We will have a very limited number of spots for volunteers for the 2017 Champalimaud Research Symposium.

Volunteers will receive free entrance to the symposium, and will help with setup and tasks such as registration and site visits throughout the symposium days. It may be necessary for volunteers to miss a small part of the symposium programme due to their duties, but we will accommodate as much as possible your preferences as to which sessions you will miss.

Please note that since the set-up will happen in the days and weeks before the symposium, you MUST be available for some hours of work over the weekend beforehand (7th & 8th October), and ideally for dates before that as well. If you will not be available before the 7th October, please clearly state this in your application.

To apply for a volunteer position, please send a written paragraph/image/video or any other media describing yourself, your interest in the symposium and your motivation for volunteering, to, using the email subject “Volunteer Application”.

Applications for volunteers will close on the 15th June.
