The InSight Participating Scientist Program

Program element C.25 solicits investigations for the InSight Participating Scientist Program (PSP). The objectives of the program are to: enhance the scientific return from the InSight mission by
broadening participation in the mission, and augment the existing InSight science team to include new members conducting investigations that broaden and/or complement the funded InSight Principal Investigator (PI)-led investigations. The goal of the InSight PSP is to maximize the contribution of InSight to the future exploration and scientific understanding of Mars and the other terrestrial-type planets. Because the intention is to enhance and broaden the scientific
return and augment the existing science team, investigations submitted by the InSight Principal Investigator, Deputy Principal Investigator and Co-Investigators will not be considered.

Selected Participating Scientists (PSs) will become full members of the InSight science team and will work in a collaborative manner with other InSight science team members after selection. PSs will have the same rights and be required to fulfill many of the same responsibilities as
those of current science team Co-Investigators.

Mandatory NOIs are due January 11, 2018 and proposals are due February 15, 2018. For more details see:
