Erikson Institute

Research Internship

The Erikson Institute of the Austen Riggs Center Summer Research Internship Program.

For a number of years, the Erikson Institute has offered an opportunity for undergraduate students to take part in a summer Research Internship Program. The focus of the internship is on research related to psychodynamic constructs. Start/end dates are negotiable to accommodate the applicant’s scholastic schedule. Weekly hours worked are flexible and can be determined per the applicant's availability. 

Research Interns work on projects with members of Riggs clinical staff and under the overall supervision of the Manager of Institutional Research. Projects may include research and inventory with archival medical materials; literature searches; writing scientific/medical research summaries; and data analysis. Interns may chose to work on several research projects or to commit to a single study. Interns may also be invited to present findings at professional meetings that encourage student involvement. 

What are our Research Interns Saying?

Special Announcement: We will not be hosting an internship program in 2016 and therefore are not accepting applications for research internships for summer 2016. We hope to open up this program again in 2017.
