The Symposium offers part-time paid research co-op employment for students. Symposium Student Research Fellows interface with multiple faculty affiliated with the Symposium to create and execute an interdisciplinary research project. Projects will be aligned with the Symposium theme for that year, tackling a single idea within the theme or specific course topic.
In addition to working closely with a faculty mentor on an interdisciplinary project and gaining research experience, Symposium Student Research Fellows are:
- Expected to complete a project outline in conjunction with their faculty mentor(s)
- Required to take one Symposium course during their co-op
- Expected to present their work on campus
- Encouraged to present their work at an undergraduate research conference or discipline-specific conference (eligible for funding through Undergraduate Research & Enrichment Programs)
Other expectations or deliverables may be collaboratively determined by the Symposium Student Research Fellows and faculty mentor(s) as the project develops. This position provides Symposium Student Research Fellows the opportunity to creatively engage, execute interdisciplinary research, and be part of the team shaping the Symposium and its related programing, projects, and presentations.
Opportunities to work part-time as a Symposium Student Research Fellow are available in both the Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer co-op cycles. Please send inquiries to Undergraduate Research and Enrichment Programs.
