Internship Opportunities

Internship positions are available on an unpaid and volunteer basis for undergraduate college students or for recent college graduates. CPSPD internships are a great way to get experience for graduate studies. The primary role of a CPSPD intern is to be a Research Assistant. In this capacity, interns help code and de-identify data to be used in ongoing CPSPD research studies, enter the data into statistical analysis software, and learn to clean and analyze data. Motivated interns may have the opportunity to contribute on manuscripts prepared to submit for publication and submit presentations for conferences. All interns have the opportunity to observe criminal and/or civil forensic evaluations conducted in the CPSPD as their schedules allow. Occasionally there are paid Research Assistant positions and these are advertised, when available.
