The NDOPL is searching for a Master’s level and PhD level student to help investigate the underlying mechanisms involved in the transmission of early experiences to neurological factors that can influence developmental trajectories and neuroplasticity. Projects will be designed to examine both pre and postnatal factors that alter an individual’s susceptibility to brain injury, neurodevelopmental disorders, and cognitive deficits.
As members of the NDOPL students will be an integral part of the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute (ACHRI), the Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI), and the Department of Psychology, at the University of Calgary. The laboratory is uniquely positioned to foster translational research in an environment ripe with strong academic leaders, neuropsychologists, and clinician scientists.
Prospective students would begin their program in the Fall of 2016. Although funding is available, but students will be expected to apply for graduate funding. All interested students should contact Dr. Mychasiuk (firstname.lastname@example.org) and apply to appropriate graduate program.
