Be a Reviewer

May 5, 2009

If you’re looking for experience as a member of a review panel (as many of us discussed at the recent LPSC), this week’s Planetary Exploration Newsletter has news for you!

[NASA] INVITATION TO BE A PROPOSAL REVIEWER FOR THE PLANETARY DIVISION

The Planetary Science Division encourages scientists, especially early
career researchers, to volunteer to be reviewers. To volunteer please
send a brief description of your areas expertise and/or names of ROSES
programs which you feel most qualified to review, and a short CV to:
SARA@nasa.gov .

Go for it!

    I should have noted something very important on this topic … this announcement was made AS A DIRECT RESULT of the conversation had at our breakfast at LPSC. NASA is listening … and it’s all good.

    Oh, and it isn’t just for planetary programs. You can volunteer for ANY SMD program by emailing SARA.

    And FYI, I KNOW that they are paying attention to this at NASA. They really DO want names.

    But also, please be cognizant of the conflict of interest rules. If you are submitting a proposal to a program this year (or serving as a Co-I), don’t ALSO volunteer to serve as a panelist. Or if it is a small program and you know the colleague down the hall is submitting, you probably won’t be called to serve either (bigger programs have more flexibility in avoiding conflicts).
