Fulbright Canada Research Chair in Public Health at the University of Guelph

US$25,000 for 4 months
September 2018 or January 2019
Fulbright Canada Program Officer (Scholars)

The most serious issues facing humans, animals, and the environment cannot be solved within current disciplinary silos. At the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) at the University of Guelph (UG), One Health research and training provides a powerful paradigm to bring disciplines together and leverage knowledge generation in new ways to benefit the whole of society. 

This Research Chair will employ and extend the One Health framework in innovative ways, using approaches drawn from the spectrum of interdisciplinary areas under the One Health umbrella. These areas include research into diseases arising at the interface of human and animal populations, and the environment, and could also include translational/comparative research which takes advantage of the correlations between naturally occurring diseases in humans and animals. This Research Chair will also contribute to the training of researchers and veterinarians, providing them with an understanding of the power of the One Health framework for addressing global health challenges. 

The OVC’s productive partnerships with research teams and centres (including the Centre of Public Health and Zoonosis and the Cooperative Wildlife Health Cooperative), agri-food industries, the health professions, and federal and provincial human and animal health agencies, will provide the Visiting Research Chair with a unique opportunity to engage with a variety One Health stakeholders.

Specializations: Zoonosis, disease surveillance, predictive health analytics, climate change, food and water safety, antimicrobial resistance, human and animal well-being, comparative medicine, translational medicine, eco-health, wildlife conservation, ecosystem resilience.

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.

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

US$25,000 for 4 months
September 2018 or January 2019 
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]), magnetic encephalography (MEG) 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, and human cognitive neuroscience.
