The IBR SOAR (Student Overview of Applied Research) Lab is a new IBR program developed by Jen Pankow and colleagues, to provide opportunities for undergraduate students to experience applied research, coupled with interactive activities designed to enhance academic skills and create networking and mentoring opportunities with research interested peers, graduate students, and IBR research scientists.
There are three Tiers for the SOAR Lab:
|Brief Description||Time Commitment||Application Details|
|Tier 1||Open-group monthly meetings||1-3 hours per month||No application needed. Email email@example.com to be added to the email list.|
|Tier 2||IBR research apprenticeship||10 hours per week||Tier 2 Apprenticeship Application|
|Tier 3||IBR Paid Internship Opportunity||10 hours per week||Must have previous SOAR Lab engagement. Email firstname.lastname@example.org|
All students are invited to participate in attending the SOAR Lab monthly meetings (Tier 1) featuring research presentations by scientists and graduate students, introducing lab members to IBR project interventions. Students in Tier 1 collaborate on research for poster presentations as a part of the Student Research Symposium (SRS) each spring.

IBR SOAR Lab Coffee Connections is an additional chance to come get all your questions answered. This time is for active members who missed a monthly meeting, or anyone new looking to join. It is also a chance for groups to meet and discuss project plans. Coffee Connections occur the Friday following the regularly scheduled SOAR Lab meeting in RJH 211 from 9am – 11:30am.
Students are invited to apply for Tier 2 to receive a placement at the IBR and hands-on experience with large-scale research
projects. Tier 2 placements are competitive and require a commitment of 10 hours a week for the semester. Download the application, complete it and send it to email@example.com
If you have previous involvement with the SOAR Lab Tier 1 or Tier 2, you may be considered for a Tier 3 placement. Please contact your current project lead for more information.
