  • OPEN POSITION: Postdoctoral Fellow in Sensory-Motor Control

    Postdoctoral positions are available in the Motor Control Lab ( at the Centre for Brain and Mind ( at the University of Western Ontario in
    London,Ontario, Canada. The goal of our research is to understand how the
    brain controls voluntary movement, and how motor learning is achieved.
    Empirical studies using human subjects and theoretical studies using
    computational models and numerical simulations are carried out to test
    hypotheses about how the brain controls movement. A list of recent
    publications can be found at and a list
    of research topics can be found at

    Candidates must have a strong analytical background and a demonstrated
    interest in sensory-motor control. They should have completed (or be near to
    completing) a PhD or equivalent in neuroscience, cognitive science,
    computational neuroscience, computational cognitive science, psychology,
    physiology, physics, mathematics, computer science, machine learning or a
    related field. Preference will be given to candidates with sufficient
    programming skills to develop and implement numerical simulations (eg. in C,
    Python, R or Matlab).

    Canadians and foreign citizens may apply. Some funds are available to
    support applicants however applicants are encouraged to apply for their own
    funding as well, through programs offered in their home countries, or from
    one of the major funding agencies in Canada (e.g. CIHR, NSERC). Particularly
    strong eligible applicants may be supported through the new Banting
    Postdoctoral Fellowship program offered by the Government of Canada. (

    Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships. Canada is building world-class research
    capacity by recruiting top-tier postdoctoral researchers at an
    internationally competitive level of funding and positioning them for
    success as the research leaders of tomorrow. These prestigious two-year
    fellowships worth $70,000 (CAD) per year, are open to both Canadian and
    international researchers who have recently completed a PhD, PhD-equivalent
    or health professional degree.
