How should I approach a professor to get a research position?
I have been trying to get internships and I got an interview, but did not receive a call back. So I feel like I should start a bit lower, namely research with a professor.
I will be entering my junior semester.
So my question is, how would I approach these professors to obtain a research position with them? I have not yet had many of them as instructors.
I feel like I should not send them an email with my resume attached as that could be kind of impersonal. Should I try to find their offices and go in and talk to them personally and tell them I have done some reading on their research, both past and present, and am very interested.
Please help, I really want to get started on doing some work other than clubs/school.
