Research Week 2018 is less than a week away, and we still have many volunteer and judging slots to fill. Volunteers play a critical role in making Research Week a success — we couldn’t do it without you! Judges provide valuable feedback to presenters and help select this year’s presentation winners. Judges – visit the judging sign-up page for a full listing of session dates, times, and research topics that need coverage.
Research Week 2018 is April 30 to May 2!
Anyone at OHSU can volunteer. Faculty, postdocs, and research staff can all serve as judges. 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:
- Registration desk: Check in participants, hand out judging packets, and help direct attendees
- Oral Session Moderator: Keep sessions running smoothly by introducing each speaker and keeping track of time
- Laptop Wrangler: Make sure that laptops for oral presentations are ready to go before each session
- Poster wrangler: Check-in poster presenters and direct them to their display board. Help transition from the Poster Session A to Session B by taking down Session A posters and putting up Session B posters for display
Volunteers – See what shifts are available and sign up. Remember, you can choose as many shifts as you’d like!
