About OUR

OUR Department Liaisons

The faculty, postdoctoral scholars, graduate students and staff listed below are Department Liaisons. Many of them have posted their willingness to talk with you about research opportunities in their departments in the Database of Research Opportunities. Please feel free to contact and/or make an appointment with them to discuss your interests. The Liaisons have prepared tips on preparing your CV and writing a contact e-mail message, so you might want to review these suggestions before your meeting.

If you are a graduate student, postdoctoral scholar, or faculty member interested in serving as a liaison for undergraduate research, please see the position description (pdf) and contact the Associate Director.

If you are an undergraduate student and your area does not have a Liaison at the moment, we encourage you to contact an OUR Ambassador or make an appointment to speak with the Director of Undergraduate Studies in your major.
