Eligibility for membership

Members of the Institute currently have links with the Department of Physics and Mathematical Physics. Any member of that department, and indeed a member of any University Department considered to have interests in common with the Institute, may apply to become a member of the Institute. Such members will be required to specify a fraction of their time which will be devoted to activities falling within the ambit of the Institute. Associate membership of the Institute may be granted to staff of other Universities where this will enhance the activities of the Institute. The Institute will work with the proposed University of Adelaide Institute of Theoretical Physics to promote cooperation in research and postgraduate training in those areas of common interest. The two Institutes may share resources where appropriate.
