Equality and Diversity
“Here at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit our principal and strongest commitment is to excellence in all our activities. This can only be achieved if we ensure fairness of opportunity for all our existing staff and students, and also for everyone who wishes to join us. We ensure that this is achieved through robust and transparent procedures, flexible working practices, formal and informal support at all career points, and through celebrating and rewarding achievements. The result, we hope, is that the Unit and the individuals who work here fulfil their true potential for conducting and supporting ground-breaking cognitive and clinical neuroscience.”
