On Campus Opportunities

Below is a list of possible research opportunities for full-time undergraduates at Boston University. If you are interested in one of these opportunities, you should contact the listed faculty mentor directly; we do not have information about the availability of these positions at UROP. Note also that these listings are only opportunities that professors have asked the UROP staff to post.  Therefore, if you do not see anything in your area of interest, we encourage you to contact other professors directly to ask if they have any opportunities available. Often you may find out information about other research opportunities by looking at departmental web pages of faculty or by contacting a given departmental office and asking about research opportunities. To find out more about UROP, go to our home page at www.bu.edu/urop, or you can get there by clicking on “Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program” at the top of this page.
