MVZ Student and Volunteer Application
The following information is for individuals who are NOT UC Berkeley students. UC Berkeley students should visit the MVZ Undergraduate Opportunities page.
UC Berkeley retirement community members, please check out the UC Berkeley volunteer website.
Within the museum, volunteer opportunities may exist in many areas -- including specimen organization and preparation, archiving historical materials, GIS work, public outreach projects, administrative assistance, and more. In addition, individual researchers affiliated with the museum sometimes take on volunteers as lab/research assistants.
If you are interested in volunteering to work in the museum, please
- Complete the MVZ Student and Volunteer Application - doing so will add you to the MVZ Undergraduate and Volunteer email list where volunteer projects are posted throughout the year as they become available
- Contact directly the MVZ faculty, research staff/manager, postdoc, and/or graduate student that you are interested in working with and let them know that you are interested in volunteering. When you do, you should also let them know that you have already completed the MVZ Student and Volunteer Application.
