LSST Galaxies Membership Application
Application Process and Eligibility Criteria
The LSST Galaxies Science Collaboration (LSSTGSC) accepts applications from eligible scientists who have rights to LSST data and are active in extragalactic research. Voting members in the collaboration hold permanent positions at research institutions, while eligible students and postdoctoral researchers may hold non-voting memberships. The LSSTGSC grants memberships based on the applicant's eligibility, their expected participation level, and their scientific interests related to the goals of the LSSTGSC.
The membership eligibility criteria are detailed in the LSSTGSC Charter, but eligible scientists include:
- All scientists employed or studying at institutions in countries with LSST data rights (e.g., Chile, US).
- Any individuals specifically listed in signed Memoranda of Agreement with the LSST Corporation, and their Designees.
- Scientists employed by the LSST Project
- Members of institutions that have explicit data rights agreements with the LSST, such as IN2P3.
If you have questions about the application process, feel free to contact the LSSTGSC.
