ERC-funded project: neural control of locomotion before and after spinal cord injury in salamanders – Graduate student position

PROJECT: Salamanders can swim underwater and walk on ground. Their spinal cord regenerates after a full transection and the animal recovers voluntary locomotion after a few weeks. How this occurs is largely unknown. Genetic dissection of salamander neural circuits is now feasible with methods for manipulation, elimination, and visualization of genetically-defined cells. Such approaches can […]


Postdoc and graduate students (Master’s and/or Ph.D. levels) positions at intersection of AI and Neuroscience – University of Lethbridge

Description: We are looking for postdocs and graduate students (Master’s and/or Ph.D. levels) to use inspirations from neuroscience to make better AI and conversely to apply AI to better understand brain function and behaviour. Projects will be related to our recent work: Neurons learn by predicting future activity. Nature Machine Intelligence 2022 https://www.nature.com/articles/s42256-021-00430-y Predictive neuronal […]


Neurophysiology graduate student position at the University of Victoria, BC

We are inviting applications for a Master’s or PhD student position to study synaptic neurophysiology at the University of Victoria, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The selected candidate will join the team of Dr. Raad Nashmi’s laboratory.

Master’s Position Available – Investigating the Molecular Regulators of Brain Development – University of Manitoba

Description of the position: This project aims to investigate the molecular regulators of neural stem cell lineage progression and their role in determining cell types and states in the developing central nervous system. The successful candidate will be directly supervised by Dr. Robert Beattie (expert in studying neural development using mouse models) and apply state-of-the-art […]


Master’s Position Available to Study the Effect of Neural Stem Cell Senescence on Brain Repair – Lindsey Lab, University of Manitoba

Description of the position: This project uniquely examines the role of cellular senescence in regulating the regenerative capacity of neural stem cells in the aging brain using the adult zebrafish model. The objective of the proposed study is to define which zebrafish neural stem cell populations undergo aging, how this is regulated by changes in […]


Master’s Position Available to Study the Role of the Unfolded Protein Response (UPR) during Spinal Cord Injury – Lindsey/Logue Labs, University of Manitoba

Description of the position: This project uniquely investigates the role of the unfolded protein response (UPR) in regulating the regenerative ability of neural stem cells following spinal cord injury (SCI) using the zebrafish model. The objective of the proposed study is to identify the temporal dynamics of UPR signaling during the repair process, characterize the […]


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 […]
