As a mentor in the REX program you are able to apply your high level of research experience to help UBC undergraduate students create, interact with, and present their own original research projects at the annual Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference (MURC). Mentoring in REX will include opportunities such as:
Teaching students about aspects of research and research fields you are familiar with
Guiding students through the process of making a research question a formal presentation
Supporting students as they work hard to create their own research
Showing students how interesting and rewarding research can be in all faculties!
Every mentor will be matched with a group of 2 – 5 undergraduate students that have eagerly applied to work with you. Mentors work together with their Mentees to decide what the group is interested in researching and how you will collaborate to make the best project possible.
