UC Berkeley Language and Cognitive Development Lab 2017 Summer Internship
Prof. Mahesh Srinivasan
The Language and Cognitive Development Lab at UC Berkeley, under the direction of Prof. Mahesh Srinivasan, is now accepting applications for their summer internship. The goal of this program is to provide a comprehensive, hands-on research experience to highly motivated students interested in language and the cognitive sciences.
Our lab explores how linguistic, cognitive, and social development interact in early childhood. Interns will work closely with the professor, lab coordinator, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and each other. Interns will be involved in many facets of the research process, including reading relevant theoretical and empirical papers, designing experiments, creating stimuli, recruiting participants, conducting studies, and synthesizing and analyzing data. Interns will have the opportunity to test participants at preschools and/or children’s museums in the Bay Area. Lastly, interns will attend weekly lab meetings and reading groups to discuss the theory behind research studies, and will have the opportunity to present on the projects they are assigned at the beginning and end of the internship. We hope that interns will come away from these activities with an enriched understanding of language and cognitive development.
This internship is unpaid and will run from June 5th – August 4th and requires a minimum of 30 hours of work per week. Please read more about applying on our website and submit all application materials (found on our website) by March 1st at 8:00 AM PST.
