Expectations of Interns

We expect that students participate in all parts of the program. Although interns will spend most of their time in the labs, they will also attend seminar series, discuss their ongoing research with fellow interns at the Research Discussion Group Series, and attend Professional Development Workshops. Although the work is intensive, we also expect students to have fun during the summer.

Participating Labs

Applicants must be participating already on an identified research project in a UO lab. UO students not yet involved in undergraduate research are encouraged to view participating faculty websites at UO Laboratories, contact PIs of interest, and try to arrange an interview.
