The Getting Started Workshop Series includes three informative and interactive workshops designed to provide comprehensive research training and instruction. Workshops include: Getting Started in UR, Researching a Mentor and Developing an Undergraduate Research Project, and Working the Problem: Research Skills
Getting Started in Undergraduate Research Workshop
This interactive workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the entire undergraduate research process at USF. Students will learn about the types of research opportunities available, how to network with potential mentors, and how to get credit for research experiences. Students who attend the Getting Started workshop are added to the Undergraduate Research Interest Group Canvas organization, which contains a listing of current research opportunities.
A Note About Position Announcements on Canvas: Announcements posted on the Canvas organization represent an additional resource for students seeking a research position. The list is NOT comprehensive and therefore should not be used as the only or primary source for current opportunities. The OUR recommends that students seeking positions engage with their professors and other department personnel for information regarding available opportunities.
