MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR: YOM KIPPUR
The DPS Committee would like to offer our heartfelt apologies for scheduling the 2022 London DPS meeting over Yom Kippur. We have also realized that Yom Kippur starts on the last day of the meeting in 2024. Choosing these dates was an oversight on our part. It was unintentional and we are sorry for all the inconveniences it causes. We have instituted processes to ensure that this type of oversight does not happen again.
The SOC and LOC will accommodate requests of speakers who observe Yom Kippur not to be scheduled on those dates. In addition, there will be no virtual poster session on Yom Kippur.
The LOC will provide information regarding services at local synagogues for those wishing to observe the holiday.
With deepest apologies,
Diana Blaney, Chair, Division of Planetary Sciences
PROPOSALS DUE FOR WORKSHOP (JUL 8) AND SPLINTER MEETINGS (JUL 14)
Do you have an idea for a workshop and/or splinter meeting for our Fall DPS meeting? We are still accepting proposals for these side meetings. Please submit a request for your meeting at the link below.
Are you interested, but not sure which one to request? Read descriptions about both at the link above. It’s a great way to have a more focused gathering with your colleagues at the conference.
DPS ABSTRACTS ARE OPEN!
The deadline for submission is Jul 26.
An abstract (which will appear in the Meeting program) must be submitted for every presentation. There are 5 types of presentations for the Division for Planetary Sciences Meeting.
- Invited talk (Plenary or Prize)
- Research Contributed (including Dissertation talks)
You may present a maximum of four (4) abstracts from the above categories, selecting no more than one paper for any one category. This applies to in-person, fully remote and hybrid Meetings.
There is no limit to the number of abstracts that you may co-author. NOTE: The abstract body text can be a maximum of 2,250 characters (which includes letters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols/special characters).
Only speakers invited by the SOC may submit plenary talks.
REQUEST FOR SURVEY PARTICIPATION
My name is Alyvia Fondren, and I am an undergraduate student at Albion College in Michigan. I am working with Dr. Andrea Francis in the Psychology Department and Dr. Nicolle Zellner in the Physics Department to test models about women’s experiences with STEM mentors during their undergraduate experience at liberal arts colleges and large universities. Results will be used to guide the creation of mentorship programs for women in STEM.
The questionnaire covers possible mentorship you experienced as an undergraduate and the type of institution that you attended. Your participation is entirely voluntary and is expected to take no more than 15 minutes.

JOBS, POSITIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Open Rank Tenure-Track Faculty in Planetary Science, Pennsylvania State U.
The Department of Geosciences at The Pennsylvania State University, in University Park, PA invites applications for an Open-Rank, Tenure-Track or Tenured Faculty position in the field of Planetary Science.
The Department of Geosciences is part of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS) and, along with the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute (EESI), houses top-ranked research programs in geology, geophysics, geobiology, geochemistry, and interdisciplinary Earth systems research. Penn State’s Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics is home to similarly strong and relevant exoplanet research. Building on decades of involvement with NASA’s Astrobiology Program, Penn State recently formed the Consortium for Planetary and Exoplanetary Science and Technology, including the Planetary System Science Center (PSSC), as part of a commitment to expanding research in the planetary sciences. The successful candidate will be part of this growing and interdisciplinary community with opportunities for service and leadership to shape the future of the planetary fields and interdisciplinary research at Penn State. The position is a co-hire between the Department of Geosciences and EESI.
We seek a colleague who will develop a vigorous and externally funded research program, advance undergraduate and graduate education by teaching courses and providing research training, and work to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the geosciences.
The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. in a relevant field by the time of hire. While any and all areas of Planetary Science expertise are appropriate for this position, Penn State aims to expand involvement in the exploration of the solar system through NASA or international space missions. Connections to solar system exploration include a wide range of disciplines and research approaches, such as laboratory experimentation, analog research, computational research, remote sensing, instrument development, or through mission science team participation and leadership.
