Student Deadline: RA Applications
The Aresty Research Assistant (RA) Program enables students to gain their first authentic reseach experiences by supporting faculty research projects during the academic year. RAs gain valuable research skills by working side by side with professors on forefront research projects, while professors benefit from a structured program to recruit and train the next generation of researchers. Students selected for the program do five hours of research per week (or more by arrangement with their professor). Selected students also attend peer group meetings with other undergraduate researchers to practice scholarly communication, explore research ethics, design posters, and discuss research methodology.
The Research Assistant program is open to any Rutgers-New Brunswick undergraduate with no previous experience conducting research with a professor at Rutgers. Students already established in labs, or simply seeking a new project in the same field, are not eligible for this program. You may apply to up to three projects. Applications are due April 7.
