Students may volunteer in the laboratories for the academic year, the summer break, or both. Scientists at Wadsworth Center may accept high school students 16 years old or older as volunteers in their laboratories, although college-aged students 18 years old or older are more likely to find placement. Absolutely no one under 16 years of age is allowed to work or volunteer at Wadsworth Center.
If you wish to volunteer in a Wadsworth Center laboratory, please consult senior staff to identify a specific scientist whose research is of primary interest to you and contact that scientist directly either by telephone or e-mail. Alternatively, fill out and submit this application form, together with your resumé, via email to the address provided on the form and a scientist may contact you if s/he has an opening that matches your interests.
