Member status definition

 

Regular Member:

A regular member is an independent investigator (as defined by the FRQ-S) actively engaged in bio-imaging research. A regular member holds grants from recognized organizations, contributes to the training of graduate students and publishes in peer-reviewed journals. A researcher may become a regular member by completing the membership form online. The QBIN’s management assesses whether the application meets the criteria for regular membership. Regular members have access to all the programs put forward by the network and are entitled to vote at the general meeting of members.

 

Regular Member Emerging:

An emerging regular member is a researcher newly appointed to a position in an institution, actively engaged in bio-imaging research and largely meets the criteria for regular membership. A researcher may become an emerging regular member by completing the application form online and attaching a proof of appointment to a position. The QBIN’s management assesses whether the application meets the criteria for emerging regular membership. Emerging regular members have access to the programs for pilot projects put forward by the network and are entitled to vote at the general meeting of members. 

Validity: 2 years from the membership confirmation.

Associated Member:

An associate member is interested in the activities of QBIN but does not necessarily directly contribute to the training of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows or does not fulfill complete profile of an independent investigator. Associate members cannot directly apply to the financial support of the network, but can be co-applicant with a regular member in order to receive any form of financial support. The membership application for an associate member is online and is evaluated by the management of the network. An associate member is not entitled to vote at the general meeting of members.

Regular-Clinician Member:

A clinician who is already working with a researcher or member of QBIN and is interested in the activities of the network can complete an application form online. The application will be evaluated by the management of the network.

Student Member:

Graduate students or residents interested in research training activities of the QBIN are eligible to become student members of the network. Applications for students are available online and will be evaluated by the management of the network. Student members are not entitled to vote at the general meeting of members.

Research Staff Member:

Members of the research staff (HQP) recognized in the field of bio-imaging (eg. technologist, engineer, computer scientist, etc.) and are part of a team of QBIN researchers are eligible to become HQP members of the network. Applications are evaluated by the management of the network. HQP members are not entitled to vote at the general meeting of members.
