Benefits of IBACS Affiliate Membership

Affiliate membership is open to Faculty, Postdoctoral Researchers, and Graduate Students, whose research falls within the broad remit of the Institute’s research mission.

Becoming an affiliate gives you access to a number of IBACS resources:

  1. Ability to apply for IBACS funding opportunities (seed grant funding, meeting support awards, publication awards, travel awards, fellowships, and more!)
  2. Graduate affiliates have access to workspace at the Institute
  3. You can receive support on submitting external grant applications (including pre- and post-doctoral fellowships):
    1. An internal support and review process
    2. Budgetary information
    3. Inter-departmental and inter-institutional arrangements
  4. Your name will feature on our membership list, including photograph, research interests, and contact details
  5. You will be notified of, and invited to, IBACS networking and other events
  6. You will become a member of the IBACS listserv

In return, we will ask that you list the Institute as a secondary affiliation (e.g. “Prof. D. Thomas, Department of Cytoarchitectonics and Institute for Brain and Cognitive Science”).

We may also call on you to take part in our review panel. Members of this panel are appointed for one academic year and are called upon to review our applications for funding relevant to their field(s).

The application for affiliate membership is located here, and entries will be evaluated for fit to the Institute’s research mission.
