ERIM Associate Membership


ERIM Associate Membership is designed as a means of providing access to ERIM benefits and facilities to recent PhDs, particularly those on tenure-track contracts, who do not as yet qualify for regular ERIM Membership.

Who

Untenured faculty at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) / Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) with a designated research task and an appointment of at least 0.2 fte for two years from the date of application for membership.

Tasks

  • Carrying out and disseminating high-quality research;
  • Actively initiating external funding initiatives to seek early career grants (NWO veni, Marie Curie);
  • Being actively committed to implementing ERIM’s strategic goals;
  • Actively and collaboratively participating in activities related to the ERIM research
    programme.

Benefits

These are identical to the benefits of an ERIM Member.

Duration

Maximum of five years. In special circumstances (maternity leave, parental leave, long-term illness), the duration can be extended.

Criteria

  • PhD degree acquired less than five years prior to the date of application for ERIM Membership.
  • A research proposal containing a detailed work- and publication plan, which aims to satisfy the criteria for regular ERIM Membership at the end of the Associate Membership period.
  • Recent PhDs on a tenure-track contract have a “grace period” of three years from the date of application for ERIM Membership. After this grace period, ERIM evaluates the status of all publications (rejection, revise-resubmit, conditional acceptance, forthcoming). The associate membership will be continued if measurable progress on obtaining the regular membership status is shown.
  • Recent PhDs on other contracts (e.g. post-docs or researchers appointed in externally financed projects) have a “grace period” of two years from the date of application for ERIM Membership. After these two years, their ERIM Associate Membership will be continued only if measurable progress on obtaining the regular membership requirements can be shown. An example of this is a (formally accepted/forthcoming) publication in an ERIM P or P* journal.
