Open Vacancies

Computational Neuroscience

The Faculty of Science is inviting applications from exceptional investigators for two probationary (tenure-track) faculty positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in Computational Neuroscience. The rank of the successful applicants will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. These unique appointments are initially funded through BrainsCAN (, a $66M initiative funded by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund at Western University, and allow a research-intensive focus for the first 5 years of the appointment. Successful candidates will be provided a yearly research budget for this period, and will be eligible for further internal funding including research accelerator awards, and support for postdoctoral research fellows and PhD students. Given this unique federally funded research-intensive stream, candidates are not eligible to hold Canadian federal Tri-council funding as a PI for the BrainsCAN funded period, but may hold other grants. Candidates are expected to transition to a well-funded research program including Tri-council sources by the end of the 5-year period.
