Pro Tip!

When contacting professors or research scientists about opportunities…

  • attend seminars and presentations to learn about research in fields you’re interested in and approach the presenter if something they discussed has sparked your interest.
  • take a class with a professor whose research interests you and engage with them in office hours or after class about research opportunities.
  • practice writing introductory emails to professors. Use online guides for cold emailing about working in a lab, for example here and here.
