Volunteers needed for Research Week 2016!

ResearchWeekArt2106 FNL RGBResearch Week 2016 is less than a month away, 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 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:

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.

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 4.

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 2016 volunteer website to see what shifts are available and to sign up to be a volunteer. All volunteers will get this year’s super stylish Research Week T-shirt in appreciation of your efforts. Remember, you can choose as many shifts as you’d like!
