Potential Grauate Student Research Mentors
The following link contains a list of graduate students interested in supervising undergraduate research projects. They have volintarily given their names and information so feel free to contact them. We recommend making appointments to meet with at least 3 graduate students and, after meeting, choosing the one that you think would be the best fit. You do not need to prepare anything for the initial meeting, instead just have a breif converstation and ask them to tell you about what they do.

"Career Options for Women in the Mathematical Sciences"
This IMA workshop was held April 2-4, 2009, to help familiarize women in the mathematical sciences with professional opportunities in industry and government labs. Speakers and panelists included women from industry, national labs, and academia. All talk abstracts and video of the talks can be found online at http://www.ima.umn.edu/2008-2009/SW4.2-4.09/. The following talks may be of particular interest to graduate students:
1. Planning Ahead: http://www.ima.umn.edu/2008-2009/SW4.2-4.09/abstracts.html#7575
This talk discusses steps graduate students can take along the way to help themselves when they need to apply for jobs.
2. How to Write a Grant: http://www.ima.umn.edu/2008-2009/SW4.2-4.09/abstracts.html#7519
