Volunteer vacancy: Research mediation

Within the Research Mediation Program, OtherWise acts as a facilitator, connecting grassroots organizations and Wageningen students. We collect questions and topics from practitioners, help translate them into thesis or internship assignments and try to match these with interested students. We are looking for a volunteer to help with this task.

Your work would include:
- identifying organizations that fit the vision of OtherWise and our criteria for cooperation
- approaching them with the offer of research mediation services and maintaining these connections
- assisting with the formulation of thesis/internship projects
- disseminating these via our website and contacts with relevant chairgroups

Research mediation is an ongoing task, and therefore quite flexible for your involvement. Our idea is for the volunteer to dedicate about 2 hours per week, but this can be changed based on your needs, or combined with other tasks within the organization. Please send a short motivation to otherwise@wur.nl
