The seminar will showcase what doing research looks like in EEB and give tips and opportunities for getting involved. In particular, we will be sharing about opportunities and advice for successful UROP applications on EEB-related projects.
The program is open to students at any stage of their undergraduate career, though some seminars and workshops will be aimed specifically at certain subsets of students (e.g., soon-to-be-graduates, underrepresented groups in STEM). Whether you are applying for graduate school this fall or you are still deciding your major, our goal is to help you have the connections and information that we wish we’d had when we were undergraduate students.
If you are interested in any of the following, this program may be for you:
While many of these topics will be covered during seminars and workshops, connecting with a graduate student mentor is the best way to make the most of the program and receive helpful advice and insight from someone who has been in your shoes. Mentors represent diverse personal backgrounds and span research interests in grassland ecology, plant-microbe interactions, adaptive evolution, community ecology, microbial evolution, forest ecology, wildlife disease, nutrient cycling, animal behavior and learning, and more!
