***** CSLI SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM 2014 *****
Join us at Stanford for a research-based summer program in the cognitive sciences, hosted by the Center for the Study of Language and Information!
In the CSLI program, 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 a weekly seminar with such topics as reading a scientific paper, introduction to the R data analysis platform, statistics and visualization, and presentation skills. The program will culminate with each intern presenting their work to an interdisciplinary audience.
The topical focus of the program will be on language, learning, computation, and cognition, with an emphasis on giving students the technical skills they need to complete an independent project. Mentors will be from cognitive science departments across Stanford including Michael Bernstein (CS), Michael Frank (Psych), Noah Goodman (Psych), Dan Lassiter (Ling), Chris Potts (Ling), and Meghan Sumner (Ling).
The program is 9 weeks, from 6/16/14 – 8/15/14, and is intended for rising college Juniors and Seniors. Applications are due by 5pm on Monday, March 17th, 2014. For more information and an application form, see http://www-csli.stanford.edu/csli-summer-internship-program-2014
