Master's or Doctoral Position in London/Canada


We are pleased to announce the “Call for Applications” for the BrainsCAN Graduate Studentship Program. This program is part of Western’s BrainsCAN initiative, supported by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF). The CFREF investment enables researchers at the University, along with their national and international academic and commercial partners, to seek answers to fundamental questions regarding how we learn, think, move and communicate. The Studentship Program was developed to attract the world’s most promising prospective master’s and doctoral students in cognitive neuroscience to Western University.

Up to 5 BrainsCAN Graduate Studentships will be awarded in this competition to highly qualified individuals pursuing a collaborative research project in cognitive neuroscience. This Studentship is open to any prospective student not currently enrolled in a graduate program at Western. The program will provide a minimum salary of $25,000 for a maximum of 2 years for master’s students, and $35,000 for 4 years for doctoral students.

Applicants must identify and contact potential advisors at Western before applying. An interdisciplinary, collaborative approach, involving more than one lab is a requirement for application. It is strongly recommended that all potential applicants review Western’s Graduate School Admission procedures and academic calendar prior to preparing their application.

The application deadline is February 1st, 2020.
