Summer Opportunity - Yale Cognition Lab

SUMMER OPPORTUNITY AT THE YALE COGNITION AND DEVELOPMENT LAB The Yale Cognition and Development Lab, under the direction of Professor Frank Keil, announces the opportunity for undergraduates to participate in the lab's annual Summer Research Internship.  This 9-week Internship involves hands-on research experience and training in the fields of cognitive psychology and developmental psychology. Responsibility:  The Interns will play key roles in ongoing research projects investigating higher cognition, and will participate in planning and developing several new ventures.  Specific responsibilities will include developing stimuli, scheduling and running subjects, analyzing data, maintaining lab computer equipment, as well as miscellaneous office and administrative duties. Interested Interns will also have the opportunity for hands-on experience with statistical software and web site design. Opportunity:  The Interns in our lab tend to be involved in every phase of the research process--a very rewarding experience for all concerned.  We strive to nurture competence by giving Interns far greater levels of training, responsibility and independence than is customary in most psychology labs. We are also committed to maintaining a relaxed, close-knit team spirit, and a level of excitement and fun about our work. The Internship is a terrific opportunity for motivated self-starters interested in research experience.  It is ideally suited for a person seriously considering graduate school in cognitive or developmental psychology. Focus:  This full-time Internship involves research in cognitive/developmental psychology. Our research interests are fairly broad. At a very general level, we are investigating how knowledge is organized, and in how that organization unfolds in the course of development. Details: The internship is open to all undergraduate students.  The full-time schedule is approximately 35 hours/week, and the internship is 9 weeks long (June 7 - August 6), with a week off for July 4.
