I started my Faculty job search quite early in my postdoctoral training and this as well as the workshops organized by the Postdoctoral Office and SoMCC (and their precious one-on-one advice) helped me identify the best opportunity for me.

At the IRCM, building on my experience here at Stanford, I will create and direct the Neuroethics Research Unit, one of the first teams dedicated to the ethics of neurological sciences. I will be working in an interdisciplinary research environment and foresee extensive collaboration with both McGill University and University of Montreal faculty and health professionals. I always knew I wanted to do career in research. Now it will be in a position to attract others to get involved in collaborative ethics research with the aim of improving healthcare in neurology and psychiatry.
