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.

 

Graduate Students:

We are currently accepting graduate students for next fall. Please apply directly through the Graduate School. See here for more information.

 

Undergraduate Research Assistants:

We not are currently accepting applications for undergraduate research assistants. If you are interested in a position, check back next summer in July-August to see if we are accepting applications.

Our volunteer undergraduate research assistant application can be found here. The application is now closed. Please note, you must be logged into Office 365 with your UNC account to complete the form. 

If you are interested in working in the lab and have work-study funding, please apply through JobX (the work-study portal). Work-study and volunteer applications will be given the same consideration. We do not currently have an open work-study position.
