Summer Internship 2019

Call for Applicants

The Mind and Development Lab at Yale University, under the direction of Dr. Paul Bloom, is accepting applications for our annual Summer Internship Program. Our research explores how children and adults understand the physical and social world, including topics such as morality, religion, free will, and the nature of the self. For information about our current research, please see

This internship will provide interns with the opportunity to work with graduate students and postdocs 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 wide range of activities over the course of the internship. Activities may include developing new project ideas, designing new experiments, recruiting participants, running experiments, analyzing data, and presenting results.

The internship runs full-time (40 hours a week) from June 3rd to August 9th, 2019, and application materials are due March 5th, 2019 by midnight EST. It is highly encouraged to apply for outside funding from one’s own university, and we are happy to support these applications. Additionally, there may be up to $2,000 worth of funding available through the lab if funding cannot be achieved through one’s own university. 

Who can apply? The internship is open to all undergraduate students, including those graduating in 2019. It is particularly suited for students considering graduate school in experimental psychology or cognitive science.
