Get involved

Help students have more impact with their research careers as a coach, volunteer, mentor or academic supervisor to students.  

 

Get involved 

There are various ways you can get involved with our work besides applying for our coaching if you’re a student. Please reach out to us if you’re interested in any of the roles below! 

Join our coaching team

Our coaches help students reflect on and clarify what research direction is the best fit for them, offer useful resources such as tools for doing impactful research, and connect students with experts in their field. If you’re interested in volunteering to coach our students we’d love to hear from you. Email vorathep.sachdev@effectivethesis.org for more information.

Join our network of experts

Our experts provide valuable guidance to students interested in their field of research. An expert might offer feedback on a research proposal, have a one-off call with a student to discuss their ideas, or provide ongoing mentorship throughout the thesis-writing process — the role is very flexible and you can choose the level of commitment. Please get in touch if you’d like to join our network.

Supervise students or recommend supervisors

If you are potentially interested in supervising students working on one or more of our research directions, please let us know — we are always glad to hear of new supervisors. Likewise if you’ve had a positive experience with a supervisor who you think would supervise students working on at least one of our research directions, you can let us know via the same form.

Join our Early Career Research Opportunities Team

Our Early Career Research Opportunities volunteers scan the EA and academic ecosystem for opportunities relevant to students who use our services and add them to our database. For more information see the role description here

Let us know about opportunities you would like us to share

If you know of opportunities relevant to our recommended research directions that you would like more students to hear about, please send them to adela.novotna@effectivethesis.org.

Contribute to our research profiles

If you have an academic background related to any of the research profiles featured on our site and you’re interested in helping to make them more detailed and up-to-date, please get in touch with sophie.kirkham@effectivethesis.org.

Let others know about us

If you know anyone who will be writing a thesis soon, or who might be interested in working with the students we coach, please tell them about us!
