Research Fellowships

St. Norbert College has a rich tradition of engaging students in collaborative research projects with professors. Our exciting Research Fellowship program offers you the chance to work on a project collaboratively with faculty or staff members at the beginning of your college career.

Positions

Research Fellowships 
Research Fellowships for 2021-23 are here!

  • Building Bridges Fellow (social sciences)
    • Building Bridges seeks to reduce the achievement gap by offering students financial incentives for participation in programming designed to help support students of diverse backgrounds, first generation students, and those with financial stress. The student fellow will assist in data collection and analysis of the impact of this program.
  • CatholicLink: Research & analysis of leadership and character development programs (Fellowship has been filled)
  • Development of a remote aquatic monitoring station (physics, computer science, environmental science, math)
    • This project will develop a remote environmental data collection station to facilitate the study of conditions in aquatic ecosystems. This is extremely important in gauging the effect of climate change on these sensitive environments.
  • Digital Learning and Production Fellow (computer science, education)
    • Using the Flexible Learning Environments Exchange (FLEXspace.org), the student will research innovative spaces, while aiding in the design and creation of a flexible multipurpose studio to support creation of audio / visual teaching resources.
  • Media Psychology Fellow (social sciences)
    • Media Psychology is the study of how people use media and how it impacts them. It is a social scientific field that relies on qualitative and quantitative research methods. Situated within this discipline, Dr. Kretz’s work focuses on entertainment media, especially television and movies.
  • Optimization of laser design with 3D printing (physics, sciences)
    • This project will involve the optimization of the design for a frequency controlled laser. The design and construction will be done using a combination of components purchased and constructed, including 3D printing techniques, working towards implementation on an optical table.
  • Sustainability in Printmaking (art, environmental science)
    • The student fellow will learn basic printmaking techniques, shop maintenance, and professional practices related to art exhibitions and sales. The student will work closely with the faculty supervisor to identify and pursue opportunities to improve the sustainability of our shop methods, our outreach, and/or our annual art sale.

Apply

How to Apply
To be considered for a research fellowship project, submit an application and attach the following documents:

  • Résumé of leadership and activities
  • Essay that addresses your interest in the selected research project and why you think you would be a good fit for the project (maximum word count: 500)

As part of the selection process, finalists will interview with the faculty or staff member sponsoring the research. If awarded this opportunity, recipients will work for two years on a specific research project. The time commitment involved will vary based on the program, but averages five hours per week. These are paid positions. You are able to apply for multiple fellowships, but will only be able to accept one position.

After we receive all supporting documents, we will be in touch about your next steps.
