Graduate Study

December 2018: Currently all of the funded graduate student positions in my lab have been filled.
Additional positions are avaliable for students who hold funding (studentships, scholarships, etc) to support their graduate studies. One line of projects is suited to someone with experience and interests with computing, writing software and/or data analysis methods. The other line of projects is suited to someone with a life sciences background with interests in using functional MRI to study pain processes in healthy people and chronic pain conditions. Projects could also span both of these lines of research.
Graduate research projects in my lab provide many opportunities for learning all aspects of functional MRI, from data acquisition through to develoment of analysis methods. These projects also provide opportunities for learning aspects of physiology and neuroanatomy related to pain and sensory processing, and are ideal for someone interested in a future career in research.
Previous experience with MRI or fMRI is not required, but you must have a strong desire to carry out cutting-edge research and to learn how to develop new ideas. Want more informaiton? e-mail Dr. Patrick Stroman .

Students interested in pursuing MSc or PhD studies should apply to the Centre for Neuroscience Studies Graduate Program.

Undergraduate Honours Projects

Those interested in pursuing an Undergraduate Honours research project in MRI should contact Patrick Stroman to see the lab and discuss possible projects.
