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.
