Summer Research Internship Program for Advanced Undergraduates
The Family Institute at Northwestern University sponsors an eight-week summer volunteer research internship program for advanced undergraduates who are interested in learning more about a career in clinical research and intervention with families. The program is coordinated by the research staff at The Family Institute at Northwestern University and is designed to give students broad exposure to a clinical and research environment.
Twenty-five hours per week will be devoted to a research assistantship on a study currently being conducted at The Family Institute. Approximately five hours per week will be spent in educational seminars, including research team meetings, professional development seminars and research program seminars. Interns will work with the managers of their studies to set their weekly schedules.
Although the internship is unpaid, it offers students a chance to learn more about clinical and research activities. Please note that we are seeking candidates who have completed at least their second (sophomore) year of undergraduate education by the time the internship begins.
