Yale Mind and Development Lab Summer Internship Program

The Yale Mind and Development Lab, under the direction of Dr. Paul Bloom, is accepting applications for our annual Summer Internship Program. Our research explores how children and adults understand the physical and social world, including topics such as morality, religion, free will, and the nature of the self. For more information, please see http://www.yale.edu/minddevlab/people.html.


This internship will provide interns with the opportunity to work with graduate students on both ongoing and new studies. Because projects are at various stages of completion (from pre-design to post-data collection), interns will be able to be involved with a wide range of activities over the course of the internship. Activities may include developing new project ideas, designing new experiments, recruiting participants, running experiments, analyzing data, and presenting results.


The internship runs full-time from June 1 to July 31, 2015, and application materials are due March 15, 2015.


Who can apply? The internship is open to all undergraduate students, including those graduating in 2015. It is particularly suited for students considering graduate school in experimental psychology or cognitive science.
