Spring application deadlines for DAAD's Short-Term Research Grant (PhDs and Postdocs), Research Stays (Faculty) and German Studies Research Grant.
The Faculty of Medicine's Office of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs extends hearty congratulations to:
This competition aims to attract, train and retain top students at the postdoctoral level from across disciplines and around the world to participate in interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral research training opportunities related to brain and mental health research, knowledge translation/mobilization and innovation.
McGill’s Family Medicine Graduate Student Society (FMGSS) was recently recognized by the Post Graduate Student Society (PGSS) of McGill University awarded both the Post Graduate Student Association of the Year Award and the Best Academic Event Award. The awards were presented during the 2018 PGSS Awards Night on April 12, an event that aims to recognize students, student groups and student-run events that have proven themselves to be outstanding within PGSS.
As part of the HBHL-Mitacs partnership, a special joint initiative has been organized to send students from McGill University to Chinese and Japanese academic institutions, and bring in students from these international universities to McGill. This is part of Mitacs' Globalink Research Awards program. This program provides awards valued at $6,000 CAD for travel and accommodation costs for Canadian students to undertake collaborative research projects at international institutions.
Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL), in conjunction with Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, is proud to announce the launch of its 2018 Graduate Student Fellowships competition. This competition aims to attract, train and retain top students at the graduate level from across disciplines and around the world to participate in interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral research training opportunities related to brain and mental health research, knowledge translation/mobilization and innovation.
Applications are due on April 20, 2018.
On March 4th, 2018, over 200 undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers flocked to the University of Western Ontario to attend the 2nd Biennial Inspiring Young Women in STEM Conference. The conference focused on inspiring and supporting young women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) by providing the opportunity to network with and learn from established women in STEM fields.
Earlier this week, the first HBHL-SKILLSETS workshop was held. The workshop, entitled Increase Your Impact: Sharing neuroscience research with diverse audiences, was facilitated by Falisha Karpati (Program Officer, Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives) and John Van Heest (Communications Administrator, Teaching and Learning Services). Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all around McGill joined us to learn about research dissemination methods, and making neuroscience content accessible and engaging for different audiences.
Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives (HBHL) emphasizes the training of highly qualified researchers, clinicians, and informaticians. This includes not only an excellence in research training, but also complementary training opportunities focused on professional skills. HBHL is proud to collaborate with SKILLSETS on a new suite of professional development offerings specially-designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with an interest in neuroscience.
