Undergraduates in the Lab
Thanks for your interest in the Durrant Lab. If you want to work in the lab, send me (Dr. Durrant, email@example.com) the answers to these question:
- How many hours can you commit to per week? It takes at least ten to fifteen hours a week to get anything much done. Let me know if your class schedule is too busy this semester. Perhaps another semester will work better.
- Can you sign up for the appropriate number of research credits? Each credit corresponds to four hours of lab work per week (e.g., 3 credit hours = 12 hours of lab work each week).
- Can you send me a copy of your transcript, résumé/C.V., and class schedule for this semester?
If the Durrant Lab seems like the right place for you, let’s schedule a meeting. If everything is in order, it would be wonderful to have you in the lab for a “trial-period semester.” We’ll chat about your progress after that and decide if the lab is still a good fit.
Thanks again for your interest! I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
