Finding work to do research on

  1. Oct 31, 2013 #1
    As an undergraduate, how does one generally go about searching for summer research positions? I am interested in applying to a much wider range than the programs my school offers, so does anyone know how or where I might perform a search for opportunities to do research?

    Look for an REU assuming you are in the US

    It's best to start at your own school. REU programs like to give people chances they can't get at their own schools; it helps if you can show you've already done research at your institution, and you'll get letters from research advisers as well. REU programs can be very competitive, but you can also apply to those.
