The Web Guide to Research for Undergraduates (WebGURU) is an interactive, web-based tool intended to assist students in navigating the hurdles of an undergraduate research experience. It contains articles and advice from faculty members, graduate school admissions officers, and students. Topics range from how to chose and interact effectively with your advisor and your lab’s research team, to tips on writing your first paper. WebGURU is a great place to complement your PRISM experience at John Jay.
The site includes sections dedicated to professional development outside of the lab, a database of research funding, a guide to opportunities for summer research experiences, and advice on how to apply to professional schools.
This is a great tool to guide you on your path to your science career and an excellent resource for advice on how to prepare for research work. Take a look and come discuss your questions with us at PRISM. We can help you create a personal plan to achieve your professional goals and get you to your planned career!
