We’re excited to share with you our uOBMRI CONNECT calendar, which aims to compiles all ongoing educational and research events with an affiliation to Neuroscience Program and the University of Ottawa Brain and Mind Research Institute or its partners (Bruyère Research Institute, Carleton University, CHEO, Montfort Hospital, The Ottawa Hospital, The Royal's Institute of Mental Health Research or the University of Ottawa). This calendar reflects all scheduled events so far, and will continue to be updated into Fall 2019.

How to submit an event to the uOBMRI CONNECT calendar:

  • We’re happy to update our calendar to include an event you’d like to share with our community! Please submit your event information via our Google Form

Please note:

  • The uOBMRI Team will process your event submission within 7 business days.
  • If you have a seminar series calendar available and want to enter multiple events into our calendar, please e-mail uottawabmri@uottawa.ca.

Fellowships

The uOBMRI, along with its partners and affiliations, award a variety of fellowships to its students and trainees. These fellowships give students a unique opportunity to focus their efforts towards specific areas of brain-related research.

Université Paris-Descartes

Annual funding opportunities are available for collaborative projects in the neurosciences between the University of Ottawa and Université Paris-Descartes. Our goal is to facilitate and strengthen collaborative relationships between the two universities and to establish the scientific foundations of a joint training and research program.

 

Neuromuscular

The University of Ottawa Centre for Neuromuscular Disease represents a multidisciplinary research and training initiative that unites world-class basic and clinical researchers working towards the common goal of diagnosing, characterizing and developing transformative therapies for patients with neuromuscular disease.

Learn more about fellowships and other opportunities related to neuromuscular diseases.

Parkinson’s Research Consortium

Parkinson’s Research Consortium logo

The Parkinson Research Consortium (PRC) was established in 2004 in Ottawa with the goal to create a hub for innovative ideas in Parkinson's Disease research. The PRC is composed of a select group of scientists from the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) with diverse scientific talents and expertise in genetics, molecular biology, neuroscience and patient care.

 

Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery

The Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery is a joint initiative of the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Canada’s leading stroke research centres. Headquartered at the University of Ottawa, the Partnership supports cutting-edge research to improve recovery and quality of life for people who experience a stroke.

CPSR Training Awards

Summer Studentships

Summer studentships are available on a competitive basis for undergraduate medical students at the University of Ottawa who are enrolled in their first or second year of training.

Date Posted: 19/08/2019

 Graduate Student (MS.c./Ph.D.) position  

Contact/Scientist: Dr. J.Wang

Program: Regenerative Medicine

The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) is an Affiliated Research Institute of the University of Ottawa and the research arm of The Ottawa Hospital. The OHRI has grown rapidly to become one of the largest and most important hospital-based research institutes in Canada.

Position available: Graduate (MS.c./Ph.D.) student position

 

Description of the position:  Our research focuses on delineating molecular mechanisms that regulate neural stem cell reprograming and differentiation, with the ultimate goal of defining ways to recruit the stem cells that are resident in the brains or are derived from non-neuronal cells, and to thereby potentially promote neural repair.  We are currently using stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and autism as brain disease models to explore underlying molecular mechanisms.  A variety of molecular, cellular, biochemical and behavioral techniques are used in the laboratory, including transgenic mouse models, in vivo neurodegenerative disease model,  primary cell culture,  co-IP and ChIP, and RNA-seq approaches and etc.

 

 

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Experience in Molecular Biology (cloning, mutagenesis, PCR), Cell Biology (cell line or primary cell culture, immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry) or in vivo animal model study.
  • Excellence at the academic level and in research
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills


Deadline: Until the position is filled.

Individuals who are interested in the position should submit curriculum vitae, a copy of official transcripts, statement of research interest and names of three references to:

Mutltiple Postdoctoal postitions available:

Theoretical neuroscience, nonlinear/statistical physics, cellular electrophysiology and imaging, computational neuroscience

Multiple theoretical, computational and experimental neuroscience postdoctoral positions are available immediately at the Centre for Neural Dynamics of the University of Ottawa.

Position 1: Theoretical neuroscience and nonlinear/statistical physics focusing on the dynamics of a population of core recurrent neurons within the hippocampus and their role in temporal and spatial memory. The candidate will be involved in collaborations between Profs. Len Maler, André Longtin and Jean-Claude Béïque.

Position 2: Experimental and computational neuroscience focusing on dendritic integration. Expertise in cellular electrophysiology and/or computational neuroscience is an asset. The candidate will be involved in collaborations between Profs. Richard Naud and Jean-Claude Béïque.

Position 3: Computational and experimental neuroscience focusing on dendritic integration and recurrent circuitry. Expertise in cellular electrophysiology and/or computational neuroscience is an asset. The candidate will be involved in collaborations between Profs. André Longtin, Richard Naud, Jean-Claude Béïque and Len Maler.

The researcher will join uOttawa’s Brain and Mind Research Institute’s Center for Neural Dynamics. 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 and the vast Gatineau Park twenty minutes away. This bilingual, safe and culturally-rich city lies along the border between the provinces of Ontario and Québec, is a few hours of driving away from Montréal and Toronto and served by an international airport.
