Join us at Stanford for an interdisciplinary summer research experience program in the cognitive sciences!
At the Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI), interns will work closely with a faculty, postdoc, or grad student mentor on an original cognitive science research project. They will gain experience developing the project, collecting data, and analyzing the results. In addition to their individual projects, interns will attend weekly mentorship meetings and seminars with such topics as reading a scientific paper, introduction to data analysis, statistics and visualization, and presentation skills. The program will culminate with each intern presenting their work to an interdisciplinary audience.
The topical focus of the program will be on language, learning, computation, and cognition, with an emphasis on giving students the skills they need to complete an independent project. Mentors will be from cognitive science departments across Stanford, including Psychology, Linguistics, Computer Science, and Philosophy.
The program is 8 weeks, from 6/19/17 – 8/11/17, and is primarily intended for rising college juniors and seniors, though we will consider other applicants as well. Applications are due by midnight on March 1st, 2017. We encourage applications from students without prior research experience and from non-research institutions; our best applicants take full advantage of the resources available in their current context. Accepted students will receive a stipend sufficient to cover travel, room, and board.
