The Neurophysiology of Learning and Behaviour lab at Concordia University led by Dr Mihaela Iordanova is seeking to recruit new graduate students to embark on novel examination of how the brain learns to make predictions about the world and how past predictions can be updated with new information and behavior modified. Our research combines theoretically-driven behavioural designs with high-density electrophysiology, optogenetic, chemogenetic, and pharmacological neuroscience methods.
The lab is part of the Centre for Studies in Behavioural Neurobiology (CSBN) and provides invaluable opportunity to become part of a strong research community studying learning, memory and addiction from the cell to the circuit level. In addition, Dr Iordanova is faculty in the Department of Psychology, thus providing an opportunity for collaborative ventures with other faculty (clinical, developmental) working with human populations.
The selected candidate(s) will receive a minimum of $17,500 per year in funding, including a combination of entrance awards and scholarships, research assistantships and teaching assistantships.
Candidates for the MA program (Research Option) should have an undergraduate honours degree, or its equivalent, in Psychology or closely related discipline. The candidate is expected to be inquisitive, enthusiastic, and dedicated to basic science research that requires fast learning of new techniques. Fast-tracking into the PhD program is an option for outstanding candidates.
Candidates for the PhD program (Research Option) should have a Master’s degree in Psychology or closely related discipline.
