Dr. Mur’s lab in the Department of Psychology at Western University has several openings for graduate students. Research in the lab focuses on visual cognition and revolves around the following questions. How do we recognise objects? What neural and computational mechanisms underlie this ability? How are incoming visual signals integrated with behavioural goals? We address these questions using psychophysics, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and computational modeling. For more information about the lab, please see http://www.mariekemur.com<http://www.mariekemur.com/>.

The lab is accepting MSc/PhD students via the Psychology and Neuroscience Graduate Programs at Western. For more information about the programs, please see http://psychology.uwo.ca/graduate/index.html and https://www.schulich.uwo.ca/neuroscience/graduate/. Application deadlines for these programs are 4 and 18 Jan 2019, respectively.

Western University is currently expanding its strength in neuroscience with a $66M grant from the Canadian government (www.uwo.ca/brainscan<http://www.uwo.ca/brainscan>). Successful candidates will join the Brain and Mind Institute (www.uwo.ca/bmi<http://www.uwo.ca/bmi>), one of the leading centres in cognitive neuroscience in Canada, with a full range of ultra-high field, research-dedicated MRI scanners (3T, 7T, 9.4T) and state-of-the-art laboratories for cognitive, behavioural, and neurophysiological testing in humans, nonhuman primates and rodents.
