Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers power our programs

The IRM relies on volunteers to help us share science in the Philadelphia community. We are always looking for faculty, postdocs, and students who want to contribute to our learning experiences. Volunteering is a great way to broaden the reach of your research and enhance your communication skills while making a difference.

If you are interested in presenting your research to a non-expert audience or assisting with one of our workshops, please review our current opportunities below or contact Jamie Shuda. Volunteers who will be working in-person with minors will need to complete appropriate clearances.

Virtual Volunteers

The IRM is looking for volunteers from all Perelman School of Medicine departments to take part in our virtual teaching with Philadelphia 4-12 graders. We are seeking volunteers interested in participating as a presenter or classroom helper. Your time can be as little as participating in one session or pre-recorded talk to assisting with the award-winning BioEYES program. If you would like to engage with our city’s awesome students and teachers, please complete this short UPenn Volunteer Survey 2020-2021.
