BURA is the Biology Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship program. This program provides a central website for UMass researchers—faculty, postdocs, lab managers, and grad students—to advertise undergraduate research positions in their lab at the start of each semester. Since its founding in the fall of 2010, BURA has matched hundreds of undergraduates with laboratory research projects in biology.

Students can apply for BURA positions two times a year, in the beginning of the Spring and Fall semesters.

***The Spring 2020 application period opens January 14 at noon***
We encourage you to apply early because many labs have rolling admissions and will start interviews in the first week of the semester
