The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada sponsors a Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) Program to fund innovative training of teams of highly qualified students and postdoctoral fellows from Canada and abroad. Our mandate for the CAN-ACT is to train junior researchers in computational approaches in sensorimotor neuroscience. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are being recruited from a broad range of disciplines from psychology to computer science, mathematics, and engineering. A team of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows will be based in each of the three universities -- York University, Queen's University and The University of Western Ontario. These individuals will also have an opportunity to spend time in research settings in the other two universities. Collaborative exchanges will give trainees an opportunity to acquire new, first-hand research skills that they can apply to their own particular projects. For details on how to apply, see the Jobs & Opportunities section.
