Sturtevant Research Match 2016 Highlights
Welcome to the Sturtevant Research Match!
Alfred Sturtevant constructed the first genetic map during his time as an undergraduate research assistant. As Sturtevant has shown, undergraduates can have a powerful effect on the scientific community. Thus, we want to connect students through the Sturtevant Research Match to labs which will help them realize their potential.
The Scientific Immersion & Mentorship board welcomes you to our third annual Sturtevant Research Match!
Representatives from research labs around Vanderbilt will be presenting their research focuses and looking for undergraduate research assistants for their respective labs. Students at the Research Match will have the option to visit any of the dozens of poster stations, talk with the representatives from the lab to ask questions, and make a more personal connection with members from different labs.
Attendees should have several copies of their up-to-date résumés printed and ready to present to labs which interest them. From physics to cancer biology, principal investigators from varied fields will represent their labs at this fair, looking for undergraduate talent.
The Research Match makes it easy for prospective undergraduate researchers to network with members of represented labs as well as express interest in and apply to labs that attract them.
See you there!
The SIM Sturtevant Research Match will be held in the Robinson Research Building Breezeway on November 9th, 2016 from 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm.
The Breezeway is located on Floor 3 of the Robinson Research Building.
30 students paired with research labs with over 26 labs represented at the Spring 2015 Research Match. More than 150 students participated.
