Ideally, you will be a part of our program for the duration of your undergraduate study so that you can grow your skills as a researcher. Once you have mastered the basic skills of the INCternship, you will be given additional responsibilities such as: assisting with the IRB application process, running participants through research protocols, managing younger INCterns, and ultimately doing your own analyses on research data.
If you stay with the program for 2-3 years, you can expect to gain the skills you will need to excel in graduate school, or in a professional research assistant position after graduation. You can also expect your hours and pay to go up as you acquire more skills.
