Please note that this is not a traditional job application. The information you provide is used to match interested students with faculty mentors. If a faculty member is interested in working with you based on the information you provide, they will contact you directly.
The Department of Mathematics will begin reviewing applications after April 7. You may submit an application after that date, but there may be fewer research positions available.
HELPFUL HINTS:(1) Spend some time looking at the Math Department's faculty profiles to identify faculty whose area of research match your interests. You can find math faculty profiles here: https://www.math.ucdavis.edu/people/faculty/
You can also look at faculty in the Graduate Group in Applied Math (GGAM): http://appliedmath.ucdavis.edu/people
(2) Think about WHY you are interested in doing research. Did you really enjoy one of your upper division courses, and now you want to explore that topic more deeply? Being able to articulate your specific interests will make your application much stronger than simply saying "I want to do any kind of research."
(3) Show our faculty that you have put time and thought into your application. This will demonstrate that you are serious about doing undergraduate research.
(4) Feel free to contact faculty directly, in addition to submitting your interest here.
(5) All students are welcome to apply for summer research positions, though you are most likely to be selected if you have successfully completed some more advanced (upper division) math courses. If you are a first or second year and aren't matched with a faculty member this year, try again next year after taking more math classes!
