Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose a lab or a sponsor?

If you do not already have a lab or sponsor to which you would like to apply, you may apply to the "general-lab" option on the application and you may also apply to a specific individual's lab. When trying to choose a lab, make sure you do some research to be sure that the lab is working on a project of interest to you. The MIP ​Research​ section is a great place to browse through the lab websites. The faculty listing may also be useful.

May I apply to more than one lab?

Yes, you may apply to more than one lab; however, a separate submission needs to be completed for each lab to which you apply.

How long is my application kept on file?

Application submissions will be kept on file for one year at which point they will be removed. You may then reapply.

How long will it take to hear back from a professor?

Unfortunately, some of our professors are extremely busy and will only check their applications if/when they'​re hiring. Most faculty members will try to respond in a timely manner, but some faculty will not respond. If you need a response from a particular faculty member, it is best to email that person directly.
