open positions

We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive lab culture, and welcome scientists of all genders, races, sexual orientations, and backgrounds. We especially encourage applications from individuals from groups that are typically underrepresented in academia and STEM fields. Our lab is a very supportive place, and we recruit new lab members with the goal of maintaining a nurturing and productive environment.

The lab is not actively recruiting a postdoc at this time. However, we are always interested in working with talented researchers. Please email Leyla ( about potential openings and collaborations.

Graduate students

I am not planning to recruit new PhD students as their primary advisor for Fall 2023, and unlikely to accept new MA students. The Cognitive Science PhD program is highly collaborative, and I'd encourage you to reach out to other faculty members of interest.

Undergraduate Research Assistants

We are committed to mentoring talented undergraduate RAs from a range of backgrounds. Students can complete research for credit or they can apply for summer funding via PURA (due Feb 1) or a KSAS research award (due Feb 15). We commit to working with accepted students to submit their summer funding applications. 

We are seeking an undergraduate RA for spring (and optionally intersession) 2023 to assist with two projects investigating the spatiotemporal dynamics of social processing in the human brain. One of the primary responsibilities will be assisting with EEG data collection. Additional responsibilities may also include helping with the analysis of EEG or human intracranial data. Interested candidates should email Prof Isik ( their resume or CV and/or a brief description of their interest and experience.
