Subject: New!! UMD Undergrad Research iPhone App


Maryland Student Researchers / Database of Undergrad Research Opportunities

We're excited to announce a new way to search for research opportunities in
the Maryland Student Researchers database:

UMD RO (for 'research opportunities') is a new iPhone app conceived and
developed by UMD first-year computer science major Pranav Dulepet - click
here for a link to the app store!

The UMD RO app is the easiest way to find undergraduate research
opportunities at the University of Maryland, College Park!

- Get a current list of all available projects
- Search for projects with a Google-like search
- Get email notifications for new and updated projects based on your searches
- Save projects that you like
- Filter projects by different fields
- Find helpful resources provided by the Maryland Center for Undergraduate

All projects are updated periodically from the Maryland Student Research
Database so you will never miss out on the right opportunity.

If you have any questions or feedback about the app, please reach out to

Don't have an iPhone? You can always review the web-based Maryland Student
Researchers database with nearly 200 available opportunities (more added
regularly) by clicking here.

The Maryland Student Researchers (MSR) program is a University-wide database
where UMD researchers post research opportunities for undergraduate students.
It is a great way for undergraduates to learn about the rewards and
challenges of academic research. Nearly 200 projects are available this Fall
2021 with more being added so check back regularly over the next several

To view a recorded presentation on getting started in undergraduate research,
and using our database of opportunities, you can request access to our ELMS
resource site for undergraduate research. To gain access click here to
complete a brief questionnaire.

The MSR bulletin board is designed to help undergraduates find research
opportunities that are a good fit for their interests and qualifications, and
to help faculty members find students to assist with their research
project(s). The research opportunities posted on the MSR website typically
call for students to spend around six hours a week working under the
direction of a faculty mentor on that faculty member’s own research.
Participating students learn skills and gain valuable experience that will
enhance their graduate school and job qualifications. Many positions are for
volunteers, some are paid.

ELIGIBILITY: Any student in good academic standing may apply directly for any
listed opportunities for which they have the listed required skills.  It is
open to undergraduates of all majors and disciplines with an interest in
research. Many positions are offered on a volunteer basis, and selection of
undergraduate researchers is made solely by the faculty members who provide
the listed opportunities.
