Do you mean a GP defined member function or a built-in member function ?

_.zk is a built-in member function. In libpari it is called member_zk (for nf,
you can use nf_get_zk()) instead.  

the following (untested) function should do what you want:

GEN fun(const char *s, GEN nf)
  return closure_callgen1(strtofunction(gsprintf("_.%s", s)), nf);
