Postdoctoral Associate – Plasticity following sensory loss – Western University

The Neuroplasticity in Sensory Systems Lab (NiSSL.ca) at Western University is seeking a postdoctoral associate interested in how profound hearing loss gives rise to reorganized function in ‘auditory’ cortex. This may involve optogenetic/pharmacological methods to manipulate neural projections between brain areas, and the use of fiber photometry, extracellular electrophysiology and/or behaviour to quantify the effects. […]


Post-doctoral fellow or research assistant in behavioural neuroscience of reward – Samaha laboratory – Université de Montréal

https://samaha-lab.com/en/ http://twitter.com/Samaha_lab Dr Anne-Noel Samaha’s laboratory at the Université de Montréal is looking for a post-doctoral fellow or research associate. The research work involves characterizing the role of the amygdala and its projections in the behavioural response to reward cues in rats. As an example, see https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31953370/ I will hire someone i) whose primary expertise […]


Postdoc position in Neuroscience-University of Calgary

A Postdoctoral position in neuroscience is available in the laboratory of Dr. Derya Sargin at the University of Calgary. Work in our lab is focused on understanding how chronic stress disrupts brain function. Two major lines of research ongoing in the lab are investigating the long-term impact of early life stress and chronic social isolation […]


Post-doc available – Hospital for Sick Children/University of Toronto

Come work with our diverse and collaborative team trying to understand how memories are formed and used in the brains of mice. We use a variety of tools to examine engrams supporting different types of memories. Please send cv and 1 page summary of proposed research project to Sheena.Josselyn@SickKids.ca

Post Doc Position – Preclinical Studies of Cognitive Dysfunctions in Addictions – CAMH

Position Summary: Addiction is a leading contributor to psychiatric morbidity, mortality, and functional impairment. Cognitive dysfunction contributes substantively to this impairment. Executive dysfunction in particular is linked to the onset and persistence of addictive behaviours. The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Canada’s largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital, is leading the path […]


Post-doctoral fellowship – Understanding the impact of chronic stress on the activity of the mPFC excitatory/inhibitory microcircuitry – Université Laval

Understanding the impact of chronic stress on the activity of the mPFC excitatory/inhibitory microcircuitry The Labonté lab is opening a postdoctoral position for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow interested in studying the impact of chronic stress on the activity of the medial prefrontal cortical (mPFC) excitatory/inhibitory circuitry in males and females. This project builds on […]


Post-doctoral fellowship – Deciphering the epigenetics code underlying the expression of major depressive disorder in men and women.

The Labonté lab is opening a postdoctoral position for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow interested in studying the epigenetic regulation of sex-specific gene networks across brain regions from men and women suffering from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). This project relies on solid findings published from our lab showing that the transcriptional organization of gene networks […]
