Yale Mind and Development Lab

The Yale Mind and Development Lab, under the direction of Dr. Paul Bloom, is accepting applications for its annual Summer Internship Program. This internship will provide interns with the opportunity to work with graduate students on both ongoing and new studies. Because projects are at various stages of completion (from pre-design to post-data collection), interns will be able to be involved with a wider range of activities on larger-scale projects than would normally be the case for a summer internship. Activities may include developing new project ideas, designing new experiments, recruiting participants, running experiments, analyzing data, and presenting results. In addition to collaboration with individual graduate students and work on specific projects, weekly lab meetings will give interns a chance to present their own work for feedback and provide feedback to others. We will also discuss current papers being published that relate to the lab's projects. The internship runs from June 7th to August 6th, 2010, and will involve a minimum of 20 hours a week. Who can apply? The internship is open to all undergraduate students. It is particularly suited for students considering graduate school in experimental psychology or cognitive science. How can I apply? All interested applicants are encouraged to download an application form at http://www.yale.edu/minddevlab/summer.html.
