Everyone involved in the Biomakespace is a volunteer and we welcome help with a whole range of tasks! From putting on training sessions to establishing new protocols to keeping the membership records up to date - if you have skills or would like to pick up some new ones, we'd love to hear from you.

Benefits of volunteering

  • Make the Biomakespace better. You'll have the gratitude of all the members who benefit from your hard work.
  • Shape the space. You'll have the opportunity to input into many decisions about the Biomakespace in a direct way.
  • Learn new skills. You can pick up many skills through undertaking different roles, such as gaining teaching exprience, valuable skills in business and fundraising and learning how to establish a lab and manage a scientific research project.
  • Have fun! 

Current Opportunities

Safety Officers - if you have experience in biosafety, chemical safety or other health and safety, we'd love to hear from you. These roles entail reviewing project proposals for the space, monitoring and updating safety policies and procedures and helping make sure everyone using Biomakespace is safe and happy!

Trainers - If you know any molecular biology, engineering or other skills that you'd like to share, we are looking for trainers to run introductory and advanced courses in the space. Great experience with teaching a diverse group of people in an informal setting.

Communications and fundraising - If you have a penchant for social media, writing grants or organising events, get involved with the fundraising and communications team.

Lab Design - if you like lab technology and equipment, help us source and commission new kit, design the space for optimum use and generally join in building a unique lab in a unique venue. 

If you are interested in any of the above, drop along to one of our events or contact us on info@biomake.space
