Many faculty members are interested in working with undergraduates on research projects. Let us help you find the right mentor and get started in research.
Here are some steps to help you get started:
These portals help set up a first conversation with a prospective faculty mentor. This is a great professional development opportunity. You will talk about your experiences, interests and discuss potential fit.
Do not be concerned if you don't have lots of research experience yet. The reason you are at the University is to get this experience.
Review the mentor's research through the facility profile page and/or the department mentor portals. You don't have to be an expert at their work, but you should know why you want to talk to them.
Come prepared with some idea of the amount of time you can commit during a semester. Discuss if this is a good fit with the mentor's needs.
