Summer Internships for 2014

The SSP Summer Internship Program allows declared Symbolic Systems majors who will be continuing their undergraduate study to work as research assistants on projects defined by Symbolic Systems faculty. The Internship Program is made possible through a combination of external research grants to faculty and a Departmental Grant to the Symbolic Systems Program from the Vice Provost for Undergradaute Education (VPUE). Internships are advertised to students and students post their descriptions securely on this website each winter in a decentralized process we call "Match Madness".

The standard period for 10 week summer internships this year will be June 23-August 29, 2014 (40 hours/week). In addition to their project duties, SSP summer interns this year will be expected to:

  • Attend special events for interns during the summer.
  • Participate in a student poster session at the end of the summer, and give a 5-minute oral presentation at the Symbolic Systems Forum in the early fall.
  • Submit evaluations to VPUE by the deadline at the end of the summer.

Some internships may also include part-time "pre-internships" during the spring for interns and their faculty supervisors who want to get an early start working together.

STUDENTS ONLY

If you are interested in being considered for an internship (and will not have graduated or fulfilled the requirements for your undergraduate degree at the end of this Spring Quarter), you should post a prospective intern profile on this website before Feb. 11th.

Log in under the "Deme account" option (NOTE: Webauth will not work). Then click here to create your internship profile. NB: You need to create a new item for your resume this year through this link, even if you uploaded a resume in a previous year. You can paste the text from a previous resume into this new item. Previous years' resumes you have posted can be viewed and copy-pasted by going to Account:>My Account and then to Metadata:>Related Items>Items Created to find these previous postings. You must, however, create a new resume for this year using the link above for it to display correctly on Feb. 11.

Formatting and posting tips:

  • When editing text in a resume/profile on this site, you can use Shift-Enter to get a linebreak without a paragraph element. This will make formatting cleaner for your reader because it will usually be rendered without a blank line between lines.
  • The title of your posting will ignore what you type in that field the first time you save it, and will instead default to a generic title. To post with a specific title, just edit it after it is created and re-save. (This is a bug and it will be corrected in the new version of our software, following database migration.)

Cognate Departmental Internship Programs Open to Symbolic Systems Undergraduates:

  • If you are interested in working with Computer Science Department researchers, you may also be hired through the CS Department's CURIS program (application deadline: Monday, February 10, 2014). SSP students are eligible to apply for either program, although priority for CS Department summer internships is given to CS majors. CS Department faculty who are SSP-affiliated may offer internships under either program.
  • The Linguistics Department sponsors summer research internships for undergraduates with Linguistics Dept. faculty. Symbolic Systems students are eligible to apply, but Linguistics undergraduates have priority. Available internships will be posted on the Linguistics Dept. website in late February, 2014. Linguistics faculty who are affiliated with Symbolic Systems may offer internships under either program.


FACULTY ONLY

If you are interested in sponsoring an internship, you should post an internship description on this website before Feb. 11th. If you are offering multiple internships, you should post a separate description for each one.

Log in under the "Deme account" option (Webauth will not work), then click here to create your internship descriptions. (NOTE: Previous years' internships you have posted can be viewed and copy-pasted by going to Account:>My Account and then to Metadata:>Related Items>Items Created to find these previous postings. You must, however, create a new internship description for this year using the link above for it to display correctly on Feb. 11.)

Beginning Feb. 11th, click here to see the profiles that students have submitted.

FACULTY AND STUDENTS

Beginning Feb. 11th, click here to see the descriptions that faculty have posted (scroll down and click the "View all" link below the listings to see a compressed list of internships on one page). Pairings between students and faculty are left to the initiative of both groups. If you are a student and see a project description that interests you, you should contact the sponsoring faculty/researchers. Faculty, likewise, are encouraged to contact students whose interests and qualifications match the internships they are offering. Check back after the first visibility date, as new internships may have been added in the meantime.
