The membership policy is designed to encourage new staff to aim for membership within as short a timeframe as possible. Whilst not having a record of publications with Graham Centre affiliation or external research income with CSU or DPI does preclude individuals from meeting the requirements of full or associate membership in the short term, we encourage those people to apply for affiliate status (citing previous history, future intentions in your role at CSU/DPI, clear links to the Centre’s research priorities and so on). As soon as you can demonstrate meeting criteria, you should apply for associate or full membership status.
For DPI researchers, affiliate status alone won’t allow you to register your publications in the CSU Research Outputs Collection, so you will also need to apply for Adjunct status with CSU through the Centre. Below is a link to information about the Adjunct appointments policy at CSU. If you wish to apply for adjunct status, please contact email@example.com.
