Doctoral and postdoctoral studies in the neuroscience of spatial motion estimation and motor planning
Département de physiologie, Université de Montréal.

Applications are invited for doctoral and postdoctoral studies in systems neuroscience in the laboratory of Dr. Andrea Green. The successful applicant will join a multidisciplinary research group studying how the brain integrates multisensory cues to create estimates of our spatial motion as well as how such estimates are used in motor planning. Research in my laboratory involves computational models of the nervous system, behavioral and neural recording experiments in non-human primates as well as human behavioral studies. Depending on the applicant's qualifications and interests, they will help to design and conduct behavioral and/or neurophysiological experiments, analyze data, develop theoretical models of neural systems, prepare manuscripts for publication, and participate in international conferences. 

While students with a strong background in biological sciences, engineering, mathematics, or computer science, are particularly encouraged to apply, all motivated students with an interest in understanding the brain will be considered. The successful applicant will receive a competitive salary in accordance with university guidelines. For further information, please contact Dr. Andrea Green (andrea.green at umontreal .ca) Applicants are asked to submit a curriculum vita, a transcript of previous studies, and the contact information for two references, to:

Montréal is consistently rated as one of the world's most livable cities and has been called "Canada's Cultural Capital". It has the highest number of university students per capita in the entire continent. More than 17,000 foreign students from some 150 countries benefit from among the lowest tuition fees in North America. Compared to other cities of similar stature, the cost of living in Montréal is very reasonable, particularly in terms of housing.

Montréal has a vibrant neuroscience community spanning four major universities (Université de Montréal, McGill University, Concordia University, and the Université de Québec à Montréal) and the Montréal Neurological Institute. The Université de Montréal, with its two affiliated schools, the École Polytechnique and the HEC Montréal, is the largest university in Québec and the second largest in Canada, with over 55,000 students from around the world and some 10,000 employees. Deeply rooted in Montréal and dedicated to its international mission, the Université de Montréal is one of the top universities in the French-speaking world.

The Université de Montréal is a French-speaking institution, and most of the courses are given in French. However, the work environment is bilingual and the MSc or PhD thesis can be written in French or English.
