Each summer, the Laboratory for Developmental Studies at Harvard University
offers a limited number of internships for college undergraduates, under the
supervision of Dr. Susan Carey and Dr. Jesse Snedeker. Interns will gain
experience with current techniques for investigating conceptual and language
development in infants and children.
The internship will start on June 3, 2013 and go through August 9, 2013.
This is a full-time research position and interns are expected to be
available from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday. A stipend of $1500 may be
awarded for a full time commitment, but applicants are encouraged to apply
for funding from external sources.
Because of the nature of the internship, it is essential that interns be
mature, articulate, and comfortable with parents and children. They should
also be highly organized and reliable. Desirable background experience would
include the following: coursework in developmental or experimental
psychology or linguistics, basic computer skills and previous
research and/or experience with children.
