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: https://umdsurvey.umd.edu/jfe/form/SV_cRPlBtcfL9cQwdf
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.
