Fall 2024

We are accepting applicants from potential graduate students to join the lab in Fall 2024! Interested students may apply through the Behavioral and Systems Neuroscience program within the Department of Psychology

We are looking for students who are interested in primate (human, monkey, and ape) behavior, cognition, and neuroscience, with a particular focus on understanding the evolutionary origins of language. Our research involves computerized cognitive testing and neuroimaging to compare across species.


Experience working with nonhuman animals in an experimental setting is desired, but not a requirement. As we use computerized testing, coding abilities, or a willingness to learn, are necessary. Students with experience in using neuroimaging techniques (particularly fMRI), and an interest in conducting cross-species fMRI experiments are strongly encouraged to apply. 

Applications should be made through Emory University’s Laney Graduate School admissions portal.

If you are interested in applying, please feel free to contact me, or current graduate students in the lab!
