Volunteer Opportunities at the MRS Spring Meeting

MRS Meeting Scene—Call for Reporters and Bloggers

MRS Meeting Scene | Call for Reporters and Bloggers

Graduate students and post-docs who are interested in contributing to the 2024 MRS Spring Meeting Scene newsletter and the Meeting Blog, either in person or virtually, are encouraged to apply.

Reporters will be required to attend talks in a variety of symposia and write brief summaries (100-250 words) of four talks each day; bloggers will be required to post at least five items per day and also tweet about their experiences at the Meeting. Reporters and Bloggers will have their registration reimbursed up to the Student Rate. In addition, in-person volunteers will receive a stipend of $50 toward their onsite expenses.

To apply, please send an email to newseditor@mrs.org stating your qualifications and your reasons for wanting to report or blog for us. We need only four reporters and four bloggers, so we will not be able to accept everyone who applies. Apply now! We look forward to hearing from you.
