EUREKA is a searchable database designed to support undergraduate participation in research and creative activity across campus. EUREKA includes profiles for University of Texas at Austin faculty members with information about their research interests and links to their department web pages.
STUDENTS: Using EUREKA, you can identify faculty who are doing research that matches your interests and search for research opportunities. Enter keywords into the search bar above to find faculty members who share your interests. EUREKA only lists exact keyword matches, so if you don't get the results you're looking for right away, try other related keywords. Be sure to search for more general terms as well as specific ones. For example, if you don't get many search results for “second language acquisition,” try “bilingualism” or “bilingual” to find professors who may study similar topics.
EUREKA also offers a projects section where you may view research assistant positions posted by faculty members. Many of these projects are ongoing, so don’t be afraid to look at projects that were posted several months ago. The projects list is by no means comprehensive; faculty members may be willing to work with you even if they have not posted an opening.
