PDF Collaborative Research Grant

BrainsCAN is dedicated to supporting novel, collaborative, and interdisciplinary research in cognitive neuroscience at all career levels, including postdoctoral fellows (PDF). The BrainsCAN PDF Collaborative Research Grant aims to promote postdoctoral networking, independence, and productivity, while increasing collaboration and research innovation across labs and/or faculties.

The investigator team must have at least two PDFs (from different labs) affiliated with any faculty or department engaging in cognitive neuroscience research. Although the grant is intended to allow an independent research opportunity, the research team must also contain a faculty supervisor, specifically the researcher who will hold the ethics and/or biosafety certifications related to the proposed research. Additional collaborators and/or consultants can be included as needed.

For further details including team and project eligibility, as well as budget details, please consult the Program Guidelines below.
