Postdoctoral Fellowships in Cognitive Neuroscience – BrainsCAN at Western University

Western University, home to a large cluster of world-renowned neuroscience researchers, is looking to bring the world’s most promising young cognitive neuroscientists to an outstanding research environment with unparalleled infrastructure. BrainsCAN is a 7-year, $66 million initiative funded by the Government of Canada, that is enabling researchers at the University, along with its national and international academic and commercial partners, to understand and significantly reduce the impact of cognitive disorders across the lifespan.

BrainsCAN is committed to improving representation of marginalized groups in neuroscience through the implementation of best practices of equity and inclusion. We are inviting applications from outstanding neuroscientists who identify with an underrepresented group (including Black, Indigenous, LGBTQ2S+, people with disabilities, and women) for 10 available postdoctoral positions. Applicants will have the opportunity to work with our talented cognitive neuroscientists, and should contact potential advisors based on their research interests before submitting their application.

The Postdoctoral Fellow program offers highly competitive compensation packages with independent research allowances, a brand-new state-of-the-art facility, and opportunities to work with highly esteemed researchers across multiple disciplines. Postdoctoral Fellows will have access to BrainsCAN-supported core facilities for neuroimaging; for studying human cognition, behaviour and sensorimotor control; for development and use of computational methods; and for establishing and exploring rodent and nonhuman primate models of cognition and behaviour. Skilled staff within these cores support state-of-the-art technical equipment including research-only MRI systems (3T, 7T, and 9.4T), laboratories for cognitive, behavioural, and electrophysiological testing in humans and animal models, advanced molecular techniques, a sleep laboratory, and access to a variety of neurological patient populations in affiliated teaching hospitals.

Already ranked amongst the best in the world in cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging, Western researchers employ cognitive, computational, clinical, and translational approaches to understand and intervene in brain function.

IBRO US-Canada Regional Fellowships

The US-Canada Regional Committee of IBRO (International Brain Research Organization) is pleased to announce the launch of our 2019 fellowships program that will cover the cost for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows training in neuroscience in Canada to attend advanced neuroscience courses. Preference will be given to trainees belonging to minority groups (First Nations and other Indigenous communities in Canada, visible minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and other minorities) as well as those in non-U15 Universities (http://u15.ca/). Fellowships will be awarded to support trainees to take neuroscience or related courses at the Marine Biological Laboratories (MBL) at Woods Hole, MA, and at Cold Spring Harbor Labs (CSHL; see links below) in 2019. Both laboratories offer a variety of excellent courses, and in addition are outstanding venues for trainees to network with leaders in the field. They also provide collaboration and mentoring opportunities that will be invaluable for future career development.

We are looking for talented trainees who have a keen desire to pursue careers in research. The aim of this program is to increase diversity in neuroscience in Canada, by providing such trainees with access to cutting-edge research approaches in contemporary neuroscience.

Interested trainees should submit applications directly to the courses of interest (see below for list of eligible courses). Evaluation of applications and offers of admission to courses are made by the course leaders. Accepted candidates with the backgrounds mentioned above will be automatically considered for an IBRO fellowship. The IBRO fellowship will cover the cost of tuition, room and board for 4 Canadian students (2 at MBL and 2 at CSHL). Fellowships are worth up to $11,000 per trainee at MBL and up to $8000 per trainee at CSHL depending on the courses taken.

Eligible MBL courses: Neural Systems and Behavior, Neurobiology: Mechanisms & Advanced Approaches, Methods in Computational Neuroscience, Biology of the Inner Ear: Experimental and Analytical Approaches, Brains, Minds and Mechanisms, Physiology: Modern Cell Biology Using Microscopic, Biochemical and Computational Approaches,  and Frontiers in Stem Cells and Regeneration.

Eligible CSHL courses: Ion Channels in Synaptic and Neural Circuit Physiology, Vision: A Platform for Linking Circuits, Perception and Behavior, Advanced Techniques in Molecular Neuroscience, Drosophila Neurobiology: Genes, Circuits & Behavior, Imaging Structure & Function in the Nervous System, Workshop on Autism Spectrum Disorders, Neuroscience of Addiction.

Note that the deadlines for applications range from February – June.
