UX Research Summer Internship

Summer Interns in UX Research at Bold Insight will gain experience working next to and learning from some of the most creative and insightful UX researchers in the field. You will do a variety of tasks supporting our skyrocketing UX research business: helping our researchers prepare for the studies, doing data analysis, designing and executing internal studies, and desk research.

You won’t be getting coffee or making copies, we’ll make it worth your while.  You must be a hard worker and not a whiner or complainer.  We work smart, have fun and want people with a positive attitude.

At Bold Insight we conduct research across a wide variety of products, and industries: for instance, luxury vehicle owners, medical device users, robo-advisers, etc. The products and interfaces we work with are varied – that variety keeps us on our toes and always learning!

Qualifications
Currently enrolled in a MA/MS or BA/BS program in behavioral science research. Classroom or lab exposure to behavioral research theory and methods either in an academic setting or in industry is preferable.  Course work in cognitive psychology, human factors, human computer interaction, ethnography or industrial engineering will be beneficial. We also have special opportunities for interns who also can program in SQL, json, and python.  If you’ve got experience in AWS – even better.

Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program

Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (URAP @ UI)

Now in its third year of collaboration, the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) and the Graduate College offer the opportunity for first and second-year undergraduate students (including transfer students) to assist advanced graduate students (those who have completed all coursework requirements and are in the dissertation research stage) with their research projects. Through a one-on-one research experience with their graduate student mentor, undergraduate students will have the opportunity to learn what it means to do research, create knowledge, and produce scholarship. Undergraduate students will begin work with their mentors in Spring 2018.

Undergraduate researchers will be given course credit (3 credit hours). Undergraduate students will attend regular weekly class meetings with OUR and Grad College instructors, as well as work one-on-one with their graduate mentors. Students will also complete a final project, consisting of a research poster, to be presented during “Undergraduate Research Week” sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR).
