Sciam is a consulting company operating at the intersection between IT and the behavioral sciences. It is currently creating a number of offers relating insights from cognitive science to technology development.

Developing a method for "cognitive audits" of charitable websites: the objective of the internship is to develop a generalizable method capable of assessing the usability and "cognitive ease" of charity sites. The focus is on identifying cognitive factors related to website design that could reduce the likelihood of people of goodwill making online donations to charities. The output will be a generalist platform audit matrix, designed from a cognitive perspective and tested for reliability. This matrix should indicate the main KPI's to be measured to assess a platform from a cognitive point of view.
