Yazaki-Sugiyama labs at OIST Graduate University (https://groups.oist.jp/nmcpu) and the International Research Center for Neurointelligence (WPI-IRCN) at the University of Tokyo are interested in how the early developmental stage sensory experiences shape neuronal circuits in the brain and guide the later development of higher cognitive function by using bird song learning, as well as how the time window of song learning is regulated. We are now seeking productive and motivated Post-Doctoral researchers who are interested in neuronal mechanism for controlling auditory experience guided song learning in either of place. We are mainly using electrophysiological method as well as newly developed viral vectors, also are always interested and motivated for incorporating new techniques. Please look up the website (https://www.oist.jp/careers/postdoc-position-available-neuronal-mechanism-critical-period-unit) for OIST and (https://ircn.jp/en/archives/8450) for U Tokyo for the details and contact me (yazaki-sugiyama#oist.jp (please replace # with @ before sending)) if you are interested (also help me for spreading the words to your friends!).
