Undergraduate Research Opportunities Message


Undergraduate Research Opportunities (URO) is a student-run and AMS constituted club here at UBC; this September, we are launching a program called The Research EXperience (REX). As part of REX, graduate student mentors will be paired with undergraduate students to design a research proposal. This exposes the undergraduate to components of a research project (formulating a question, generating mock results and putting together a poster) without having to be in a formal laboratory setting. REX is a great opportunity for mentors to gain valuable mentoring experience with an average commitment of 3 hours per month from September to March.

We are currently looking for graduate students who might be interested in being part of our mentorship program and working with undergraduate students to develop a mock research project.

For more information or to register as a mentor, please go to http://uro.ubc.ca/rex/mentor/.
