Come and join Prof. Evie Vergauwe’s Working Memory, Cognition, and Development lab!
When you do an intership in our lab, you can get the opportunity to work closely with children or adults and to discover different stages of research. Not only would you participate in the ongoing research, but we can also involve you in the process of making research more open and reproducible, for example, by using the Open Science Framework (https://osf.io/) to share data and materials.
Examples of past internship research questions:
Examples of Tasks
If you have any questions or you would like to apply, contact Evie.Vergauwe@unige.ch. For applications, please enclose your CV, last PV results, and a motivation letter.
During this proposed internship, you will be involved in an ongoing research project in the lab. Often, it is an international collaboration proposed by the Psychological Science Accelerator. The aim of the proposed internships is for you to become familiar with "open science" practices (e.g., replication studies, preregistration, open science framework, and large-scale, international collaborations). For more info: contact Evie Vergauwe and/or firstname.lastname@example.org.
