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 during the first week of the Fall and Spring Semesters.
