To find a group for conducting undergraduate research, first write down several general research directions that you are potentially interested in or wondering about, such as chemical biology, nanomaterials or computational chemistry. Then, go to the departmental website to scan through the research interests of relevant faculty members, who usually have their own group website that contains even more up-to-date information about recent research highlights and publications. It is always useful and fun to scan through several recent publications, and do not worry if you don’t understand everything! Once you have identified several groups of interest, feel free to write emails to contact the faculty to inquire whether there are research projects appropriate for an undergraduate student. Don’t get discouraged if some groups don’t have an opening! In general, our faculty members are excited to get undergraduates involved in research, so I’m confident that you will find a fun and exciting project!
