Subject: Maryland Student Researchers / Database and Info Sessions Description: MARYLAND CENTER FOR UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH Maryland Student Researchers / Database of Opportunities ARE YOU AN UNDERGRADUATE INTERESTED IN EXPLORING RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES FOR SPRING 2020 AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND? Learn more about the Maryland Student Researchers program, and review over 165 available opportunities (more added daily) by visiting our website at:http://www.ugresearch.umd.edu/current-studentresearchers.html 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 165 projects are listed 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. INFO SESSIONS: (Link to online schedule here) http://www.ugresearch.umd.edu/current-infosessions.html The Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research is holding early-semester 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.
