The NMC's Service Affiliate and Intern Program recruits motivated and talented individuals who are interested in volunteering their time to work on significant projects. Service Affiliates may be retired scientists, university and high school students, or individuals wanting to make a career change. Service Affiliates join the NMC to understand specific scientific research, to acquire hands-on experience in laboratory research, or to enrich their education. If you have interest in serving through the NMC, you too can be involved!
Research and Research Support
The NMC offers unpaid service positions ranging from administration to technicians to researchers. Since NMC makes a significant investment defining, training and managing these positions, those interested must apply through our service program on a competitive basis for a limited number of positions. We require a minimum commitment of 25% level of effort for one year. Depending on the work being done, the NMC may provide OSHA training as well as further training for specific techniques.
Outreach and Community Development
One of the great features of the NMC is our ability to invite the community in and share what we do. NMC Docents act as ambassadors, providing tours and information and sharing our research with the public.
The NMC offers intern positions to upper level high school and college students. These positions are generally unpaid unless funded as a part of a special program. These positions provide invaluable work experience to motivated young people.
