Award 9413-CA (4 grants)

Fulbright Canada Research Chair in Brain, Language, and Music, McGill University

US$25,000 for 4 months
Grants begin in either September 2019 or January 2020
Fulbright Canada Program Officer (Scholars)

McGill’s Centre for Research on Brain, Language and Music (CRBLM) maintains faculty and student research support and engages in research training and scholarly development across four Montreal universities (McGill, Université de Montréal, UQAM and Concordia). Their mission includes: promoting the scientific study of language and music neuroscience, stimulating interdisciplinary and cross- domain collaboration among researchers on basic and applied problems in language and music, fostering innovative research training for graduate and postdoctoral students, disseminating research findings to clinical and educational end-users and forming national and international partnerships. Their goal is to develop a fundamental theoretical, behavioral and neuroscientific understanding of the neurobiological, social and communicative processes of language and music.
The Visiting Research Chair will bring to McGill expertise in one or more of the following areas: in experimental paradigms that are not yet well-represented within the community, such as the application of optical imaging technologies (near-infrared spectroscopy [NIRS]), electrocorticography, transcranial alternating current stimulation, or innovative neuroimaging techniques with emphasis on questions concerning the neural substrates for music and language processing; a substantial background in theoretical and evolutionary perspectives on the acquisition of music and language that would complement ongoing work in this domain within the Centre; complementary expertise in the research on parallels in the development and use of language and music to provoke new interdisciplinary initiatives; the development of language abilities with specific emphasis on bilingualism.

Specializations: Language development, speech production and music performance, human cognitive neuroscience.

Applicants are encouraged to identify their primary and alternate choices on the application. Formal letters of invitation should not be sought; however, applicants are encouraged to contact the institution to discuss research interests.

Grants begin in either September 2019 or January 2020
Fulbright Canada Program Officer (Scholars)

The Werklund School of Education seeks a Fulbright Canada Scholar working in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education. They are especially interested in candidates with active programs of research that span and connect learning experiences in engineering and the physical sciences. While this work may be focused on any grade or age level, the candidate should be open to exploring the relevance and implications of their research for learning in the early years. They seek a colleague who will offer an advanced seminar or graduate course on STEM education and conduct high-level research in her or his areas of interest, taking advantage of the expertise of a vibrant STEM education group at the University of Calgary. There are also opportunities to tap into the strengths of the city of Calgary. A global energy hub, the city has the highest per capita population of engineers in North America, a high-performing public education system, and world-class public science venues.

Specializations: Engineering education, physical sciences education, informal science education.

Applicants are encouraged to identify their primary and alternate choices on the application. Formal letters of invitation should not be sought; however, applicants are encouraged to contact the institution to discuss research interests.
