PhysPAG Executive Committee Nominations extended to 30 November 2023

The Astrophysics Division of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) is pleased to issue an open call for nominations, including self-nominations, to serve on the Executive Committee (EC) of NASA’s Physics of the Cosmos Program Analysis Group (PhysPAG). NASA anticipates making multiple new appointments to the PhysPAG EC in order to replace several current members who will be rotating off the committee. Appointments will be for a nominal period of three calendar years for each selected candidate.

Key skills include good communication, a desire and ability to facilitate community organization and collaboration, and a broad perspective across the PhysCOS disciplines. Knowledge of technology additionally helps support PhysCOS technology objectives, including clarifying technology gaps; selection will consider a balance of members with expertise in technology and in other areas. With NASA’s implementations of the Astro2020 Decadal Survey and its strong recommendations in the area of PhysCOS science well underway, it is more important than ever to maintain a strong connection between NASA and the astrophysics community to ensure ongoing meaningful and strong community inputs.

Nominations, including self-nominations, are due 30 November 2023. Please see the Dear Colleague Letter for a detailed description of this opportunity, including the deadline and how to apply for membership on the EC.
