CERF 2019 Student Work Opportunities

Student Worker opportunities are now closed.

As a CERF Student Worker, you will exchange a few hours of your time for a reimbursement of $180 for conference registration fees. By serving as a Student Worker, you get the benefits of attending the conference with little or no fee, meet and network with hundreds of students and professionals in estuary and coastal science, and a cool CERF Student Worker t-shirt! 

Each Student Worker is required to work shifts adding up to a minimum of six hours total in order to be eligible to receive your reimbursement check. There are many different volunteer roles, ranging from being an art docent for CERF’s invited artists display, to helping at the registration desk, or serving as a room monitor during oral sessions.  

Apply to be a student worker during online registration. Applications must be received by 6 August.

Wanted! Experienced CERF Attendees and First Timers at Any Point in Their Career

The CERF 2019 organizing committee is offering the Meeting Mentoring Program at the conference. The program will match up mentors—senior graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and venerable clams (long-time ERF-CERF members) with mentees—students, early career professionals, first-time CERF attendees and international attendees.

The purpose? To help new-comers to CERF make the most of the biennial conference. Mentors provide guidance by contacting their mentee prior to the conference to introduce themselves, offer suggestions about preparing a plan to get to the right sessions, posters, and exhibits; and help and connect them with people who can help guide them in furthering their careers.
