Call for Research Week Volunteers!

Research Week 2014 is approaching fast and we need your help! Each year volunteers play a critical role in in making Research Week a success. Anyone at OHSU can volunteer. It’s a great opportunity to meet people from other areas and a terrific chance to gain an understanding of the scope and quality of the research conducted every day at OHSU. There are a number of ways volunteers can help, please read more about these various opportunities below.

Check-in Desk
As a Check-in Desk volunteer, you are tasked with greeting attendees and checking in presenters.

Poster Wrangler
It’s the Poster Wrangler’s job to see that posters are put up in the right locations and to maintain a quite and respectful atmosphere in the room.

3MT Ballot Collector
Help collect the audience ballots for the “People’s Choice Award” at the end of the Three Minute Thesis Competition on Wednesday, May 7.

Moderator / Backup Moderator
Every oral presentation session will be assigned two volunteers: One Moderator, and one Backup Moderator. Moderators are needed to ensure that the pace of the oral presentation sessions are maintained, keeping presenters to their 10-minute time limit.

Go to the Research Week 2014 volunteer website to see what shifts are available, and to sign up to be a Research Week volunteer. All volunteers will get this year’s super stylish Research Week T-shirt in thanks of your efforts. Remember, you can choose as many shifts as you’d like!
