JC PandA – Research Internship (Summer)


We are recruiting interns for summer 2021. The research interns will be involved in the Jockey Club “Peace and Awareness” Mindfulness Culture in Schools Initiative. This is research cum intervention project in school setting. We introduce mindfulness to primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong. With the “train the trainers approach,” we teach school teachers how to integrate mindfulness programs into the social emotional learning curriculum in their schools. Interns may have opportunities to take 8-week mindfulness course with the school teachers and observe how mindfulness culture is developed in schools.

In general, interns should have proficiency in both English and Chinese. All the interns are expected to be responsible and independent research assistants. Preference will be given to the students in social sciences and have the passion to pursue graduate study or a career in psychology.

Intern Duties:

Research interns will help with collecting and managing data. They will work with parents, children, teachers, and students.
