As a mentor, undergraduates usually approach me directly to inquire about research positions. Why should I use AURA instead?

1. You will make the application process equitable and accessible to more students.

2. You can specifically solicit applications from students with specific backgrounds, majors or qualifications.

3. Posting a listing creates a webpage with a specific URL for your position. You can then direct subsequent inquiries from interested students to this page rather than answering individual emails.

4. You can easily keep track of the student researchers that have applied to and joined your group.

5. Having a centralized listing of projects makes it easier and faster for students to identify suitable research opportunities.
