General Information

Applications for CEN membership must be sent by email to the secretariat of CEN at cen@cen.ulaval.ca.

Application to become a member

Applications should include the following :

  1. A cover letter stating the applicant's motivation to join CEN, past, current and upcoming collaborations with other CEN members and a description of how their research is linked or related to CEN's research themes;
  2. A letter of support from a regular member of CEN;
  3. A copy of the applicant's CV (eg. NSERC Form 100 is much appreciated since it describes the applicant's grants and lists her/her students).
  4. Membership category the applicant wishes to obtain (regular, associate or collaborator status).

Membership Categories

The membership categories below correspond to the new FRQNT rules and have been adopted by CEN members at the Annual meeting held on May 1, 2014 at La Pocatière.

Regular Member

A researcher from a university or research institution who is responsible or jointly-responsible for the scientific direction of one or several projects of a scientific  research program (full-time equivalent:  = 50%).

Collaborating Member A researcher from a university or research institution who oversees certain tasks pertaining to one or several projects of a scientific research program (full-time equivalent: 49% or less)

Researchers who are membres of a research group must generally devote most of their time to its research objectives. However, certain researchers may be part of more than one group. In these particular cases, the researchers must demonstrate the merit of these memberships and detail the type of participation and time that will be devoted to carrying out the activities with each group.

Evaluation of Applications

Applications are evaluated on a biannual basis in the months of May and November. The decision is communicated to the applicant by the scientific coordinator of CEN shortly after the meeting.
