Applications are open for Stanford’s 5th CSLI Undergraduate Summer Internship Program! Undergraduate students interested in research are encouraged to apply. For more information and an application form, see https://www-csli.stanford.edu/csli-summer-internship-program-2018. A blurb about the program is given below.
***** CSLI SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM 2018 *****
Join us at Stanford for an interdisciplinary summer research experience program in the cognitive sciences!
At the Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI), interns will 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 weekly mentorship meetings and seminars with such topics as reading a scientific paper, introduction to data analysis, statistics and visualization, and presentation skills. The program will culminate with each intern presenting their work to an interdisciplinary audience.
Accepted students will receive on-campus housing and a stipend to cover food, travel, and other expenses.
The topical focus of the program will be on language, learning, computation, and cognition, with an emphasis on giving students the skills they need to complete an independent project. Mentors will be from cognitive science departments across Stanford, including Psychology, Linguistics, Computer Science, Management Science & Engineering, and Philosophy.
The program is 8 weeks, from June 25 to August 17, 2018, and is primarily intended for rising college Juniors and Seniors, though we will consider other applicants as well. Applications are due by midnight on February 16, 2018.
One goal of the internship is to increase the diversity of the higher education pipeline, and we therefore especially encourage applicants who come from groups that are historically underrepresented in research careers, such as Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic, Native American, Pacific Islander, and first-generation college students. We also welcome applications from students without prior research experience and from non-research institutions.
The CSLI Internship Program is supported in part by the NSF’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program (award #1659585).
