Volunteers and judges still needed for Research Week 2017!

FPP 21469239 Research Week 2017 ART RGBResearch Week 2017 is now less than two weeks 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. 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:

  • 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
    This is not as scary as it sounds! Moderators are needed to ensure that the pace of the oral presentation sessions are maintained, keeping presenters to their 10-minute time limit.
