The Research Recruits program is a two-semester undergraduate research or creative experience with a Kean faculty member. This is an opportunity to learn about research at the discovery and inquiry level by joining a student-faculty research team. It is an entry-level position, with no prior research experience required. Interested freshmen, sophomores, and first-semester transfer students are especially encouraged to apply.
Research Recruits are matched with CURF Peer Advisers (CPAs) who are upper-level undergraduate students with significant research experience. CPAs serve as guides for the Research Recruits and liaisons with the faculty research mentors.
Research Recruit applicants must possess good written and oral communication skills, a strong work ethic, and the ability to work in teams. Students are expected to work a minimum of 5-10 hours per week on their project. Students who complete their research experiences will be expected to participate in Kean Research Days in April, with the opportunity to present their findings to the Kean University community.
