University of California, Berkeley
Social Origins Lab Summer Internship

The Social Origins Lab at UC Berkeley is now accepting applications for their summer research internship. The goal of this internship is to provide highly motivated and curious-minded students with the opportunity to gain hands-on research experience in the field of developmental psychology. 

Under the direction of Dr. Jan Engelmann, the lab explores how social and cognitive abilities arise and interact with one another in human development and across species and cultures. In doing so, our research studies primarily involve working with children of various age ranges.  The summer intern will work closely with graduate students and the lab manager to facilitate the research process. Responsibilities for the intern will include running research studies with young children, helping to recruit participants, collecting and coding video data, and assisting with administrative tasks. 

Tentative dates for the internship are June 1 – July 23, with an expected commitment of 30 hours/week.
