Is Senior Status Too Late to Find a Research Position?

Is Senior Status Too Late to Find a Research Position?

The short answer: No, it's not too late.

Although it can be more challenging to find a lab position, and be able to finish a project so close to graduation, there are projects for students who have completed all major core requirements. Some labs even have projects that require senior status.

The main challenges you'll face will be to find a lab that accepts seniors or to persuade a mentor to choose you over someone who could be around longer.

If you're serious about research as a senior, though, don't put off your search any longer. Make it a priority and get started as soon as possible so you can find one (or possibly two!) positions to help you accomplish your personal and professional goals.
