Join us at Stanford for an interdisciplinary summer research experience
program in the cognitive sciences and HCI!

At the Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI), 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 weekly
mentorship meetings and seminars with such topics as reading a scientific
paper, introduction to data analysis, 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 skills
they need to complete an independent project. Mentors will be from
cognitive science departments across Stanford, including Psychology,
Linguistics, Computer Science, and Philosophy.

The program is 8 weeks, from 6/20/15 - 8/12/15, and is primarily intended
for rising college Juniors and Seniors, though we will consider other
applicants as well. Applications are due by midnight on Sunday, February
28th, 2015. We encourage applications from students without prior research
experience and from non-research institutions. Accepted students will
receive a stipend sufficient to cover travel, room, and board.
