NMC Affiliation

The NMC Affiliate Program organizes the capabilities of the partnership into a common strategic effort, streamlines the process of pursuing collaborative research and facilitates efficent execution of joint programs.

NMC offers affiliation to researchers with qualifications and interests that complement and strengthen NMC's technical focus areas and an interest in supporting our mission to pursue cross-institutional, cross-disciplinary research. Affiliated Researchers

  • provide intellectual leadership for NMC/LANL joint initiatives and lead NMC research efforts.  
  • participate in the development of a joint strategy for the partnership and the execution of that strategy, and
  • participate in NMC program development, research and educational activities. 

Affiliated researchers are eligible to work on non-NMC research activity in NMC facilities through a Facility Access Agreement with the NMC. 


Getting Started

Researchers interested in an NMC affiliation should contact Steve Buelow (buelow@newmexicoconsortium.org) or Irina Izvekova (izvekova@newmexicoconsortium.org).

For Partner Universities

Faculty and students from NMC partner universities (NMSU, NMT and UNM) may apply for a small domestic travel grant for the development of new collaborative research and education programs to build collaborations with LANL and other institutions within the partnership.
