Colorado Mesa University President Timothy Foster has announced a commitment to resume in-person learning in the Fall 2020 semester, outlined in the Safe Together, Strong Together campus planning initiative. While we don’t know exactly when “on-site” laboratory research can resume or what form it might take (i.e. due to COVID-19 mandated social distancing), it is highly beneficial to proactively demonstrate your interest in research opportunities sooner rather than later.
- You must have no less than 6 hours per week to dedicate to in-lab research (i.e. work that takes place in the lab, making reagents and solutions, running experiments, recording data, etc.);
- You must have no less than 6 hours per week to dedicate to out-of-lab research (i.e. work that takes place out of the lab, processing data, plotting graphs, searching out and reading references from the peer-reviewed literature, etc.);
- You should have an earnest, genuine interest for research. You need not be a research expert, or already committed to a career in research, but you should be willing to give research your fair, uncompromising dedication for the time that you remain in LEoPARD.
