This Lab Welcomes Everyone
The ZoMBiE Lab at UNCW is committed to creating an environment where everyone, regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, age, nationality, religion, immigration status, and socio-economic background, is included and respected. We firmly believe our diversity is our greatest asset and leads to scientific innovation, thought-provoking discussions, variable skill sets, and enhanced cultural insights. All students are welcome here and discrimination, hatefulness, and disrespect will not be tolerated.
Racial justice and support for marginalized communities cannot be separated from the practice of science. We believe that science is real, that love is love, that Black Lives Matter, that feminism is for everyone, that immigrants are welcome and that shark brains are pretty much the coolest thing in the world to study.
We pledge to appreciate our lab member’s perspectives, experiences, approaches, and ideas to create a safe learning space. As we will no doubt stumble, we will hold ourselves and each other accountable and learn from our mistakes, so that we can uphold our inclusivity and diversity pledge.
If you agree with all of the above, the ZoMBiE Lab sounds like it could be the right place for you. Read more on our Opportunities page to see how you can join us on our scientific adventures!
