Here are some ways you can try to find research positions or research labs to work in:
- Sign up for our online platform!

- If you know any family or friends that are in faculty positions, you can ask them about available research positions.
It is important to keep in mind that you should always try to conduct research in subjects that you are interested in. When you force yourself to do research on topics you are not interested in, you are only doing a disservice to yourself. However, with that said, keep an open-mind when you go through professors and their respective research subjects.
