MU-ARTSS Summer Intern
The Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Missouri (MU) hosts a diverse cadre of psychologists dedicated to research into the etiology and course of alcoholism and related disorders. MU-ARTSS professors represent a wide array of expertise in the science of alcohol and addiction including genetics, personality, psychopathology, social and affective neuroscience, and social network analysis. Students participating in the MU-ARTSS program are part of the larger MU Summer Undergraduate Research Program (MU-SURP) which hosts approximately 100 students from universities and colleges across the nation every year. All students participating in the program develop a research abstract and create a poster to present at the Summer MU Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievements Forum.
The MU-ARTSS program is structured into a week-long didactic program (May 31-June 6, 2024) providing an intensive introduction to alcohol research followed by an 8-week research internship (June 7-July 26, 2024) in the lab of a MU-ARTSS professor. The program is set up to provide an independent learning experience and offer the intern an opportunity to get a sense of a ‘grad school’ working environment. The internship is full-time with a stipend of $4,800. In addition, the University of Missouri will be providing room and board at no cost to the intern. However, travel costs are not covered and are the responsibility of the intern. Interns will receive 1 hour of academic credit (course title: Special Problems in Psychology, Psych 2950) from the University of Missouri which is paid for by the program. If you would like to have your credit transferred to your academic institution, some educational institutions require prior approval before the start of an internship if students wish to count the credit hour towards their degree. Applicants should check with their institution regarding any such requirements before accepting an internship position.
