The International Physics Olympiad will take place in Lisbon in July 2018. We are seeking volunteers mainly to work as team and leader guides, and as assistants to the academic committee. As a volunteer you should be 18 years old by the time of the IPhO, have a sufficient command of English and Portuguese, be dedicated, responsible and ready to commit yourself for the duration of the entire IPhO.
The team and leader guides will represent the organisation, and will accompany and guide the students or leaders of the approx. 90 delegations. The guides should enjoy intercultural exchange, be resilient, and have a solution-oriented service mentality. It is not required for the guides to be physics students.
The academic assistants will assist the Academic Committee setting-up the exam. They will be in the background helping the smooth running of the event. The role as an academic assistant might be of interest to former participants of international olympiads (physics or otherwise).
The volunteers will only choose their preferred role in the organisation at a later stage, after an interview an training.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the IPhO 2018, please fill in this form.
