Emotion, Health and Psychophysiology Lab at UC San Francisco

We are currently accepting applications for the summer internship program at the Emotion, Health and Psychophysiology Lab at UC San Francisco under the direction of Wendy Berry Mendes. We offer a nine-week internship program (June 15 – August 14, 2015) for undergraduates who are interested in conducting research at the intersection of social psychology, emotion, psychophysiology, and neuroendocrinology. Interns are involved in conducting studies, acquiring autonomic and neuroendocrine data, editing and scoring physiological responses, and attending weekly tutorials and lab meetings. This internship is ideal for those students interested in pursuing a graduate degree in psychology or medicine. Most interns receive funding or course credit from their own university, but there are a few stipends available.

If you have a student or you are interested in applying to be a summer intern please email your resume/vita to by March 20th.  Selected interns will be notified by April 17th and stipend awardees will be notified soon after.


APA Summer Science Fellowship

Applications are due February 9th!!!

From the APA website:

An expenses-paid, intensive summer training program, the SSF places up to 12 talented students in the psychology laboratories of some of the most outstanding researchers in the Washington, D.C., area. The lab experience will be six weeks in length. The SSF program gives students an opportunity to explore the intellectual, personal and social processes of scientific inquiry and to experience cutting-edge psychological research through hands-on laboratory activities. SSF offers promising students the opportunity to equip themselves with skills essential to succeed in graduate school, and gives students who plan to pursue advanced degrees in psychological science the opportunity to be mentored by nationally known faculty.

(Side note from Dr. Ploran: I did my postdoctoral fellowship at George Mason and helped mentor two years’ worth of fellows. The program seems really great and the D.C. area is a lot of fun!)
