Mentorship Opportunity - REX Mentor Recruitment

We are emailing on behalf of an AMS club, Undergraduate Research Opportunities (URO) regarding the Research EXperience Program (REX), which is a mentorship program designed to pair graduate student and postdocs with undergraduates and guide them through a prospective research project. This would be an excellent opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to gain mentorship and leadership experience while supporting undergraduate research. We are asking that you kindly forward the following email to graduate students and postdocs in your department.

Thank you for taking the time to read this email and supporting undergraduate research at UBC!

Mentorship Opportunity:

The Research EXperience program (REX) is a mentorship opportunity that pairs graduate students and postdocs up with small groups of 2-4 undergraduates. REX is a six month long program designed to help undergraduate students build essential research skills through a prospective research project (no results, lab time, or lab resources required).

We are currently looking for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who are interested in committing a minimum of 3 hours each month to act as a mentor.
