Job Opportunities

Postdoctoral fellowship

cellular electrophysiology, imaging, computational neuroscience


Applications are invited for a post-doctoral fellowship starting immediately at the University of Ottawa to investigate features of dendritic integration and inhibitory microcircuit function using experimental and computational approaches. The researcher will join a collaborative group with expertise in cellular electrophysiology, two-photon imaging/uncaging, optogenetics, advanced computational modelling and statistical processing (Drs Jean-Claude Béïque and Richard Naud). Expertise in cellular electrophysiology and/or computational neuroscience is an asset. This fully funded position is available immediately, with attractive conditions. The candidate is expected to be competitive for external fellowships.

The researcher will join uOttawa’s Brain and Mind Research Institute’s Center for Neural Dynamics (Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine; Faculty of Medicine). uOttawa’s Neuroscience community is fast expanding, highly dynamic and offers a rich array of collaborative opportunities. Ottawa, the capital of Canada, is a green, multi-cultural city that offers the highest standard of living in the country and is second worldwide for quality of life (Numbeo index, 2015). The city has many parks including the Unesco World Heritage Rideau Canal and is surrounded by an extensive greenbelt. This bilingual, culturally-rich city lies along the border between the province of Quebec and Ontario and is within driving distance to Montréal and Toronto.

The University of Ottawa is a bilingual research university in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The university offers a wide variety of academic programs, administered by ten faculties. It is a member of the U15, a group of research-intensive universities in Canada. In the Maclean’s 2015 Canadian University rankings, the University of Ottawa ranked 2nd for Medical/Science Grants, 2nd for Scholarships & Bursaries and 1st for Student Services in the Medical/Doctoral University category. These rankings reflect the increased competitiveness of UofO's research both nationally and internationally.

Applications including letter of interest and CV should be sent to Dr. Richard Naud by EMAIL rnaud at uottawa.ca.
