Looking for PhD Students in Neurobiology of Vocal Learning – Brain Institute, Natal, Brazil

Por - diciembre 21, 2016

We are seeking a highly motivated doctorate candidate interested in working on the neurobiology of vocal learning in birds.  My lab utilizes genetic techniques to study the biological basis of song-learning and to manipulate brain circuits that control singing behavior. For this we use state-of- the-art technologies such as genome editing (CRISPR), transgenesis, and live-brain imaging using mini-scopes. Experience and interest in molecular neuroscience, cell culture, and animal behavior are preferred. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Prof o Tarciso Velho PhD at velhot@neuro.ufrn.br or velhot@caltech.edu.
