We are pleased to announce the second Request for Applications for the BrainsCAN Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. This program is part of Western’s $66M BrainsCAN initiative, supported by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF).

The BrainsCAN Postdoctoral Fellowship Program has been developed to attract the world’s most promising early career neuroscientists whose innovative work has already achieved impact, and who have demonstrated great potential for continued contributions.

Already ranked amongst the best in the world in cognitive neurosciences and neuroimaging, Western researchers employ cognitive, computational, clinical, and translational approaches to understand and intervene in brain function. Postdoctoral Fellows will have access to BrainsCAN-supported core facilities for neuroimaging (including research-only 3T, 7T and 9.4T MRI systems); for studying human cognition, behaviour and sensorimotor control; for development and use of computational methods; and for establishing and exploring rodent and nonhuman primate models of cognition and behaviour.

Up to 10 Fellowships will be awarded in the Spring 2018 competition, to highly qualified individuals from any country. Depending on prior experience, awards will be offered for 2 years (Tier II) or 3 years (Tier I), potentially renewable, with annual salary ranging from $55,000-$75,000 CAD (plus benefits), as well as an independent research/travel allowance of $3000-$5000 per year. Tier I recipients will also have access to apply for internal BrainsCAN operating funds of over $12M for innovative research. Applicants must identify and contact potential advisors at Western before applying. An interdisciplinary, collaborative approach, involving affiliation with more than one lab, is strongly encouraged.
Application deadline May 1, 2018 11:59 EST. Further information can be found at: brainscan.uwo.ca<http://brainscan.uwo.ca/>.
