Becoming a volunteer researcher

Research volunteers offer their time to help assist with projects that are being undertaken Woodbrooke’s Centre for Research in Quaker Studies (CRQS). This can range from sorting through material such as journal papers, transcripts, and writings to aid with archiving and access, to volunteering time to be interviewed for research or helping academic staff learn more about the life and practices of your Quaker community by helping us distribute survey’s and find participants. You can find out about our current research projects here. We will provide you with the tools and support you need to help with research, including ensuring compliance with guidelines and ethics. Voluntary research isn’t a replacement for paid academic roles at Woodbrooke or other institutions but is a way to give time to support your interests and our activity.
