Rockefeller University Grant Proposal Writer in New York, New York
Job Title Grant Proposal Writer
Laboratory / Department Neurogenetics of Language
The ability to speak has allowed our species to pass knowledge between generations, articulate complex ideas, and building societies. Our lab uses song-learning birds and other species as models to study the molecular and genetic mechanisms that underlie vocal learning, including how humans learn spoken language. We are interested in how their brains, and ours, have evolved to produce this complex behavior.
