Full membership can apply to faculty members with a research appointment at one of NeSCoR’s home institutions, provided they have obtained a Ph.D. and have fulfilled the criteria for full membership.
NeSCoR may occasionally also allow faculty members with a research appointment at other academic institutions than those associated with NeSCoR, in which case the same provisions apply.
This applies to researchers with a research appointment at one of NeSCoR’s home institutions but: who have finished their Ph.D. less than three years ago, or who did not have an academic research appointment for the last three calendar years. Associate membership can last for a maximum of three calendar years, including the year in which the research appointment started.
This membership category accredits researchers for their contribution to the NeSCoR research. Fellowship may arise from a longstanding collaboration with of the NeSCoR research groups or be awarded after retirement.
