Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program with the Behavior, Information, and Technology lab (BITLab) at Michigan State University
The Behavior, Information, and Technology lab (BITLab) at Michigan State University is hiring up to 2 full-time undergraduate students for a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program this summer. We are looking for motivated students interested in gaining research / internship experience in Human Computer Interaction.
As an interdisciplinary lab, we provide students with the opportunity to work on research projects with the potential to improve our understanding of how technology and people affect each other. The majority of our research projects are team-based and involve both technical computer science and social / behavioral components. Students working in our lab will gain experience working in an interdisciplinary team. Students will also have the opportunity to help guide the research being conducted and the flexibility to design and test their own solutions to problems.
This summer, REU students will participate in a research project about Online Communities: How do people decide whether they should participate in an online community like Reddit, Quora, WebMD, or Patients Like Me? What do they pay attention to? What information do they seek out? In this project, we are trying to understand decision-making about online participation. We hope to develop new ideas about how to build and grow new online communities.
The internships start on May 22, 2017, and run for 10 weeks, 40-hours per week. Pay is in the range of $15-$20, depending on the student's qualifications and experience. Undergraduates who are US citizens or permanent residents enrolled at any 4-year university for the Fall of 2017 are eligible to apply. We plan to start reviewing applications on March 12th, though late applications are welcome -- we'll be reviewing applications until the positions are filled.
To apply, please send a resume, an unofficial copy of your transcript, and a brief statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will begin reviewing applications on March 12th, 2017 and will continue until the positions are filled. The statement of interest should include why you are interested in one of these positions, what you are hoping to do for a career, and how this position will help achieve those goals.
