Review Panel Volunteers are Needed


NASA is looking for volunteers for review panels. Subject matter experts are needed to serve as mail-in reviewers of proposals and/or in-person reviewers to engage in discussions at a face-to-face panel meeting. New researchers (including post doctoral fellows) are welcome to apply as they provide fresh insight from people close to the most current research. Reviewers are needed for Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI), Planetary Science and Technology Through Analog Research, Earth Science Applications: Ecological Forecasting, 2016 Mars Data Analysis, and Concepts for Ocean Worlds Life Detection Technology. All the details are online.
