The Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience ( has established a new program in Systems and Computational Neuroscience approaches to studying Brain Dynamics, under the sponsorship of a $20M Polaris Award from The Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research.

The faculty members of this program include Bruce McNaughton, David Euston, Artur Luczak, Masami Tatsuno and Aaron Gruber.
Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) information coding and self-organization of neural systems, memory consolidation, decision making and reward systems, neural network modeling, neural activity imaging, brain dynamics and information processing in sleep and waking, brain – machine interface, psychiatric illness, and aging of the brain and other conditions that affect learning and memory systems (for sample research see: Takehara-Nishiuchi K, McNaughton BL. Science. 2008; Euston DR, Tatsuno M, McNaughton BL. Science. 2007; Guzowski et al. Nature Neuroscience 2, 1120-1124; Gruber AJ et al. J Comput Neurosci. 2006; Luczak A et al. Neuron 2009).
Candidates should email a letter of interest describing their research career goals, skills and experience, their C.V., and the names of three references (please do not have reference letters sent unless requested) to bruce(dot)mcnaughton(at)uleth(dot)ca . Applicants should put “CCBN Polaris recruitment” in the header of their email. Salary scales will be competitive with NIH standards for postdoctoral and graduate trainees. Lethbridge Alberta is located two hours from Calgary (see target=_blank ) and 90 minutes from the Canadian Rockies and is a safe, family friendly environment
