Early Career Participant Support: Outer Planets Assessment Group
NASA’s Outer Planets Assessment Group (OPAG) will provide travel grants for a limited number of interested Early Career participants to attend the OPAG meeting August 20-21 in Boulder, Colorado.
OPAG plays a key role in sculpting the planetary science community’s input into NASA activities for outer planets science and exploration. Thus it is critical for Early Career scientists to attend these meetings both to learn how NASA and Planetary Science programs operate and to represent the community that will work on OPAG-relevant projects in the coming decade.
In addition to the OPAG meeting, Early Career travel awardees can also participate in the OPAG Subsurface Needs for Ocean Worlds Meeting (SNOW) on August 19 prior to OPAG.
Selected individuals will present a poster at the meeting on a topic of their choosing. Interested graduate students, postdocs, and other Early Career scientists (within 5 years of PhD/MS/BS) should submit a one-page letter of interest and a CV to morgan.l.cable “at” jpl.nasa.gov by August 1, 2019.
Recipients will be notified by August 5, and will receive support for hotel and transportation costs. For more information, email Morgan Cable at the address above.
