Volunteering with us

Are you into astrobiology, thinking about pursuing a career in this discipline, or just interested in learning more about this exciting field? Then, you have come to the right place! Take a step further in your career and join our team through our volunteering programme to gain skills and experience while working with lots of organisations and members of the community. Plus, you’ll meet other like-minded students to achieve something incredible, and have fun while you do!

The Society is run by a committee and volunteers that want to make a difference. We communicate through Slack, meet on Zoom and use Google Drive as our office space. You will be expected to dedicate 2-4 hours per week, on a flexible schedule basis. Alongside working, there are opportunities to chat with other volunteers and join events.

We are looking for someone comfortable working remotely, motivated, with team spirit and strong interpersonal skills. We want you to enjoy working with us and to give your input while gaining experience as a promising professional.
