Since May 26, 2000 Mikhail Kovalchuk has been an Associate Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences in physics.
Since February 2005 he has been the Director of the Kurchatov Institute.
In June 2007 by a decision of the Russian Academy of Sciences Presidium Mikhail Kovalchuk was appointed acting vice-president of the Academy for nanotechnology. As the Academy Charter stipulates that only full members are eligible for vice-presidency, Kovalchuk, being an associate member, can only be acting vice-president, unless the charter is modified or he is elected full member.
The RAS rejected Kovalchuk's application for full membership in May 2008.
