Boston College Summer Internship

Boston College Infant and Child Cognition Lab – Summer 2018 Internship

Dr. Sara Cordes’ Infant and Child Cognition Lab, located on the main campus of Boston College, is looking for motivated and reliable undergraduates interested in participating in a summer research internship in developmental psychology. This is a great opportunity for students looking to gain valuable research experience in the field of cognitive development. Research in the lab focuses on how infants, children, and adults track number and other quantities, as well as how these abilities relate to prosocial behavior in preschoolers and to formal mathematics performance in school-aged children (

This internship is open to any current undergraduate student, and is best suited for students who wish to pursue graduate study in psychology. Students from primarily undergraduate and liberal arts institutions are strongly encouraged to apply. Each intern will have a primary research project to focus on, gaining valuable experience in running studies in the lab and at local museums and schools, working with infants and /or children, subject recruitment, data coding and analysis, and much more. Interns will also attend lab meetings where we discuss the theories behind our studies, our current projects, and relevant research findings from other labs.

The 10-week summer internship will involve a commitment of approximately 35 hours per week from June 4th to August 17th, 2018 (start and end dates are flexible). Interns will either receive funding or course credit.

To apply, please send your current CV, official or unofficial transcript, and a cover letter describing your interests and experiences to Raychel Gordon ( with the subject line: BC ICCL Summer Internship Application, and then complete the online application here.
