Grad student opportunity to participate in the Planetary Decadal Survey

June 29, 2009

The Planetary Science Decadal Survey extends an invitation to graduate students to act as observers/rapporteurs during meetings of the Planetary Science Decadal Survey’s Steering Group and its five Panels. These notes will be posted on the decadal survey’s website for use by survey members and the larger planetary science community. Attending a meeting will give students the unique opportunity to experience an insider’s view of the activities of Planetary Science Decadal Survey; plus the opportunity to interact with committee members, briefers and agency officials. The SSB is not able to provide travel or lodging expenses. However, students will receive a small honorarium as well as meals during the meetings. Please note that students will need to sign a non-disclosure agreement to participate in closed sessions. More information, including the application procedure and list of meeting dates and locations, can be found at:

    Looks like women are pretty well represented – and there is a good age range too.

    I would love to be a notetaker at one of these but they are all too far from me (St. Louis) and thus too expensive for travel and lodging… I guess that is what I get for not living on a coast! šŸ™‚
