MURI facilitates the creation and support of multidisciplinary research teams consisting of undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, senior staff, and faculty. The primary purpose of these teams is to provide
In this program, students acquire research skills (e.g., literature review, research methodology, data collection, analysis), learn about ethics in research and scientific writing, and improve their oral communication skills by presenting their research at either the annual IUPUI Student Research and Creative Activities Day in April or the CRL Student Summer Poster Symposium in July. The academic year cycle runs from October to April, the summer cycle from June to July.
MURI is funded through a partnership between the Center for Research and Learning and the School of Engineering and Technology. As part of this employment program, students earn $11 per hour. During the academic year, students work approximately 10 hours per week; during the summer, students' weekly hours will be determined based on project needs. The mentors receive up to $2,000 for research supplies or equipment.
