Internship Description: 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, 2012 and go through August 9, 2012. 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.
