Weston Brain Institute Open Funding Opportunities
The Weston Brain Institute is offering the following programs:
Support for top Canadian PhD students to travel to and work in world-renowned international labs for up to 12 months during their PhD, to further their translational research on neurodegenerative diseases of aging.
$60,000 per year, pro-rated at $5,000 per month to fit shorter travel and specific project needs.
Eligible applicants must be current PhD students at Canadian universities who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents. Applicants must be willing to travel to and conduct translational research on neurodegenerative disease(s) of aging while studying abroad in a world class laboratory.
This program accepts applications on a rolling basis. All applicants will be notified of the award decision 2 months after their application submission.
Applicants are encouraged to contact Matthew Sacheli at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-967-7828 to discuss their eligibility and whether their project is in scope, prior to finding a host advisor.
Funding for exceptional Canadian postdoctoral researchers to receive international training at the University of Oxford.
We encourage applications that bring in expertise, technologies or approaches in the following areas to advance the development of therapeutics and tools for neurodegenerative diseases of aging: Artificial Intelligence, big data, machine learning, data science, computer science, medicinal chemistry, biostatistics and engineering.

£57,000 per year (£44,000 per year + benefits) for 2 years.
Certain complementary approaches (i.e., diet, physical activity, sleep and nutritional supplements) will be eligible for funding through the Postdoctoral Scholars at Oxford program, if applications meet our disease and project scope criteria.
Applicants must be postdoctoral researchers who are normally resident in Canada, and plan to return to Canada to live and work upon completion of their postdoctoral position. They will have demonstrated outstanding scientific contributions, and will have the potential to be competitive for faculty positions in Canada following this postdoctoral position at Oxford. Further details apply.
This program accepts applications on a rolling basis, until 2 positions at a time are filled. All applicants will be notified of the award decision 2 months after their application submission.
