Applying for LSST DESC Membership


The LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration welcomes new applications for Membership.

  • Please see the DESC Membership Policy to check your eligibility: you must have LSST data access rights in order to be granted membership of the DESC.
  • Being a Member of the DESC comes with some responsibility: please read our Code of Conduct, Governance Plan and Publication Policy to make sure that you will be able to agree to abide by them.
  • We accept applications via web application form, at the link below. It will ask you to briefly explain your expertise and proposed involvement with the DESC. The application will be considered by the DESC Membership Committee, which will strive to respond within a few days of receipt of the application.
  • Successful applicants will be added to the LSST Dark Energy Collaboration mailing lists and will get access to the wiki and discussion forums at SLAC.
