Learning mechanisms of pain – PhD or post-doctoral position, Martin lab, University of Toronto

The ability to predict pain or other unpleasant events by learning from prior experience is an important adaptive behavior in healthy organisms and can cause disabling fear and avoidance in patients with chronic pain. While there is no single ‘pain processing area of the brain’, our recent efforts have focused on the role of the […]


Post-doctoral position – Dr. Junchul Kim lab in Psychology/Cell and Systems Biology Department in the University of Toronto

A funded postdoctoral fellow position is available (start date is negotiable) at Dr. Junchul Kim lab in Psychology/Cell and Systems Biology Department in the University of Toronto, Canada. The lab uses optogenetics, chemogenetics, intersectional viral tools, and calcium imaging to understand neural circuits underlying memory in mice. The selected candidate will also participate in collaborative […]


Postdoctoral fellowship – Montreal Neurological Institute – McGill University

http://www.mcgill.ca/neuro/ Human studies on mechanisms of general anesthesia We have an active program in the investigation of anesthetic action in human subjects using both surface and intracranial EEG. Our immediate goal is to characterize the EEG changes associated with the progressive loss of volitional control caused by general anesthetics. Our ultimate objective is to understand how […]
