Open Vacancies


The Programmer Analyst provides applications development expertise to faculty, trainees, and research teams working on BrainsCAN-related projects, and reports to the Director of the BrainsCAN Human Cognition and Sensorimotor Core (HCSC core). The incumbent is responsible to define, develop, test, analyze, and maintain software tools for collection and analysis of data from human neuroimaging to meet the research needs of the unit. The core neuroimaging techniques supported will be primarily functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), and may include structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI and fMRI). These data collection approaches may need to be interfaced with other equipment such as eye movement recording, virtual reality displays, touchscreens, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) systems and electroencephalography (EEG). The incumbent will be involved in all stages of the algorithm creation processes, from brainstorming to implementation, software management and documentation. The incumbent will be expected to find solutions for neuroimaging data analysis through a combination of existing software and custom code to meet users’ needs. The incumbent will work closely with and communicate information to the fNIRS working group at Western, including strategies learned through participation in conferences and collaborations. The incumbent will report to the Director of the BrainsCAN Human Cognition and Sensorimotor Core (HCSC core) and/or designated supervisors as required.

The Research Technician (iEEG) will support a team of doctors and surgeons in Clinical Neurological Sciences (CNS) at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) to perform BrainsCAN-related research in collaboration with researchers in the Brain and Mind Institute (BMI) at Western University. The incumbent will coordinate and facilitate experiments in cognitive neuroscience, while recording from electrodes, in order to provide insights into the function of healthy and normal human cortical circuits. The Research Technician will coordinate experiments between clinicians and neuroscientists and assist them in performing these experiments directly. The incumbent will assist with training staff, students and other researchers on the recording and sensory stimulation equipment in these experiments. The Research Technician will also participate in the compilation, analysis and presentation of results for dissemination. The incumbent will report to the Director of the BrainsCAN Human Cognition and Sensorimotor Core (HCSC core) and/or designated supervisors.
