Summer Internship: Temple University Infant & Child Lab

The Temple Infant & Child Lab is offering summer internships to bright, energetic students who are eager to peer into the world of child development. Directed by Professors Nora Newcombe and Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, the lab conducts both theoretical and applied research on language acquisition, spatial learning, memory development, play, and the arts in children ages 5 months to 9 years.

Summer interns will receive hands-on experience in every step of the research process. Each intern will also be paired with graduate student or post-doctoral fellow mentors who will serve as a resource for questions about their areas of research and graduate school. The internship is unpaid and will take place over 8 weeks during the summer of 2017.

Duties may include:

  • Recruiting and scheduling lab participants
  • Assisting with stimuli design and creation
  • Conducting studies with children in the lab or in local preschools
