Judging in iGEM is a lot of fun, but it does require a strong commitment. iGEM teams work incredibly hard on their projects over the summer, so we need judges who are also committed to work hard to evaluate them. If you can spend time learning about the judging process during the summer, evaluating team wikis the week before the Jamboree, and attending the Jamboree in September, we would love to have you on board!
We need judges who understand iGEM, and judges who are willing to learn about iGEM. We will provide educational resources to help judges learn how to evaluate teams, and we will help you get up to speed if you are selected.
Please email kim [AT] igem [DOT] org if you have questions!
If you have colleagues who you think should apply, please feel free to direct them to this form.
We're looking for:
iGEM instructors and advisors
People who have judged iGEM in the past
People in the synthetic biology industry
Synthetic biology researchers who are new to iGEM
iGEM alumni who want to stay involved
If you are a student on a 2017 iGEM team, you can't apply to be a judge this year. But you can apply when you graduate and become an iGEM alum!
The first round of judges have been anounced! The judging application form is still open and we will anounce the second round in the beginning of July, so apply now!
NEW: Instructor judges will receive a 50% discount on their Jamboree attendance fee!
