Time Details:
5+ hours a week
Opportunity Description:
CELL Scholars (Cultivating Early Laboratory Learning) is a UCLA outreach program which aims to provide early exposure to scientific research and to increase diversity and inclusion in STEM. CELL Scholars provides paid research positions for high school students from underrepresented backgrounds to conduct research in UCLA laboratories during the school year. We are currently seeking undergraduate or graduate-level volunteers.

High school students are paired with a graduate student mentor to hone technical skills at the bench, learn coding skills for computational projects, and gain career and college advice from individuals in the field. Outside of the laboratory, workshops and seminars are held by UCLA graduate students and faculty to help students build critical skills for a career in STEM.

We are looking to recruit volunteers to serve on our Executive Board and for other leadership positions in our organization. Volunteers are encouraged to bring creativity and diverse perspectives to take an active leadership role in our organization. All levels of experience are welcome. Please reach out for further information and to schedule an onboarding meeting.
