Undergraduate Research Positions

Stevens’ undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to participate in research opportunities. Typically, undergraduate researchers participate in summer programs, in which the student focuses on a research project, notably with the option to continue his/her research into the academic year. Interested individuals may contact Professor Yang ([email protected]).

Expectations and Responsibilities of Research Students

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure continued progress of their academic program and thesis research. Students have a responsibility for the following aspects of their program:

  • Students are expected to devote their time in the lab to perform theoretical and experimental work during workdays (exception: classes and exams).

  • Students are expected to work on their class homework/projects outside of work hours and weekends.

  • Students are expected to maintain the integrity and ethical standards in all aspects of the student’s work.

  • Students are expected to maintain detailed, organized, and accurate laboratory notebooks and records. When a student leaves a lab, the notebook and all research data remain the property of the laboratory.

  • Students are expected to promote collegiality and a welcoming environment in all aspects of the student’s program, ensuring that all are treated with respect.

  • Students are expected to help maintain clean and safe laboratory and common spaces.
