Small Bodies Assessment Group (SBAG) Steering Committee Positions Open

We are soliciting up to five positions open on the Steering Committee of the Small Bodies Assessment Group (SBAG), with terms starting in August 2020.

The SBAG Steering Committee organizes SBAG meetings, writes the official SBAG findings, and takes a leadership role in other activities where community input on topics of interest is needed. The Steering Committee members should be as diverse as the community, in terms of topical interest (asteroids, comets, meteoroids, TNOs, KBOs, observational, experimental, computational, sample handling, etc.), demographics, experience, type of employer (commercial, small business, academia, government), and other parameters.

 We are looking for members with expertise in the following areas:

•        Human Exploration Lead – We desire an individual actively involved in, studying, and aware of Human Exploration and the current challenges and progress in this field to lead related SBAG activities

•        At-large members (2 to 4) – Any member of the small bodies community from any career stage is welcome to apply.

Terms are for three years. Application for Steering Committee Membership requires a) a two-page CV, which should include a description of participation in SBAG or other small bodies community organizations, and b) a short (one-page or equivalent) statement of interest. Previous participation in SBAG is preferred, but not required. To indicate your willingness to serve in any of these positions, please email Bonnie Buratti (bonnie.buratti@jpl.nasa.gov) by May 25, 2020, and include a two-page CV and your statement of interest. The current Steering Committee will select new members prior to the 23rd Meeting of SBAG, June 1-2, 2020.

Bonnie Buratti, SBAG Steering Committee Chair
