Gopnik Cognitive Development & Learning Lab at UC Berkeley Summer Internship

I am happy to announce that the Cognitive Development and Learning Lab at UC Berkeley, under the direction of Dr. Alison Gopnik, is now accepting applications for our 2022 summer internship program. Highly motivated undergraduates, graduating seniors, and recent graduates are encouraged to apply. Our lab broadly explores children’s development of causal reasoning and how they learn from and about other people.

The 9-week internship will be from June 1 to July 29th, 2022. Interns will be expected to work 30 hours/week and will be offered a $3,000 stipend. This will be an in-person internship based in Berkeley, California.

Interns will work closely with the lab manager, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and one other. Interns will be involved in many facets of the research process, such as: assisting with data collection, running studies at local schools and museums, working on stimuli creation and preparation of study materials, reading relevant theoretical and empirical papers, recruiting participants, and processing or analyzing data. The goal of this program is to provide a comprehensive, hands-on research experience to students, while making valuable contributions to cognitive science.

Please refer to for more information and application instructions. The application deadline is March 7 at 11:59 pm PST.

Please direct any questions to Emily Rose Reagan at
