Multiple positions available at the Canadian Brain Research Strategy

The Canadian Brain Research Strategy (CBRS) is a community-led initiative uniting to advance Canada as a world leader in collaborative, transdisciplinary, open, and ethical brain research. Our objective is to make brain research a national priority by establishing a Canadian Brain Research Initiative.

We are looking to fill three roles but are flexible on the job descriptions and number of personnel:

  • Science Writer/Communicator to engage with our varied stakeholders and the public as we work to advance brain research as a national priority.
  • Program Assistant/Associate to help us coordinate a series of meetings and focus groups, and to synthesize these findings as we build a collective nation-wide strategy for brain research.
  • Program Manager to manage and facilitate the work of various multistakeholder teams to make advances in a series of strategic initiatives within our organization’s larger mission.

We welcome enthusiastic applicants with a passion for brain science who embrace a startup mentality and are looking to expand their professional skill set and for opportunities for growth. This job might be for you if you have a research background and are looking to develop a career path outside of academia.

You’ll get to work closely with top leaders in neuroscience and mental health research across the country and expand your network as we bring together the diverse neuroscience ecosystem – brain research initiatives and projects, public and private funders, health charities, as well as communities and patient organizations across the country – in a uniquely collaborative effort that will push the frontiers of brain science, for the benefit of all Canadians.

These positions are fully remote and the candidate can be located anywhere in Canada.
