MARYLAND CENTER FOR UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH



Maryland Student Researchers / Database of Undergrad Research Opportunities



ARE YOU AN UNDERGRADUATE INTERESTED IN EXPLORING RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES FOR
SPRING 2022 AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND?


The Maryland Student Researchers (MSR) program maintains 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 Spring 2022 with more being added so check back
regularly over the next several weeks.



To review the Maryland Student Researchers database with nearly 200
available opportunities (more added daily) by visiting this website:
https://mcur.umd.edu/maryland-student-researchers-database


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, visit
this link and 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.


NOTE: CMNS undergraduates may also find it helpful to check out this
website for personalized, college-specific information on how to engage in
research. See this link:
