Fully funded 10 wk internship in language research
Joshua K Hartshorne is currently accepting applications for summer interns in the Language Learning Lab from the Boston College. The internship will run June 1 to Aug 7. In addition to research experience, interns will build expertise in computer programming and statistics, as well as attend professional development seminars.
This is a funded internship, with interns receiving $12/hr for up to 40 hrs/wk. Interns will work closely with a senior member of the laboratory on a specific project. Current projects include studies pertaining to critical periods, statistical learning, verb argument structure, and the role of social cognition in language. Note that while many of these projects involve working with developmental data, we won’t be doing any in-person kid-testing this summer, so this might not be the right placement for students who primarily want to work directly with children.
As always, underrepresented minorities and first-generation college students are strongly encouraged to apply.
To apply, please fill out this initial application: https://forms.gle/4WDgTtT8Tv7hi7Hr6. The most compelling candidates will be asked to complete a more detailed follow-up application. Applications will be processed on a rolling basis.
