Find a Student Researcher

If you do not have a student in mind or teach courses at the time, here are some methods to recruit students:

  • Post your research opportunity through the Office of Undergraduate Research's OURConnect
  • Ask colleagues to announce the opportunity in relevant courses or with their advisees
  • Post fliers in hallways where students you would like to hire are at frequently
  • Contact former undergraduate researchers or students you are connected with to ask them or for recommendations

If a potential student researcher is less experienced than you hope, but seems to be a good worker, think of other ways to engage them while they complete coursework or other experiences. Other ways to engage these students include student work in your area, short literature reviews for projects, invitations to journal clubs, and meetings with your research team.
