How do human and machine intelligence arise? The International Research Center for Neurointelligence (IRCN) at The University of Tokyo was launched in October 2017 to tackle this challenge over the next ten years under the World Premier International (WPI) Research Initiative of Japan. IRCN researchers will understand emergent principles of neural circuit development to inspire next-generation neural computation for artificial intelligence and novel therapies for mental illness.

Postdoctoral Fellow (Project Researcher)  (Application Deadline: When the position is filled)

We are seeking Postdoctoral Fellow who works in Yazaki-Sugiyama laboratory where focuses on how early stage sensory experience shapes neural circuits in the brain, as well as how this time window is regulated, and guides the later development of higher cognitive functions using the bird song learning model. This laboratory seeks Postdoctoral Fellow who are interested in the following areas of research: ● Tracking early auditory memory for song learning and the neuronal mechanisms underlying critical periods of auditory memory formation and ● Tracking the social effects and social intelligence in song learning.

Postdoctoral Fellow (Full-time Fixed-term Project Researcher)  (Application Deadline: When the position is filled)

We are seeking Postdoctoral Fellow (Project Resesarcher) who is highly motivated to contribute to the field of computational psychiatry, to work on team science project investigating the computational and neural mechanism of psychiatric disorders (primarily schizophrenia) under the framework of reinforcement learning (and utilizing other computational tools including deep learning). This postdoctoral fellow will be expected to develop computational model and behavioral experiments on patients to study the mechanism of psychiatric disorders, inspired by (but not limited to) recent findings on dopamine function (e.g., https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2115-1), with the possibility of extending to fMRI experiments.

February 25, 2021

Postdoctoral Fellow (Project Researcher)   (Application Deadline: When the position is filled)

We are seeking Postdoctoral Fellow (Project Researcher) who will work in Chao Laboratory which is interested in brain networks that underlie predictive coding. The researchers record brain activity in human and animals to examine how the brain networks learn and encode statistical structures in multisensory sequences.

March 17, 2021

Postdoctoral Fellow (Project Researcher)   (Application Deadline: April 16, 2021)

We are seeking Postdoctoral Fellow for Cai Laboratory who is a talented neuroscientist with extensive experience in the areas of advanced fMRI analysis, (such as encoding or decoding models) and the design of experiments using naturalistic tasks and assessing spontaneous thoughts. The project will focus on understanding the contents and dynamics of spontaneous thoughts using fMRI decoding and natural tasks. In the later stage of the project, we also plan to examine the clinical implication of differences in spontaneous thoughts.
