Graduate Study Opportunity in Insect Neuroethology – University of Manitoba

The Invertebrate Neuroethology Laboratory in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Manitoba is seeking one or two talented MSc or PhD students starting in the Fall term of 2021. Our laboratory is interested in how brains select appropriate behavioural responses to varying conditions, how different brains produce different behaviours, and how brains change with age and experience. Using primarily honey bees and cockroaches, we employ immunohistochemistry, microscopy, electrophysiology, and a wide variety of behavioural assays.

Application deadline for Canadian and US applicants: June 1, 2021.
Application deadline for international applicants: March 1, 2021.

For more information, please contact Dr. Byron N. Van Nest at least two months prior to these deadlines.
