Graduate student position studying astrocyte-neuron interactions – Stobart laboratory, University of Manitoba

We are seeking a motivated graduate student with an interest in glial biology to work on an exciting project related to astrocyte ionotropic signaling and synaptic modulation. We have developed cutting-edge in vivo calcium imaging techniques to simultaneously monitor astrocyte and neuron activity and we will combine this with novel mouse models to probe astrocyte […]

Seeking Graduate Students (MS.c./Ph.D.) in the field of neural stem cell regulation and function, Lindsey Lab at the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba

Description of the position: Our research focuses on uncovering the function and regulation of neural stem cell populations during brain development, behaviour, and following neurotrauma. The overarching goal of our lab is to define conserved themes in vertebrate neural stem cell regulation at the molecular and cellular levels. To address this goal, our lab takes […]


Seeking Graduate Students (MS.c./Ph.D.) in the field of neural stem cell reprogramming and differentiation, Wang lab at Ottawa Hospital Research Institute

Description of the position: Our research focuses on delineating molecular mechanisms that regulate neural stem cell reprograming and differentiation, with the ultimate goal of defining ways to recruit the stem cells that are resident in the brains or are derived from non-neuronal cells, and to thereby potentially promote neural repair. We are currently using stroke, […]


PhD position in Visual Neuroscience and Neurophotonics at the Université de Montréal

Funded PhD positions in Neurophotonics and Visual Neuroscience at the Université de Montréal (www.opto.umontreal.ca/cortex). We use a range of behavioral and neurophysiological techniques including calcium imaging and optogenetics on mice to study brain circuits underlying vision. We also focus on exploring plasticity after a stroke in the visual system and developing innovative neuroprosthesis devices to […]


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 […]


Exploring inhibitory neuron-secreted chemokines as a novel remyelination therapy – Post-doc or student position, Voronova lab, U Alberta

Neural precursor cells in adult mammalian brain, such as subventricular zone (SVZ) neural stem cells and oligodendrocyte precursors in brain parenchyma, form oligodendrocytes throughout life. The purpose of oligodendrocytes is to produce myelin, an insulating material that performs vital functions in efficient neural information transmission and constitutes the brain white matter. Demyelinating disorders occur when […]
