Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in undergraduate research. There are a number of fellowship opportunities available for gaining summer research experience. These include the STEMCats, Physiology Scholars, Bucks for Brains, IES Brain Research programs among others. Many independent study programs provide a means to get research experience during the school year. We have a small number of undergraduate research opportunities each semester that fill up quickly. The Office of Undergraduate Research at the University of Kentucky is a great resource for UK students.
I believe a successful graduate career is based upon doing engaging science but more importantly upon the mentoring/lab environment. Doing cutting edge, exciting science without proper support can be challenging. Every member of our group is committed to creating a supportive, team environment. If you are interested in learning more about the lab through a research rotation, please send me an e-mail email@example.com introducing yourself and attach (1) a CV with names of three references and (2) a written statement (~1 page) that summarizes your current research interests/ideas, your idealized goal after completing a graduate degree, and why you think the NERO lab is a good place to reach those goals. I look forward to hearing from you.
Dissertation committee membership. I am happy to serve on dissertation committees and believe that selecting the right mentors can greatly enhance your graduate experience. I ask to meet with students prior to joining a committee and discuss his/her project to make sure that I am a suitable counsel. Also I ask that we have monthly meetings to facilitate feedback about your thesis project throughout your career if I join your committee. Please contact me if you would like discuss your committee.
