Interested in Language or Psychology Research?
Want to know more about what's involved?
The Deafness Cognition and Language (DCAL) Research Centre at University College London is looking for volunteer interns.
As an intern, you can learn first hand what is involved in conducting research in the areas of linguistics, psycholinguistics and language development in the context of deafness and sign language. You will gain valuable experience for a possible future (or current) research degree in these and/or related areas.
Preference will be given to those who have a degree (or are studying/planning
to study for a degree) in linguistics, psychology or related areas. Deaf
applicants are particularly welcome. Those with a background or interest in
sign language and/or sign language interpreting are also welcome.
Knowledge of some British Sign Language (BSL) is required (in some cases, further BSL training may be provided).
The internship may be full-time (minimum 2 weeks) or part-time (minimum 3
months), and hours are flexible.
International applicants- please note that due to changes in the UKJ home office restrictions, international interns can only come to DCAL on an internship if they are a student at a University and only if they receive funding (we cannot accept self-funded students) or if they are working as an academic at a University or similar institution. Please can you ensure you meet these criteria before filling out an intern application.
You must be 18 or older to apply.
To apply, fill in the DCAL Intern
