The Maryland Student Researchers (MSR) program maintains 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 155 projects are
available this Fall 2020 with more being added so check back regularly over
the next several weeks.
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.
Q & A SESSIONS: The Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research is holding
early-semester live, online Zoom Q & A 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. To receive an invitation to our Q & A sessions, please click
