Associated group leaders are employed by other departments but interact strongly in their research projects with research groups at UPSC. They take benefit from the UPSC scientific environment and infrastructure.
New associated research group leaders are proposed to the UPSC board which takes the final decision. Prerequisites are that the group has strong collaborations with researchers at UPSC and a good research profile that complements research at UPSC.
In return, UPSC is expecting that associated research group leaders mention UPSC as second affiliation on all publications that are resulting from collaboration with UPSC and/or for which UPSC’s infrastructures were used. Moreover, associated researchers are expected to present an overview about their research on the UPSC homepage and give an introductory talk at UPSC.
