Join The Lab
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.
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 are now accepting applications for undergraduate research assistants for the BrainMAP study!
UPDATE: The application now will close Sunday, January 29 at 11:59 pm. Interviews will begin the week of February 6. Applicants should expect to hear from us the week of February 27.
Our volunteer undergraduate research assistant application can be found here. The application is now open. 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.
If you have any questions regarding applications, please contact Ellie Birdsong at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We held info sessions for interested students on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at 12:30 and 4 pm. You can watch the recording of our 12:30 session below!
