Language and Cognitive Development Lab 2019 Summer Internship
Prof. Mahesh Srinivasan
The Language and Cognitive Development Lab at UC Berkeley, under the direction of Prof. Mahesh Srinivasan, is accepting applications for their summer internship. The goal of this program is to provide a comprehensive, hands-on research experience to highly motivated students, while making valuable contributions to cognitive science.
Our lab explores how linguistic, cognitive, and social abilities arise during human development. A central goal of our research is exploring how these different aspects of development interact with one another. Interns will work closely with the lab manager, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and each other, and will meet with Professor Srinivasan to discuss their research. Interns will be involved in many facets of the research process, such as: assisting with data collection, working on stimuli creation and preparation of study materials, reading relevant theoretical and empirical papers, recruiting participants, and processing or analyzing data. Interns will also have the opportunity to test participants at preschools or children’s museums in the Bay Area. Lastly, interns will attend weekly lab meetings and reading groups to discuss the theory behind research projects, and will have the opportunity to present on the projects they are assigned during the internship. We hope that interns will come away from these activities with an enriched understanding of language and cognitive development.
This internship will run from June 3rd – August 2nd and requires 30 hours of work per week. We recommend applicants apply for outside funding, but will provide a stipend of $1500 to those who are not able to secure funding.
