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 two days (four half-day sessions), students will receive a complimentary student registration, a one-year MRS student membership commencing January 1, 2024, and limited financial assistance to help defray expenses. Positions are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. To learn more, read our graduate student testimonials.
