Connecting you to research opportunities for undergraduates in the sciences is at the core of what we do. There are many things to consider when searching for and applying to a position, including the area of research, the scope of your involvement (are you working on your own project, or just washing glassware?) and the amount of time commitment needed to list just a few.
Understandbly, this can be daunting for the undergraduate who has never been exposed to the world of scientific research and the lab environment. To address this issue, MURSA has created a short guide to finding and applying for research positions.
The MURSA Guide to Finding a Research Position as an Undergraduate Student
Even after familiarizing yourself with the process of finding and applying to a research position, finding a suitable position can still be a challenge due to the sheer number of opportunities available and the lack of awareness on the part of a lot of student of most of these opportunities. MURSA has compiled a list of common research opportunities available to undergraduates to help you on your search.
The Research Opportunities and Scholarships Guidebook is now available for purchase at ALL EVENTS by MURSA members for $5.00 and non-members for $10.00.
