Science Challenge 2024 - Call for volunteers


Thursday, January 4, 2024 - 11:00 to Friday, February 16, 2024 - 11:25


The Admissions and Outreach Section at OIST Graduate School is looking for volunteers who would be available to support us during the Science Challenge which is a 1-week workshop held from February 17th – 23rd, 2024.

During the workshop about 25 students in their bachelors and masters in STEM fields are visiting OIST from all over Japan and they will get the opportunity to learn more about OIST while attending lab tours and experiencing hands-on science in labs. In addition, a huge part of our program will consist of sessions covering the topic of science communication, as we want the participants to prepare and give a 3-minutes flash talk in English at the end of the workshop.

Support us with hands-on science activities, share your knowledge about poster presentation, essay writing or flash talk presentations with the participants or join a panel discussion about what is required to be successful as a PhD student / research intern at OIST. 

The whole workshop will be held in English, so Japanese language skills are not required for the tasks we need help with.

If you are interested in connecting with the workshop participants and to support us with the workshop, please fill out this registration form!
