Internships in gender equity and gender tutorials may be full-time or half-time, and have a minimum duration of 6 weeks.
Internships are most common during the summer but can also be taken throughout the year. The current projects are shown elsewhere on this site.
Interns participate fully and receive training in the various facets of the work. The Gender Equity Project (GEP) has the mission of ensuring equity in the
hiring, retention, tenuring, and promotion of men and women in the natural and social sciences, ensuring that they benefit equally from resources, and ensuring
that they are recognized equally for their achievements. We work toward those goals by direct action, the creation of gender tutorials, developing materials to
help women and men become successful in their fields, and conducting research on the characteristics of men and women who receive prizes and awards.
Interns on the project will learn about issues involved in all aspects of gender equity. Via regular laboratory meetings, interns will get a background in
fields like social psychology and organizational change. Interns who work on gender tutorials will develop their skills in story-boarding and web design and
will read and analyze original research articles.
Desirable background includes: coursework or experience in social psychology, gender issues, statistics, cognitive psychology, sociology, web design, or related fields.
