Max-Planck-Insti­tut für Bil­dungs­for­schung

The Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Devel­op­ment is ded­ic­ated to the study of human devel­op­ment and edu­ca­tional pro­cesses. Research­ers from diverse dis­cip­lines - includ­ing psy­cho­logy, soci­ology, his­tory, com­puter and inform­a­tion sci­ence, and eco­nom­ics - work together on inter­dis­cip­lin­ary pro­jects.

The research group RHYME (Lifespan Rhythms of Memory and Cog­ni­tion) at the Max Planck Insti­tute
for Human Devel­op­ment in the Cen­ter of Lifespan Psy­cho­logy is search­ing for

Full­time Intern­ship

Working field:

The aim of the RHYME research pro­ject is to under­stand the mech­an­isms that underly age dif­fer­ences
in epis­odic and work­ing memory from child­hood to older adult­hood. In our pro­jects, exper­i­mental and
train­ing stud­ies are com­bined with neuroima­ging meth­ods includ­ing EEG, and struc­tural and
func­tional MRI.

We are look­ing for one reli­able and respons­ible stu­dent of psy­cho­logy, neur­os­cience, or related sub­ject to join the ECHO (Early Child­hood Memor­ies) pro­ject for a min­imum of three months. The ECHO pro­ject looks at memory devel­op­ment between the age of 1.5-3 years of age. Require­ments are nat­ive Ger­man speak­ers, advanced Eng­lish lan­guage skills, and interest in neuro­cog­nit­ive devel­op­mental psy­cho­logy.
We are look­ing for a stu­dent to work on data col­lec­tion and data ana­lysis. Meth­od­o­lo­gical exper­i­ence
(Mat­lab, R, Python, SPSS) is bene­fi­cial.

What we offer:

Intern­ships in our pro­ject enable stu­dents to gain exper­i­ence in the pre­par­a­tion and real­iz­a­tion of EEG
stud­ies and ana­lysis of data in devel­op­mental psy­cho­logy. Interns work on defined tasks that are part
of our ongo­ing research pro­jects and will be super­vised by sci­entific staff.

The reim­burse­ment will be 430 EUR per month.

The earli­est start date is Nov 1, 2022 or later.
