Call for Nominations to Serve on the Executive Committee (EC) of NASA’s Physics of the Cosmos Program Analysis Group (PhysPAG)

Dear Physics of the Cosmos (PhysCOS) community members:

The Astrophysics Division of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate 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, or PhysPAG. In the coming months, 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 the release of the Astro2020 Decadal Survey and its strong recommendations for NASA in the area of PhysCOS science, it is more important than ever to maintain a strong connection between NASA and the astrophysics community to ensure that NASA’s implementation of the recommendations benefits from strong community input.

We're seeking new members for the PhysPAG Executive Committee, to begin in 2023. See the Dear Colleague Letter for a more full description of this opportunity, including the deadline and how to apply for membership on the EC.

Wishing you the best,

Dr Francesca Civano & Dr Brian Humensky
PhysCOS Chief Scientists, NASA GSFC
Dr Bernard Kelly
PhysCOS Support Scientist, NASA GSFC
