We ask that you:

  • Attend a 40-hour training course through Conflict Management@MIT

  • Commit approximately 5 hours a month on bioREFS-related activities including planning and hosting activities, consulting with members of the Biology community, and participating in allREFS meetings.

We typically accept applications for new members once a year, but feel free to contact us at any time if you think you might be interested. We are always happy to discuss our responsibilities and experiences as bioREFS!

We’re looking forward to reading your applications!
