> Dear Dr. Reiner Kruecken,
>
> *Undergraduate Research Opportunities*is a student-led, 
> AMS-constituted UBC club. We run the *Research EXperience (REX)* 
> program where undergraduate students are paired with post-doctoral and 
> graduate students to design a theoretical research project. At the end 
> of the program, the undergraduate students present their finished 
> projects at MURC, one of the largest undergraduate research conference 
> in BC. This initiative provides undergraduates early exposure to the 
> valuable world of research without the monetary and logistical 
> constraints associated with the traditional laboratory experience. The 
> 2014-15 program saw the participation of over 130 mentors and 700 
> undergraduate applicants.
>
> *What is REX?*
>
> REX is a year-long program designed to help undergraduate students 
> build essential research skills through a /prospective/ research 
> project (no results, lab time, or lab resources required). The skills 
> acquired by the prospective students include:
>
> ·         Formulating research questions
>
> ·         Understanding how to perform literature reviews
>
> ·         Synthesizing an experimental design
>
> ·         Creating & printing a research poster
>
> ·         Learning how to present a research poster
>
> We are currently looking for graduate students and post-doctoral 
> fellows who are interested in committing a minimum of 3 hours each 
> month to act as a mentor. It is a great opportunity for graduate 
> students to gain mentorship, leadership, and management skills. 
> **Furthermore, the REX program assists mentors on the lookout for 
> promising students to take into their lab through direct evaluation 
> for 6 months (October to March).
