Symposium Assistant Positions

Graduate students who are interested in assisting in the symposium sessions during the 2017 MRS Fall Meeting are encouraged to apply for a symposium assistant position. Symposium assistants deliver essential meeting materials to the technical session rooms, monitor audio-visual equipment and room lighting, track and record attendance and perform other tasks requested by the session chairs. By assisting in a minimum of four half-day sessions, students will earn a complimentary student registration, a one-year MRS student membership commencing January 1, 2018, and a stipend to help defray expenses. Positions are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Applications are no longer being accepted.  However, you may stop at the Symposium Assistant Desk (Hynes Convention Center, Level 2, The Hub—Hall D) one-half hour prior to the beginning of the morning or afternoon symposium sessions, Monday through Friday, to ask if any positions have become available due to late cancellations or no-shows.
