Lab Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Thompson-Schill Lab is actively committed to working towards equity and justice for all its members and potential members, as well as for those in the larger community. We believe that our team is strongest when its members bring a variety of perspectives and backgrounds to their work (and there’s research to back that up!).
We encourage people of all backgrounds to join our lab, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, culture, religion, ability status, or socioeconomic status. We are committed to ensuring the lab is a safe and positive place to work for all its members. We do not tolerate any harassment or discrimination, no matter what the intentions are behind it. We continually strive to improve, to learn and to do more, and to rigorously examine ourselves and our actions.
We are involved in ongoing activities to make our lab and our community a more just and inclusive place, including:
- Professional development and education
- Revising trainee recruitment practices
- Continued monitoring
We do not currently have any positions open for research specialists, PhD students, or postdocs. However, we encourage anyone who is interested to get in contact to discuss future opportunities or positions that may open soon.
If you are an undergraduate interested in our work, email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about paid positions, independent studies and mentorship, or volunteer work. If you would like to volunteer but need to be paid, please reach out! Even if there are no paid positions available, we can help you find funding opportunities and apply for them.
