Yale University Summer Intern
Summer Intern RAs will play key roles in ongoing research projects investigating higher cognition, and will participate in planning and developing several new ventures. Specific responsibilities will include brainstorming theories, developing new studies, expanding current studies, developing stimuli, recruiting, scheduling and running subjects, analyzing data, and presenting results. Interested RAs will also have the opportunity for hands-on experience with statistical software, web site design, and eye tracking equipment.
The RAs in our lab tend to be involved in every phase of the research process -- a very rewarding experience for all concerned. We strive to nurture competence by giving RAs far greater levels of training, responsibility and independence than is customary in most psychology labs. We are also committed to maintaining a relaxed, close-knit team spirit, and a level of excitement and fun about our work. The RA position is a terrific opportunity for motivated self-starters interested in research experience. It is ideally suited for a person seriously considering graduate school in cognitive or developmental psychology.
This Full-time Internship involves research in cognitive/developmental psychology. Our research interests are fairly broad, but most current projects focus on concepts and categories. At a very general level, we are investigating how knowledge is organized, and how that organization unfolds in the course of development. We are also starting some projects that look at how we understand causal systems.
