Harvard Lab for Developmental Studies 2019 Summer Internship with
Dr. Susan Carey and Dr. Jesse Snedeker
The Harvard Lab for Developmental Studies invites undergraduate students and graduating seniors to apply for our 2019 summer internship program under the direction of Dr. Susan Carey and Dr. Jesse Snedeker. Our research asks how infants can go from their initial conceptual and linguistic state to the vast, abstract, and uniquely human adult state. Specific projects focus on causality, kind representations, executive function and conceptual change, the development and acquisition of language, and the relationship between syntactic and semantic representations of language.
Interns will be participating in all aspects of our research programs. Desirable background includes the following: coursework in developmental or cognitive psychology or linguistics, previous research involvement, and experience with children. Intellectual curiosity, attention to detail, responsibility, initiative, and the ability to work in teams and with families are necessary qualities.
The internship will start on 6/10/2019 and runs through 8/16/2019. A commitment to the entire duration is required. Applicants are encouraged to apply for outside funding, but a stipend of $1500 will be awarded to any interns who lack this funding.
