Volunteer Opportunities


We have an abundance of volunteer opportunities available here at Neuroscience. To successfully match you to the research and faculty that most interest you we have 6 areas of research for you to explore.

Brain Aging, Memory & Cognition

Neural Development & Psychiatric Disorders

Neural Injury, Trauma & Stroke

Neurodegenerative Disease

Neurobiology of Substance Use Disorders

Sensory Neuroscience, Pain & Perception

Review our Neuroscience areas of research, and find one or two that spark your interest. You will need to narrow down the scientists you would like to contact about working in their labs.  <Link to researchers coming soon>. Send a personal email directly to the professor, stating your interests in volunteering to assist with their research. Keep in mind that professors are more likely to provide opportunities to students who have taken time to gather a general knowledge of what their research is about.

Once you have communicated with the Neuroscience professor and they have expressed interest in you volunteering in their lab you are ready to apply to the department.

Start the application packet:

Gather up the documentation you will need.

First, head to MyTraining, log on and complete PBC810 and PRV800.  Take a screen shot of your training transcript after you have passed, to upload.

If you are a United States Citizen, take a photo of the front of your drivers license. If you are a Foreign National take a photo of your 1-94 front and back, EAD, 1-20 and/or DS2019 to upload.

Make sure you are cleared for campus by logging onto One.UF and checking your UF Health Covid-19 screening. Take a screenshot.
