Open position for Postdoctoral Fellow (Project Researcher) (Tsuji Laboratory)

The IRCN Babylab (Tsuji lab) at University of Tokyo is seeking a postdoctoral candidate for the transdisciplinary project “Tracking developing sensitivity to dyadic interactions” in collaboration with the Softbank Beyond AI Institute and Tom Froese (Embodied Cognitive Science unit, OIST). The goal of this project is to develop a gaze-based minimal virtual reality paradigm to identify infants’ sensitivity to real-time, gaze-mediated dyadic interactions. The successful candidate will be involved in developing, conducting, and analyzing dual eye-tracking experiments in human infants and adults. Physiological measures like heart rate will also be collected. Depending on the candidate’s qualifications, concurrent computational modeling work is also possible. The candidate will be located in Tokyo and primarily supervised by Dr. Tsuji, co-supervised by Dr. Froese.
