WTRI is Seeking Undergraduate Interns!

21 Sep

Exciting Internship Opportunity

WTRI is a company started by university academics in order to create a venue for applying cognitive science research on decision making and performance to problems in organizations and companies.   The research of WTRI principals had become known in the industry and many clients such as IBM, Siemens, most of the major mining companies and some large pharma companies have taken advantage of their expertise.  We have also published a number of papers in academic journals and books on the topic of the cognitive science of work and business.

WTRI is seeking between 4 to 6 undergraduate interns who would like an opportunity to help propel this company forward while at the same time building up their own resumes with research experience on major client projects and the potential to be a co-author on a research paper in cognitive science or business.  This opportunity would be particularly beneficial to those students who expect to continue their education at the graduate level or who wish to have exposure to actual commercial work with clients.  Preference will be given to cognitive science, economics or business majors.   Quantitative skills or programming experience are a plus.  Experience with Virtual Worlds is a plus.

Compensation is $12-$15 per hour for up to 20 hours a week.  Each intern also receives a certificate showing that the student was selected for a National Science Foundation internship award with the award number and name of the research program.

WTRI is seeking individuals who are mature, inquisitive, reliable, self-directed and find the subjects of cognition and business interesting.   Skills in statistical programs and advanced mathematics or mathematical modeling are a plus.  The company culture is relaxed with a belief in open communications among colleagues so a sense of humor is an advantage.  Interns are treated as key members of the WTRI team, may have opportunities to travel with the research teams and will be taught important research skills and will have the opportunity to interact with clients.

If you have an interest in one of these internship positions contact:
