ARE YOU AN UNDERGRADUATE INTERESTED IN EXPLORING RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES FOR
SPRING 2016 AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND?

Learn more about the Maryland Student Researchers program, and review over
150 available opportunities by visiting our website at:
http://www.ugresearch.umd.edu/current-studentresearchers.html

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 150 projects are listed
right now 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.

The Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research will hold numerous information
sessions at the start of the Spring 2016 semester, 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 – Please visit our website at www.ugresearch.umd.edu
beginning Monday, January 26 to sign up for a session.

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 students of all majors and disciplines with an interest in research.
Most positions are offered on a volunteer basis, and selection of
undergraduate researchers is made solely by the faculty members who provide
the listed opportunities.
