PDF opportunity alert!

We're looking to hire a postdoc with interests in the neurophysiology of rapid visually-guided actions. This work builds on a stream of research detailing the profile of upper limb muscle recruitment in humans and non-human primates. The research will involve recording and inactivation of neural activity in cortical and subcortical areas. Experience with neurophysiological recordings in non-human primates is particularly desired, as is experience with EMG recordings in humans or animals. This position is funded by a project grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and the successful candidate will join a collaboration with the Pruszynski lab, as well as international collaborations with groups in Australia, the Netherlands, and the United States.

Applicants should have or should be close to obtaining a PhD in neuroscience or other relevant fields. The positions will initially last for 3 years, with possibility for renewal. Annual salary depends on the level of experience, but will be $58,000 at the minimum. Start date is negotiable.


Applications or questions should be submitted electronically as a single PDF file titled Lastname_Firstname.pdf directly to

The file should include:

1.     a CV, including a list of publications,

2.     a statement of research interest outlining current experience and plans for future research, 1–2 pages,

3.     names and contact information for three academic referees.

Joining the lab

Our laboratory provides a unique research experience via exposure to cutting-edge techniques in neurophysiology and behavioural neuroscience. Projects with other local and international collaborators make for an outstanding research environment. 

We’re always on the lookout for new trainees with an interest in neuroscience, so please reach out with a CV and statement of interest. The research we do is involves some coding, so please reference your skills along these lines. 


Graduate students with a background or interest in Neuroscience, Physiology, Psychology, Computer Science or Biomedical Engineering are encouraged to consider joining the lab. Students are usually supervised through the Graduate Program in Neuroscience, but arrangements can also be made through the graduate programs in Physiology & Pharmacology,  or Psychology.


Undergraduate students wishing to do their honours undergraduate thesis in the lab should contact Dr. Corneil and the appropriate coordinator in the undergrad program in Neuroscience.
