Often graduate students work with professors within their local University on research projects. However, I am aware of a few institutions that allow (or actually require) students to seek outside collaborations for research projects (e.g. capstone projects). Given that many people are still working remotely, this seems like a good time to capitalize on remote collaborations (although I understand some may be wary of such relationships).

Is anyone aware of such opportunities for collaboration? Perhaps there is a forum / board or other somewhere that connects students to research opportunities?

  • Frankly this is going to be very different for graduate students vs. undergrads, which one are you searching for? Are you attempting to recruit undergrads from another institution? Nov 10, 2021 at 1:51
  • Thanks @AzorAhai-him- for this point. I've edited to include just graduate students in the text - I only meant to ask about graduate students, although I'd be interested to hear about opportunities for either. Nov 10, 2021 at 3:20
  • Can't you just post a job advert in the usual place for your field? In physics we use AAS Jobs, mathjobs, inspire-hep jobs etc. I imagine most fields have similar websites. Nov 11, 2021 at 8:21
