More Info


Are you interested in Biology? Botany? Physics? Neuroscience? Clinical research? Archaeology? Psychology? Nanotechnology? If the research that you want to pursue occurs in a lab, a research team, or as part of a field project, then finding people to work with is your biggest priority.

This workshop will help you navigate the best way to find that research group.
With hundreds of labs on the Evanston and Chicago campuses, and all of them doing exciting work, there’s no magic matching system between undergraduates and Northwestern University labs. You have to be proactive in finding somewhere that will be the perfect match for you.

We will teach you how to personalize an email to faculty that is most likely to get a response, and the proper ettiquette for those emails and follow up conversations
