Junior researchers and community members

ETHOS Lab is looking for members who are interested in contributing to the work we do in the lab and building the community. At the same time, we offer members a chance of developing their skills and competencies. At ETHOS, we view members as competent individuals with unique sets of skills, and we strive to engage members in activities that suit their interests and skill sets.

There are two ways you can become affiliated with ETHOS Lab. You can become a Junior Researcher or a Community Member.

Junior Researchers are students who do a project in the lab. They are assigned to a research projects within themes of their own choosing and they will receive supervision from a researcher from the research group. The project can be related to a course or an individual project or thesis for which the student will receive ECTS point, but it does not have to. As a Junior Researcher you are expected to spend a minimum of three hours a week in the lab working on the research project and attending the weekly staff meeting. In return you are given access to the lab’s resources and tools, expertise, workshops, insight into the internal workings of the lab and the chance to influence its development. 

Volunteers are students with an interest in doing voluntary work in the lab in order to get extra curricular activities on their CV. This could be gathering data from our social media platforms, helping us write the monthly newsletter etc. Volunteers will be invited to data sprints, social activities and other exclusive events we host in the lab. They are also welcome to use the lab facilities.

Community Members will be invited to data sprints, social activities and other exclusive events we host in the lab. Community Members are more loosely connected to the lab than the junior researchers, since they are not a part of the staff and they are not required to put in any hours in the lab. We invite you to become a community member if you share our interests in data, digital methods etc. and wish to gain insights into a research lab.

If either of these roles sound like something that would be interesting for you, send an e-mail to Marie Blønd at
