Current opportunities

We’re currently recruiting for the following volunteer opportunity, and would love for you to get involved! Please click on the role below to find out more information, including how to apply and who to contact if you have questions.

At FRAME, we’re working hard to educate future scientists by producing resources around animal use in science and opportunities to replace them. As a result, we’re putting together a group of people to form an education working group to review resources as they’re produced from school age up to PhD level. You’d be involved in reviewing a resource then sharing your feedback, informing us of whether the resource achieves its intended purpose and how it could be improved. Right now we are looking for secondary or college science teachers and students studying for GCSE, A-levels and undergraduates in a biology based subject.

At 1 – 2 hours of volunteering a month, this role would be perfect for people who want to expand on their understanding of animal replacement in science, while contributing to a world where scientific progress doesn’t come at the cost of animal suffering.

Estimated hours: Approx. 1 – 2 hours a month

Duration: Ongoing

Location: Remote

Renumeration: The role is unremunerated

Experience desired: We are looking for two types of people:

  • students aged 16-17 with an interest in studying biology
  • science lecturers or teachers who teach students ages 14-18

If you don’t fit fully into one of the above groups but think that your input would be beneficial in this role, please still register your interest.

Deadline: We’re eager to begin this project and will be reviewing expressions of interest as they come in. To register your interest or if you have any questions, please send an email to our Fundraising and Volunteer Coordinator, Sophie, at When registering your interest, please specify which role(s) you are interested in and attach ONE of the following: CV, LinkedIn profile, or a brief summary of your skills and experience.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with FRAME!
