Yale is offering this sweet 10 week summer internship for undergraduates from other institutions. The internship’s purpose is to give undergrads research training in comparative (monkeys!) and developmental (babies!) psychology in an amazing environment with world-renowned researchers, something interns may not be able to have otherwise.
Eight spots are available with a stipend (yay money!) plaus travel here to Yale (which means you get to see me!). Applications are due March 22nd. Here is the website for more information: http://www.yale.edu/caplab/internship/Home.html
If you or anyone you know is interested in research in psychology, this is a great way to learn a whole lot. Let me know if you (or that “anyone you know person”) want to apply.
word up, over, and out,
Hey April! Thanks so much for sending this on to all of us….I am very interested in applying for this, and intend to submit an application. Is this part of a project that you’ve been working on? If I remember correctly from a Jack Kent Cooke dinner from years back, you were over in Scotland doing similar research on primates and cognition? I nearly had a job at Harvard working with Marlene Cohen, studying the neural bases of decision making in rhesus-macaques, so this is right up my alley.
Thanks again, and by the way—how have you been?!
Re: RE: Undergraduate Research Opportunity
Hey Sam, So good to hear from you, and so good to hear you’re on the Good Ship Science ;) You have a good memory; I was indeed in Scotland (and part-time in France) working on primate social cognition. I finished up my PhD (some may call me Dr April Ruiz) and am now employed at Yale as a postdoctoral associate. The internship isn’t directly related to my current research (right now I am studying social cognition in rhesus macaques on the island of Cayo Santiago in Puerto Rico), but you will certainly see me around if you get the internship! Tell me a bit more about what you’ve been doing with yourself (related and unrelated to science). If you’ll definitely put in an application I will put in a good word for you :) cheers april ——————————
