Resources After Joining a Lab

What to do after joining a lab:

  • (Immediately after) Send them a thank you e-mail and tell them how excited you are to work in the lab!
  • Get to know your Grad student mentor (if possible) - they are your connection to your PI
  • Feel out the lab culture
  • Try to find an undergrad that has experience with the lab to be able to ask questions to
  • First impressions are everything - do not slack off just because you got in!
