Voluntary Research Writers With Scientific Backgrounds
The New Zealand Anti-Vivisection Society (NZAVS) is New Zealand’s primary non-profit organisation defending animals used in science. Our aim is to end animal experimentation and the harmful use of animals for research, testing and teaching in Aotearoa – for animals, humans and science.
We are seeking committed volunteers, with demonstrated desk research skills, with an understanding of medical research and terminology, strong writing skills, and analytical skills to carry out various research projects.
We are looking for a minimum of two volunteers to help us with the following:
1. Building a new case studies section for our website to help highlight how animals are used in research, testing and teaching in New Zealand.
2. Compiling a list of case studies of New Zealand research utilising ethical and modern methods without animals.
3. Compiling a list of non-animal-based methods that can be used to train vet students.
4. Other general volunteer work like fact-checking, reference checking and offering scientific advice.
You will have the ability to read scientific publications and transpose the key points into case studies targeted at a non-scientific audience. Ideally, you will hold a minimum of an undergraduate scientific qualification and/or employment in the medical or research industry.
If you are committed to advancing modern, ethical and effective medical research and replacing the use of animals in research, testing and teaching, volunteering at NZAVS will enable you to directly contribute to progress in this area.
