hi everyone, so i am an undergrad who is graduating with a physics degree in less than two months. i dropped the ball by not being more active in my department's colloquia / student society / etc. and have not been able to get any research experience outside of lab courses (which don't count, obvs). for the past couple weeks i've been looking into all the labs at my school and found an AMO lab whose recent work i'm really interested in, and i want to approach a grad student at this lab (or possibly the prof) about helping out there. however, i don't know if these labs generally take people who are literally about to graduate. i wanted to ask, how not-normal would it be to approach grad students or profs about their research + possibly helping out in their labs after graduation? would it be a "you should have better things to do by now" / "you should have approached me as an undergrad" situation or would it be okay to attempt this? is this something that people who have graduated with physics degrees do on a somewhat occasional basis? for what it's worth, i plan on committing at least 6-12 months if they will have me. any answers or insight would be appreciated!! thank you.
