Each research mentor profile contains a lot of information including a list of areas of research and a link to their Reach NC profile.

The Reach NC  profiles gives users the ability to search and browse thousands of expert profiles, use sophisticated visual analytics tools, and make connections to colleagues down the hall or across the state.

Before You Meet With a Potential Mentor:

  • Consider both your long-term interests and short-term goals.
  • What do you hope to gain from this mentorship?
  • Are you seeking a full-time, part-time, paid, or unpaid experience?
  • How long are you willing to commit to the mentorship?
  • What implications would this relationship have for your long-term professional goals?

Your Responsibilities

It is your responsibility to clearly communicate what you hope to gain and what you have to offer. Follow through on your commitment. If a faculty member agrees to be your research mentor, understand that he/she will be expending significant time and resources in training and supervising you.  It is your responsibility to be reliable and to work hard.

Not all research mentors listed on this site may have the band-width to take on a mentoree. Relay your interest, check-in periodically for opportunities, but also pursue other research mentors on this site.
