Transportation & Behavioral Sciences Summer Internship

By Kevin Webb 24 Feb 2014

Are you interested in how behavioral psychology and behavioral economics can make cities more livable?

Conveyal is offering a full-time paid summer internship for students interested in the application of behavioral psychology in changing transportation decisions and outcomes.

As an intern you will contribute to the development of software tools that re-imagine demand-side transportation management. You will work with a team of software developers and behavior change experts to examine how successes from other fields can be applied to the transportation sector. Your work will help shape our research methods and provide direct inputs to product design.

We are looking for graduate or advanced undergraduate students with a demonstrated interest in behavioral psychology or behavioral economics. An interest in urban planning, transportation policy, software development or human-computer interaction are pluses.

The internship will be based in Washington, DC. The exact schedule and location are flexible but a minimum commitment of ten weeks, full-time is expected.

Please send a resume and cover letter explaining your interest and relevant experience to contact@conveyal.com with “Summer Internship” in the subject line. Applications will be accepted through March 14th, 2014.
