Vollmitglieder

Volle iDiv-Mitglieder sind zunächst diejenigen Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler, die gemeinsam das DFG-Forschungszentrum beantragt haben. Darauffolgend wurde und wird führenden Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern der deutschen Wissenschaftsgemeinde die Mitgliedschaft angeboten. Das wichtigste Element, um ein erfolgreiches Zentrum aufzubauen, und um dessen Mission zu erfüllen, ist eine kritische Masse international renommierter Wissenschaftler, die (i) die treibende Kraft für das Voranschreiten der deutschen Biodiversitätsforschung waren, (ii) auf erfolgreiche Zusammenarbeit in diesem Forschungsfeld zurückblicken können, (iii) ein Spektrum an wissenschaftlicher Expertise abdecken, um den Standort iDiv mitzugestalten und (iv) über Erfahrung in Biodiversitätsinformatik, Ökologiesynthese und Theorieentwicklung verfügen. Gegenwärtig zählt das iDiv 116 volle Mitglieder (siehe unten). Sie tragen gemeinsam Verantwortung für die Gestaltung des Zentrums, u.a. durch die Teilnahme im sDiv Exekutivkommittee, in der IPBES Kontaktgruppe, im Datenkomitee, in der Lehre (Promotionsgutachten und Berufungskommissionen, gemeinsame Kurse) und im Rahmen anderer Funktionen. Personen, die sich für einen sDiv Workshop bewerben, können sicher sein, dass wenigstens eines dieser Mitglieder teilnehmen wird.

Assoziierte Mitglieder

Assoziierte Mitglieder sind definiert als Personen, die a) in einem iDiv Komitee involviert sind, aber weder iDiv-Mitarbeiter, noch volle Mitglieder sind und die b) iDiv verlassen haben, aber gerne in engem Kontakt zum Forschungszentrum bleiben möchten, etwa aufgrund ihres besonderen Einsatzes und der Zeit, die sie iDiv-Projekten gewidmet haben. Sie dürfen iDiv-Einrichtungen, -Daten und -Plattformen nutzen. Sie werden außerdem zur Mitgliederversammlung eingeladen, jedoch ohne ein Wahlrecht inne zu haben. Sie können keine Mittel aus dem Flexible Pool beantragen. Assoziierte Mitglieder werden durch das Direktorium auf Anfrage der jeweiligen Person hin bestimmt.
