Postdoctoral Positions

Fuat Balci (2021)

Graduate student positions available (Master’s, Ph.D.)

Project description:

Seeking graduate students with a keen interest in the study of the information processing and neural bases of interval timing and error processing in mice.


Four-year Bachelor’s (GPA 3.0 or higher) or Master’s degree in Neuroscience, Biology, Psychology or related fields.

Prior experience: All applicants will be considered. However, applicants with experience in animal research and behavioral neuroscience methods will be prioritized.

Start date:

Program of study begins Fall (September) 2021. However, a start date of Jan 2022 may be considered.

Interested individuals should:

Send a 1-page letter of interest (stating their motivation and any research experience), CV/resume, and the contact information of two references by May 12, 2021 (or until position is filled) to:
Fuat Balci
Associate Professor
University of Manitoba
Departments of Biological Sciences & Computer Science

After receiving supervisors support, it is anticipated that the applicant will submit an official application to the Graduate School in Biological Sciences at the University of Manitoba.

Deadline for Canadian/US applicants is June 1, 2021 (for Fall, 2021). Deadline for international applicants is July 1, 2021 (for Winter, 2022).
