeships at Indiana University

The Cognitive Science Program at Indiana University invites applications from outstanding students for its NSF-funded graduate training program in the dynamics of brain-body-environment systems in behavior and cognition.

The goal of the program is to train doctoral students to think across traditional levels of analysis in the cognitive, behavioral and brain sciences. In order to accomplish this goal, we have developed new courses in situated, embodied and dynamical cognitive science, a professional development seminar, summer research internships, an annual research showcase and a colloquium series offering extended opportunities for trainees to interact with visiting speakers.

Benefits for students entering this program include a $30,000 annual stipend, tuition, and coverage of additional fees and health insurance.

Our interdisciplinary training group includes cognitive science faculty from the Departments of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Physics, and History & Philosophy of Science, as well as from the School of Informatics and Computing. In addition, we have strong partnerships with top researchers in the fields of dynamical, embodied and situated approaches to behavior and cognition, both nationally and internationally.

Applications are due December 31.  Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible for funding through this training program. For more information, contact Dr. Randall Beer at or visit

Our program promotes and values a diverse scientific community.
