Would you like to get involved with SciStarter?

Occasionally, we’ve received emails from people who want to volunteer at SciStarter in some capacity. Some of these people volunteered their way into paid positions, earned service hours or other credits, leveraged their experiences and new contacts  to launch careers, or still volunteer with us (after many years). Of course, some folks never made it to the start line, but c’est le vie.

SciStarter is a distributed entity, which basically means that volunteers and staff work from wherever they want unless we are organizing an event and need to be in a particular location.

Are you interested in getting involved with SciStarter? We hope so, because we are stronger, together!  Please complete this form to tell us about your interests and someone will get back to you shortly.

Cheers!
