Jobs and Internships

NEW Internship Opportunity: Johns Hopkins University

Looking for for our summer internship program at Johns Hopkins University May 29 – July 31, 2013. The program includes three faculty members in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and brings together 10-13 undergraduates from across the country to work on research concentrated in either Cognitive Development or Vision Sciences. This is a full blown, funded, undergraduate research experience, including meeting, reading groups, and close one-on-one mentoring between faculty, post-docs, PhD students and undergraduate interns. The undergraduate interns interact with students from other universities and often choose to live in Hopkins dormitories during their internship, which are easy to register for. The internship includes social events, camaraderie, plenty of fantastic science, and carries a stipend of up to $1500 (or some students opt to receive course credit instead of stipend). Please help us attract some of your best students to this fantastic opportunity by forwarding this e-mail and the attached application.

Please visit our webpage, the Laboratory for Vision and Cognition, to download the official announcement and an application. Applications are due via email Feb 28.

Internship/Scholarship Opportunity: Noyce Foundation

Are you interested in teaching or working with school-aged kids? If so, you may want to keep in mind the internships and scholarships offered by the Noyce foundation through Vassar.

Each year, Vassar provides funding to talented STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) majors to learn more about careers in STEM-related education.

(1) Summer Internship: $4,000 will be awarded to 6 students to complete science education or research internships this summer. Program mentors will help awardees find placements that match their interests. For example, two summers ago, they gave me funding to develop and implement a science program at a summer camp for kids in my town.

(2) Scholarship: $20,000 per year will be awarded to 14 STEM majors who are going into teaching. This scholarship requires a commitment to teach for two years in a high needs area, but if you want to do that after graduation, this scholarship will allow you to graduate with a lot less debt.

If you are interested, we’ll let you know about our upcoming dinner where you can get more information about the Noyce Scholarship Program (Yay, free dinner!). So, if you’re interested at all, or have any questions, please e-mail me at Also, you can check out the internship and scholarship on the fellowships office website.
