Stanford CSLI 2017 Summer Internship Application
Ends on March 1, 2017
In the Stanford CSLI Internship program, interns 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.
To be eligible, you must be a documented U.S. citizen, a permanent resident in possession of an alien registration card (I-555), or an international student enrolled in a U.S. undergraduate institution.
The program is intended for rising college Juniors and Seniors from outside Stanford University, but we will consider all applicants for the program.
The program aims to expand undergraduate access to research, and as such past research experience is NOT a prerequisite. Applications will be evaluated on the basis of academic foundations that lead to successful research experience, whether or not applicants have had such experience already.
The program is 8 weeks, from 6/19/2017 – 8/11/2017. Students should plan to be available for the entirety of the summer program in order to attend trainings at the beginning of the program and final presentations at the end.
The internship should be considered a full-time position. In general, interns are expected to be in the lab 40 hours/week, from 9AM – 5PM, Monday – Friday.
This application will close at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time on 3/1. This means that All APPLICATIONS must be submitted by that time.
Reference letters can be submitted after the application closes. We will accept reference letters until 3/8.
