Graduate Study Opportunity in Insect Neuroethology

The Invertebrate Neuroethology Laboratory in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Manitoba is seeking one or two talented MSc or PhD students starting in the Fall term of 2021. We are currently funded by the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

Our primary interest is in how brains produce behaviour. We strive to understand the neural circuitry that facilitates appropriate behavioural responses when an animal perceives specific cues and environmental conditions. We are also interested in learning and memory, sensory processing, senescence, and identifying genotypic contributions to cognitive ability. Using primarily honey bees and cockroaches as model systems, we employ immunohistochemistry, microscopy, electrophysiology, and a wide variety of behavioural assays.

Application deadline for Canadian and US applicants: June 1, 2021.
Application deadline for international applicants: March 1, 2021.

For more information, please contact Dr. Byron N. Van Nest at byron.vannest@umanitoba.ca at least two months prior to these deadlines.
