Volunteering

Can I volunteer or intern with BioSCAN?

We have found that the time commitment required for effective volunteering in this project usually does not work well with most people’s schedules.

Because there is extensive training necessary in order to be able to accurately and efficiently process samples and sort insects, it turns out that people who work with us for less than about 15 hours per week never really become productive for the project.

Because of that, we rarely are able to take in volunteers who wish to work with the project.
