If you want to join the OCNS and you think that you qualify for that, please read our Bylaws and then fill out and submit a Membership Application.

We have three categories of membership with different dues:

  • Student
  • Postdoc
  • Faculty.


Apply Now for Membership

Anybody who is presently studying for an undergraduate or graduate degree is a student. Anybody who is employed as a researcher and has a PhD degree is a postdoc. Independent investigators, laboratory heads, university faculty, people employed in industry and all holding equivalent positions should pay the faculty rate. Professionals not employed as researchers can use the postdoc membership during their first five years of employment after obtaining their degree and should use the faculty membership afterwards. Contact us if you believe that special circumstances prohibit you from paying the full dues. 

After submission of this application, the OCNS board reviews it. A few days afterwards you receive an approval mail (in case you are approved), and then you can proceed to pay your dues. This will unlock your account for the OCNS web site.

Please note: before approval and payment of membership dues you cannot login to this site.
