At the Center we consider the contribution of our students to the quality of our research
invaluable. Students are full participants in research and receive substantial recognition
for their achievements, including co-authorship on publications and opportunities to present
their findings in person at international conferences. The diverse research interests of
center members and the unique collaborative atmosphere among laboratories, offer unmatched
opportunities for training in the exciting field of behavioral neuroscience, at the level of
Undergraduate, Graduate and
Undergraduate studies Undergraduate students are frequently introduced to research in behavioral neuroscience as part
of the research requirements for the Research Methods (Psych 311) or thesis courses (Psych 400,
and Psych 430) in the Psychology undergraduate program, or the Science College research courses.
Other undergraduate students work as volunteers or as paid research assistants in Center
laboratories or are recipients of NSERC summer research fellowships.
Graduate studies Members of the Center supervise the research of students enrolled in both clinical and general
profiles of the Psychology M.A. and Ph.D.programs as well as Biology and Exercise Science graduate
students. All of these programs attract both Canadian and International students. Many of our
students receive fellowships from government granting agencies and teaching and research
assistantships are also available. All graduate students at CSBN are eligible for some form of
financial support. Prospective students should consult the contacts for graduate studies.
Post-Graduate studies Postdoctoral trainees are an integral part of the research activities of the Center. The
wide array of conceptual and technical expertise of Center members, together with our collaborative
approach to research and training provides an especially rich environment within which postdoctoral
fellows can broaden their own research experience and skills. Funding for postdoctoral fellowships
is provided both by individual researchers and government agencies.
