Developing Your Research Program in the Natural Sciences With Undergraduate Students

When:  Jun 24, 2024 from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM (ET)

ConnectUR 2024 Preconference Workshop

Institutions that emphasize undergraduate education can offer productive and rewarding research careers for future faculty. Considering that a vast majority of academic jobs are available at such institutions compared to research one/high research productivity institutions, graduate students and post-doctoral researchers should have ample opportunity to learn about diverse career tracks in academia. This workshop will provide trainees with first-hand experience from established faculty within such institutions, along with strategies for enhancing one’s research program within the context of undergraduate teaching and mentoring. In addition, the workshop will provide trainees with information about sources of funding and other resources to support their research with undergraduates. They will also learn about resources available through the Council on Undergraduate Research as a professional organization.
