In what capacity do you want to work with us (e.g., Ph.D., summer project, remote/part-time collaboration, credit-based research, etc.)?
What are your goals for this collaboration (e.g., gain experience in a particular discipline, contribute to an existing project, gain specific interpersonal skills, help with outreach initiatives, etc.)?
What background and experience do you already have to help toward achieving these goals (e.g., specific courses or internships, experience with certain software and resources, extracurricular activities, etc.)?
What are your expectations from us to help you achieve your goals (e.g., provide research ideas for you to work on, facilitate resources for your research idea, provide general mentorship, etc.)?
Why does our lab align well with your goals (e.g., specific expertise, you've read/implemented our work, recommended by someone, lab culture, etc.)?
