Western University’s BrainsCAN initiative recently received a substantial $66 million investment from the

Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF). Already ranked amongst the best in the world in cognitive

neuroscience and neuroimaging, Western excels in the breadth of cognitive, computational, clinical,

technological, and translational approaches required for understanding and intervening in brain function.

The goal of BrainsCAN is to significantly reduce the impact of cognitive disorders across the lifespan. To do this,

our scientific approach will identify how cognitive markers map onto specific brain networks using our state of

the art behavioural and imaging platforms.

Reporting to the Director of the BrainsCAN Human Cognition and Sensorimotor Core (HSC Core), the Community

Research Coordinator will work in collaboration with faculty, trainees and research teams on BrainsCAN

research projects. The incumbent is responsible for facilitating recruitment, enrolment, scheduling and

retention of research participants living in the community for BrainsCAN research projects, ensuring compliance

with policies and procedures related to ethical standards, research and privacy. The incumbent liaises with

London area health organizations, associations, school boards, and support groups for the recruitment of

research participants, by establishing effective relationships and promoting and responding to inquiries related

to the research.

The Community Research Coordinator supports the development and management of a research participant

database and provides progress reports and data for use by the research team. The incumbent participates in

the development of marketing materials, identifies and acts on opportunities to increase awareness of

BrainsCAN-related research involving community participants, and liaises with a variety of stakeholders to build

research capacity and ensure the successful coordination of all tasks to achieve the research outcomes.
