Resources for Academic and Research Careers

Are you interested in continuing your education and launching a career in academia or research? Career Advancement resources can help you become a highly competitive applicant for top graduate programs and gain the skills, experience, and network you need to successfully secure academic career opportunities.

Students interested in academia and research can take advantage of:

  • Treks to meet admissions representatives at top graduate and professional school programs and researchers currently working in the field.
  • Paid research opportunities, including research assistantships with faculty and grants to fund student research projects
  • Personalized support for preparing graduate school applications
  • Discipline-specific resources through the Planning, Resources, and Involvement for Students in the Majors (PRISM) program

Students are highly encouraged to meet with faculty members working in their field of interest and to make an appointment with a Career Advancement adviser to discuss their plans and identify relevant resources.
