Dear All,

FYI, in case you are interested in mentoring a student. 
This program will start in September, 2014 and end in March, 2015. The understanding is that mentors do not have to devote more than 3 hours per month to provide guidance to students.

Best, Oliver

> Dear Oliver Stelzer-Chilton , 
> Hello. We are the Science Branch Coordinators with Undergraduate Research Opportunities (URO). URO is a student-run and AMS constituted club here at UBC; this September, we will be launching a program called The Research EXperience (REX). As part of REX, graduate students or postdoctoral fellows will be paired with undergraduate students to design a prospective research project, thereby exposing the student to the components of a research project (formulating a question, generating mock results and putting together a poster), without having to be in a formal laboratory setting.
> We are currently looking for either graduate students or post-doctoral fellows who might be interested in being part of our mentorship program and working with undergraduate students to develop a mock research project. We are asking that you please assist us by forwarding this message to members of your lab in the hopes of recruiting interested individuals to potentially become mentors for the program. It would be a great opportunity for all parties involved: for the undergraduate student to gain exposure to research, for the graduate student to gain experience mentoring a student, and for labs to be on the lookout for promising students. 
> To register as a mentor or to find more information, please visit www.uro.ubc.ca/rex/mentor/
> Thank you for taking the time to read this email and we hope that your honour our requested by forwarding this email to interested lab members. We appreciate your help in instilling an interest in research in undergraduate students. 
> Sincerely,
> Jacqueline Siu & Jenah Alibhai
