  2. I'd like to volunteer in a lab. How do I do this?  Contacting professors directly to ask if they are willing to take volunteers is the best way of finding out about opportunities. But do take the time to read up on the lab and the current research being done in the lab!

EEB requests applications in late January/early February. The exact deadline will be announced sometime in January.
