Other Opportunities:

BrainsCAN Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunity



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:


Masters and PhD Scholarships


Ear Science Institute Australia (Ear Sciences Centre, The University of Western Australia)

One in six people suffer from hearing loss.  Ear Science Institute Australia researchers are dedicated to creating solutions for ear and hearing disorders.

If you are a Masters or PhD candidate seeking a bright future in hearing science research, we want to hear from you.

Applicants are sought from under-graduate backgrounds in science, medicine and engineering.  To qualify for a top-up scholarship at Ear Science you will need to have achieved excellence at first class Honours level or equivalent (to demonstrate involvement and achievement in research).

We are recruiting students with a particular interest in regenerative medicine:

a. Stem cell biology, cell differentiation and inner ear research

b. Materials and tissue engineering research translation.

Applicants who are successful will join our Ear Science research teams working on regeneration for both the inner and middle ear. This will provide you with invaluable and tangible experience in translational research and through Ear Science Institute Australia’s clinical pillars you will be able to access real world applications.

As part of the Ear Science research team, you will be guided and supervised by world leaders in hearing and regeneration research.  For more information click here.

Ear Science Institute Australia is a world leader in key aspects of ear and hearing research.  Our strengths in research include tissue engineering, cellular and molecular biology, hearing implants and service delivery (including telehealth). Ear Science’s research is focussed on translating the research findings into clinical practice, ensuring that both patients and clinicians receive evidence-based solutions.
