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 Marketing Yourself and Working the Problem: Creative 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 a Getting Started workshop are enrolled in the Canvas organization Undergraduate Research Interest Group, which contains a listing of current research opportunities and additional resources.
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 should not be used as the primary source for locating opportunities. The best way to locate a research position is to engage and network with faculty and other department personnel.

Creating a Personal Vision Statement and Credentialing Yourself
In this interactive workshop students will learn how to develop a personal vision statement. Workshop participants will also compose a Curriculum Vitae or “academic resume”. Taking the time to prepare these documents will help potential undergraduate researchers communicate their unique skill set, demonstrate why they are the best candidate for the position, and make them more competitive for research positions.
