Many faculty and other academics locate potential student research assistants and collaborators through courses and other touchpoints. To help reduce the burden associated with finding student researchers, various institutes, centers, and programs on campus have created centralized tools for making these connections.

College Center for Research and Fellowships

The College Center for Research and Fellowships (CCRF) supports undergraduates as they pursue transformative, educational experiences through scholarly undergraduate research and nationally competitive fellowships. CCRF promotes meaningful connections between faculty and students, encourages mentorship, provides high-impact, developmental advising and educates the UChicago community about opportunities for all College students and alumni. All faculty and research mentors who seek support in creating new undergraduate research opportunities or for additional support of existing programs, please contact Nichole Fazio directly by email or phone: / 773-702-7157

Environmental Research Network

Doing research can be a capstone event for undergraduates and master’s students, but projects and positions are often developed informally with faculty members. The Center for Robust Decision Making in Climate and Energy Policy (RDCEP), the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation, and the Program on the Global Environment have collaborated on the Environmental Research Network, a new resource to facilitate connecting students with faculty and staff who can offer research positions.

Micro-Metcalf Interns

Part of UChicago’s flagship undergraduate Jeff Metcalf Internship Program, the Micro-Metcalf Program provides organizations with a competitive source of talent for short-term projects. Through the Micro-Metcalf Program, researchers can gain immediate access to talented students ready to apply their skills to a wide variety of projects. To learn more, please contact Ruthie Robinson,

Post a Job or Internship Opportunity for Graduate Students, Postdocs, and Alumni

To post an environment-related job or internship for grad students, postdocs, and UChicago alumni, first register as an employer in GRAD Gargoyle. If you represent an on-campus office looking to hire current graduate students for part-time roles, your job may also qualify as a Higher Education Administration (HEA) internship credentialing opportunity for the student. More information can be found through UChicagoGRAD.
