Planetary Science Workforce Survey Announcement
Just how many planetary scientists are there working in the US?
And how did they get to their current positions?
The American Institute of Physics is conducting a NASA-sponsored survey of the workforce in planetary sciences. If you are a member of AGU, DPS/AAS, the Meteoritical Society or attend LPSC then you will likely receive an email request to fill in an online survey.
In the meantime, a survey of 48 US academic departments that include planetary science was completed this spring.
Description of the project and results of the department survey are posted here.
- Thanks to NASA for sponsoring this and Fran Bagenal for making it happen!
