HOW TO GET STARTED WITH RESEARCH AT UNC
Explore the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) to begin your search
Investigate for Specific Interests
Go to google and search within UNC for research topics you’re interested in. To do this, type in some keywords and then “site:unc.edu” after that (for example “polymers site:unc.edu”). Go through the google results to find a lab where people have similar interests. Email the PI (Principal Investigator) and tell them that you’re interested in their research and ask if you could have an interview with them for a possible lab job.
Examine Lab Postings from Science Departments
If you don’t have any sort of specific research interests go to the departmental web page of your major (CHEM and BIOL) and find their page for undergraduate research (chem research and bio research). From these pages you can see which professors are currently looking for undergraduates to work for them, and for bio you have to just look through the labs listed on the undergrad research page).
