Information on the Northeastern internship program

Northeastern University International Research Internship

Each semester our group hosts one research internship student from the Bachelors program in Linguistics at Northeastern University in Boston, USA. The intern works full time in our lab on ongoing research projects; participates in weekly lab meetings, colloquium talks, and scientific writing seminars; and usually attends at least one research-related conference or colloquium at another university in Germany or a neighboring country. The internship allows students to explore possibilities for graduate study and a future career in research, and also offers them the opportunity to live abroad for six months in an authentic context. The intern receives course credit for the internship through the International Cooperative Education Program, [] part of the Northeastern University Cooperative Education and Career Development Office []
