For Students


Our laboratory is recruiting enthusiastic master’s and doctoral students and company scientists who are willing to work with us. We welcome students from a wide range of backgrounds, such as healthcare, biology, engineering, linguistics, and psychology. Our projects range from basic to applied: basic research relates to human language comprehension, and applied studies are oriented towards practical applications. The starting point of your research at our laboratory will be where your particular interests and our research directions meet. So far, several international students including research students and internship students have been joining our laboratory.

You will gain a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment when you make new findings. Such joy will multiply when shared among colleagues, friends, and mentors. We believe it is important to create a friendly atmosphere where you can enjoy research activities. If you are interested in joining us, please feel free to contact us (!
