Description:
The Language and Cognitive Development Lab at UC Berkeley, under the direction of Dr. Mahesh Srinivasan, is now accepting applications for our summer internship program. Highly motivated undergraduates, graduating seniors, and recent graduates are encouraged to apply. Our lab explores how linguistic, cognitive, and social abilities arise during human development and a central goal of our research is exploring how these different aspects of development interact with one another.

The internship runs for 9-weeks. Interns will be expected to work 30 hours/week and will be offered a $3,375 stipend. Depending on public health conditions, this internship may be virtual or onsite; an announcement will be made closer to the start date.

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, running studies at local schools and museums, working on stimuli creation and preparation of study materials, reading relevant theoretical and empirical papers, recruiting participants, and processing or analyzing data. The goal of this program is to provide a comprehensive, hands-on research experience to students, while making valuable contributions to cognitive science.
