Undergraduate Research Assistant Openings

Current openings for undergraduate research assistants.

Within ARFC, many projects appropriate for undergraduates require a significant dedication to learning software skills and best practices. Accordingly, we look for undergraduates who are available for at least 10 hours a week. We additionally invite undergraduates to join in our group meetings. In return for this higher level of participation, we will dedicate the time necessary to train you in high-utility computational skills.
