The Maryland Student Researchers (MSR) program serves as a University-wide
online bulletin board 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. Over 140 projects are listed
with more being added daily so check back regularly over the next several
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. Most positions are for
volunteers, some are paid.
The Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research will hold numerous information
sessions to assist students who want to use the MSR bulletin board to
identify suitable research opportunities, and also to provide advice about
additional ways to pursue research opportunities – space for each session
is limited so please RSVP to [log in to unmask] with the date/time of the
