All members of the Logan Lab acknowledge that human diversity is critical for the proper development and progress of the scientific enterprise. Diverse perspectives and backgrounds enhance creativity and scientific discovery in important ways. More fundamentally, exposure to diverse perspectives and backgrounds helps us grow as individuals, improves our wellbeing, and enables us to realize our full potential. As such, we do not discriminate based on race, gender, ethnic background, sexual orientation, nationality, economic background, or political orientation. We embrace diversity in all of its forms, we value it, and we will continue to encourage new students and postdocs from all backgrounds to join our research group.
Lab Code of Conduct
The health of every work environment depends on all individuals in that environment being completely free from harassment. We take this principle very seriously in the Logan Lab. Abusive behavior of any kind is simply not tolerated. This includes (but is not limited to) both overt and subtle forms of sexual harassment, racism, sexism, and homophobia. Members of the Logan Lab (including the PI, of course) are required to treat each other with kindness and respect, even when having a disagreement. While we recognize that doing science can sometimes be stressful, and disagreements and conflicts will inevitably arise, this is never an excuse to mistreat a fellow lab member. We work every day to actively maintain this aspect of our culture so that every member of our research group feels safe to voice their opinion and be who they are without fear of intimidation, humiliation, reprisal, or insult. We work through any conflicts we my have as adults who are on the same team and ultimately working towards similar goals. Students or postdocs who repeatedly mistreat others or make them feel unsafe will be permanently expelled from the lab if they cannot improve their behavior.
