Undergraduate opportunities


Hourly positions: Undergraduate students are employed to assist with laboratory, greenhouse, and field research projects.  Students typically work 8-12 hours/week during the academic year and full-time during the summer (late May through August).

Independent research projects: Undergraduate students interested in conducting guided independent research projects may be funded through any of a variety of UW fellowship programs (e.g., Hilldale, Holstrom) or through the NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.  These are competitive programs, with annual application deadlines typically in January.
