Student Research Opportunities
Although faculty may not have specific student research positions open, most faculty are almost always willing to take on undergraduate students who are enthusiastic, sharp, and have a strong work ethic. Student research positions range from working with a graduate student on their research project to taking on a specific line of research within a larger research project. Research experience is a great resume builder and may boost your chances at scholarships, graduate school, or career positions.
If you are interested in being involved in a faculty research program compose a formal well-written email to the respective faculty member outlining the following:
- Why you are interested in the faculty members research project or area of interest
- If the faculty member does not have a current specific research project that interests you, propose a project idea to discuss with them
- Why are you qualified to participate in a research project or to take on your own research project
- State your time and availability to commit to the research project
