Summer Internship: University of Delaware Child’s Play Lab

The Child’s Play, Learning and Development Lab, under the direction of Dr. Roberta Golinkoff at the University of Delaware, invites undergraduate students and graduating seniors to apply for an unpaid summer internship! Our laboratory, funded by federal grants, focuses on how children acquire language, develop early mathematical and spatial concepts, and learn through play.

Interns will learn the practical applications of research methods, participant recruitment, data collection, data coding, and data entry. Additionally, we will hold weekly lab meetings where we discuss cutting-edge research in developmental cognition.

This is an ideal way to gain research experience for students thinking of going on in a variety of fields such as psychology, speech pathology, and medicine. While there are no specific requirements, you must like children and be an eager learner and responsible individual! Interested applicants should email the lab manager, Tara Saunders, at tsaund@udel.edu, for the application, or check out our website at www.childsplay.udel.edu for more information.
