Post Doctoral Studies

Postdoctoral Fellows/Research Associates are invaluable members of our neuroscience community at Queen’s University. We are currently in the process of revising our governing constitution to add these individuals to the membership status roster of the Centre for Neuroscience Studies. If you are looking for a placement as a postdoctoral fellow, please take some time on our Faculty & Research page where you will find links to exciting scientific breakthroughs in our various fields of specialization.
