The Student Mentor Relationship
At RMBL, the student-mentor relationship is embedded in a vibrant resident scientific community, which facilitates superb undergraduate research. Each student’s experience will be unique, depending on their mentor’s research questions, system(s), and approach to doing science. For example, a few students will spend a lot of field time with their mentors. Other students, however, will work largely alone or as part of a lab group, having periodic meetings with their mentors along the way.
Applicants should peruse the list of mentors and projects and consider the topics that interest them. 2024 Mentor Project List
Please do not contact researchers directly. If you are accepted into the program, you will be matched with an appropriate mentor. Questions about the mentors can be directed to RMBL’s Research and Education Manager via email.
