Check out 100+ Opportunities for Undergraduate Research!

Are you interested in exploring research opportunities for fall 2014 at UMD?

Learn more about the Maryland Student Researchers program, and review over 100 available opportunities by visiting: http://www.ugresearch.umd.edu/studentresearchers.php

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. More projects are added daily so check back regularly over the next several weeks.

The MSR bulletin board is designed to help undergraduates of all majors 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. Most positions are for volunteers, some are paid.

ELIGIBILITY: Any student in good academic standing may apply directly for any listed opportunities for which they meet the listed required skills.  Selection of undergraduate researchers is made solely by the faculty members who provide the listed opportunities.
