News And Opportunities

Kelly and Kayla received an NSERC USRA to work in the lab this summer. Congratulations Kelly and Kayla!

Kayla was selected for a prestigious summer school program in Toronto (York-MITACS vision science summer school) this June 2012. They received 106 applications and only 24 were chosen. Congratulations Kayla!

Independent Study Students and Honours Students

Every semester I take few 2nd - 4th year students to do an Independent study with me. This is great opportunity for those wanting the research experience. I will also take on honours students if they have completed at least one independent study in the past. For more information contact Claudia Gonzalez directly.

Graduate Students

One graduate student position (M.Sc. or Ph.D.) is available in the Brain in Action laboratory (Principal Investigator: Claudia L. R. Gonzalez, Canada Research Chair Tier II) within the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Lethbridge. The candidate should have a strong background in neuroscience, psychology or kinesiology with interests in sensory and motor interactions.

Experience with psychophysical design and analysis, eye-tracking, or motion-tracking is desirable. The selected student will join projects that assess the role of vision and hapsis in reaching and grasping, hemispheric differences in sensorimotor integration and control, and cognitive (i.e. memory, attention, spatial abilities, language) and motor interactions. The laboratory is equipped with an eye-tracker (Eyelink II), a motion-tracking system (Optotrak Certus) and functional transcranial Doppler sonography for cerebral blood flow measurements.

Access to EEG and TMS are also available through collaborations within the Department and with the Canadian Centre of Behavioural Neuroscience (CCBN). Applications, including a curriculum vitae (CV), a letter of intent that specifies research interests, the contact information of two referees, and a copy of undergraduate/graduate transcripts, should be sent directly to

Postdoctoral Fellows
