Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion:

In the Cohen Lab, we strive to create an inclusive and equitable environment for every one of our members (undergraduate research assistants, research staff, graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty, and collaborators). Further, we recognize the unique position we serve as ambassadors for the scientific community in our interactions with the participants and families who generously give their time and effort for our research. We acknowledge and respect the originality and contributions that a diverse research team is uniquely poised to offer. To this end, we are committed to increasing the representation of diverse backgrounds in our team and in the broader cognitive and developmental neuroscience communities.

As such, we welcome applications from individuals interested in joining the lab regardless of their background (including but not limited to age, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, nationality, disability, socioeconomic status). We strongly encourage applications particularly from members of these and other underrepresented and historically disadvantaged groups. We firmly believe that supporting the academic and non-academic journey of all trainees regardless of their background will benefit the growth of the individual, as well as advance the broader scientific community.
