I just started my first year of University at McGill and I am about to start inquiring professors about research opportunities.
Should I aim to try to find one professor and stick with their lab for the next three years, or try to get a few of them at once? I know med schools want to see commitment, so I don't really want to flip-flop between research labs over the next semesters.
What are the types of questions I should ask to ensure that they will continue to maintain positions available for the next few years? Since I have just started my specific program courses, what kind of things will they have me do in the lab? If I am just helping out in the first few semesters, will I have a better chance at getting a larger role in the lab once I gain some experience (hopefully to shoot towards some sort of publication?)
Sorry about the scattered thoughts!
