Announcement: SBAG Early-Career Travel Support and Lightning Talks

The next meeting of the Small Bodies Assessment Group will be held at the Lunar and Planetary Institute on January 29-31, 2019. We want to make you aware of some opportunities for students and early-career scientists and engineers. Please pass along to relevant colleagues/students.

Early career travel support: We are planning to offer limited U.S. travel support for early career scientists to participate in the SBAG 20 meeting, to be held at the Lunar and Planetary Institute on January 29-31, 2019.  Interested undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, and other early career scientists (within 5 years of PhD/MS/BS) should submit a letter and a CV to SBAG Early Career Secretary Hannah Susorney ([email protected]) by COB (5 pm Eastern time) November 21st 2018. Included in the letter, which must not exceed 2 pages, should be a demonstration of financial need and an explanation of how the applicant’s work relates to the purposes of the SBAG. The letter and CV should be combined into a single PDF document for submission by e-mail attachment.  Recipients of travel support will be expected to give a short presentation (~10-15 minutes) of their SBAG-relevant work at the SBAG 20 meeting.

Lightning Talks/Poster Session: We are providing time on the agenda for early-career scientists and engineers present at the meeting to introduce themselves and their research to the community. Lightning talks will be 3 minutes each, with the possibility of a small poster session to showcase your work. If you are interested in participating in lightning talks, please contact the early-career secretary Hannah Susorney ([email protected]) before January 18th 2019 to secure a spot.
