Step 1 of 4: Identifying Information

This email will be used to add you to the WISER Network Internal Email List (WISER Google Group)

Step 2 of 4: Verification of Research Status

Please provide one of the following options to verify your status and research: (this is required)
contact information for research supervisor who produces peer-reviewed publications, has academic freedom and independence from bodies who fund their work.
contact information for collaborator on a research project who produces peer-reviewed publications, has academic freedom and independence from bodies who fund their work.

Step 3 of 4: Sustainable Energy Criteria

WISER welcomes members who fit two broad criteria into our membership: 1) academic researchers and 2) sustainable energy transitions focus.

We define academic researchers as those who produce peer-reviewed publications, have academic freedom and independence from bodies who fund their work. We acknowledge that academic career paths are not always linear, particularly for those who identify as women. While the norm is likely that members will either hold or be working toward a doctorate, and will hold a position at an academic institution, this may not always be the case. Career paths differ between countries and we are aware that many women with PhDs may be working outside academia for a short time with a view to returning. In the latter case, please indicate this intent/aim to return in your membership application if you aren’t affiliated with a university currently.

We also require that researchers in the network share a commitment to inclusive sustainable energy transitions and our values as defined above. As such, we welcome academic researchers who focus on any aspect of the energy system, from any disciplinary orientation as long as they meet this criterion. For example, a researcher could potentially be exploring both clean energy opportunities as well as challenges in the fossil fuel sector; however, the intent should not be to reinforce unsustainable energy development trajectories but to transition away from high carbon sectors.
