What is the difference between an internship and a research assistant?
How to Connect with a Faculty Mentor
Find a faculty member who’s research interests you. For example, if your interest is in biotechnology we suggest looking at faculty in Biology or Physics and Engineering
Email that faculty member to ask if they have any openings in their lab for a new student research assistant and ask if you can apply.
Faculty expect to hear from students and look forward to meeting motivated assistants!
