June 1 - July 27, 2018
Faculty at Yale Child Study Center are holding a summer internship for rising junior and senior undergraduate students, spanning all areas of developmental science, including clinical and typical development, and basic and applied research. Interns will be paired with a faculty mentor, based on their research interests and career trajectories, and spend the summer working with their mentor on a relevant research project. The projects will be in a series of tracks, that include neuroscience, developmental, and clinical areas. Interns will have the opportunity to attend lectures and seminars where they are exposed to other areas of developmental science beyond the scope of their lab.
At the end of the summer, interns will present their research project as a conference poster to the staff and students at Yale Child Study Center. Past research areas have included the neuroscience of parenting, adolescent risk-taking, interventions for vulnerable families, and addiction. The career pathways for our interns are generally to masters and PhDs across the US, medical school, or research employment. Many interns have their summer mentors provide letters of recommendation for their next career steps.
