Fall 2023

We are accepting applicants from potential graduate students to join the lab in Fall 2023! 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!


We will soon be recruiting a full time research assistant to support our primate work. The position would be ideally suited to recent graduates, particularly in Psychology or Neuroscience. Experience working with animals, and particularly nonhuman primates is highly desirable. Strong problem solving skills, and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team are also necessary. Programming experience would also be very valuable. 

For more information, please contact us!
