What Are Peer Research Ambassadors?
Peer Research Ambassadors play an important role in promoting the culture of undergraduate research, expanding the awareness of undergraduate research at Auburn University, and offering peer support and assistance to undergraduates. As a Peer Research Ambassador, you will have the opportunity to develop your communication and leadership skills while serving a very important role in the AU undergraduate student community.
What Are the General Qualifications for a Peer Research Ambassador?
Ideal Peer Research Ambassador candidates will have experience doing mentored research at Auburn University for at least two semesters.
What Do Peer Research Ambassadors do?
By completing an application, you will be volunteering to have your name, major, research topic, and email published on the Undergraduate Research website website as a contact for students in your college who would like to get started in undergraduate research. Your role will be to answer questions via email and to provide guidance on how to get involved. Peer Research Ambassadors may be called upon form time to time to participate in student research information panels and/or do presentations to student groups. Being a PRA is not time consuming, but necessitates a passion for research and helping others.
We hope you will consider this opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with the undergraduate community at Auburn University. If you wish to serve as a Peer Research Ambassador for your college or school, please complete the short application and send it via email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications for the 2014-2015 academic year are due by April 21, 2014.
