Volunteers needed for Research Week 2017!

Research Week 2017 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:FPP 21469239 Research Week 2017 ART RGB

  • 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 3.
  • 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.

  1. Do volunteers get a T-shirt? Research Week T-shirts are the best.

  2. We are very sad to say that we don’t have t-shirts this year, due to cost containment. It’s sad!
