A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Neuroscience Center, LSU School of Medicine. Our laboratory studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying speech and language development and related neurodevelopmental disorders such as autisms using songbirds as a model. In particular, we study neural circuit development, sensitive period plasticity, and vocal learning in zebra finches using a multidisciplinary approach. Current projects include investigating gene and epigenetic regulation of dendritic and synaptic development, neurogenesis, and vocal learning behavior.
