Internship Location: Stanford, California, USA
Minimum Education Level: BA
Description:
Duties and Responsibilities:
Interns will work closely with a faculty, postdoc, or grad student mentor on
an original cognitive science research project. They will gain experience
developing the project, collecting data, and analyzing the results. In
addition to their individual projects, interns will attend a weekly seminar
with such topics as reading a scientific paper, introduction to the R data
analysis platform, statistics and visualization, and presentation skills. The
program will culminate with each intern presenting their work to an
interdisciplinary audience.

The topical focus of the program will be on language, learning, computation,
and cognition, with an emphasis on giving students the technical skills they
need to complete an independent project. Mentors will be from different
departments across Stanford including the following PIs and labs (see links to
learn more about the research conducted in these labs):
