Join the Lab

We are looking for talented graduate students and postdocs to join our group in the Biology Department at Tufts University. We combine electrophysiology, pharmacology, behavioral manipulations, and computational approaches to investigate the interplay between motor production, sensory feedback, and neural plasticity in vocal learning in songbirds.


Applicants should have a bachelor’s degree (or higher) in biology, physics, cognitive science, engineering or another technical field and want to apply your knowledge to understanding how neural circuits generate behavior and change with experience. Qualifications include dedication, creativity, and an ability to think and work independently. Experience with computer programming (Matlab, C+, and Labview) and/or electronics are a plus. If interested, please contact Mimi Kao at mimi.kao@tufts.edu.
