DPS 2022 FULL PROGRAM IS AVAILABLE
The full program for this fall’s DPS is available now! You can access it at this link: https://submissions.mirasmart.com/DPS54/Itinerary/EventsAAG.aspx, or through clicking the block schedule link on the meeting page. Once there, you’ll need to login with your DPS credentials (button on the top left of the page). From there you can browse specific sessions, look at abstracts, and create a personalized itinerary.
UPCOMING DEADLINES FOR DPS 2022
The DPS 2022 meeting is a little over a month away and we want to alert you to several upcoming deadlines:
- Aug 29: People presenting at DPS are expected to register by August 29. More information on the registration process can be found here:
- Sep 7: In order to secure your room at a reduced rate in one of the two conference hotels at DPS 2022, please make your reservation before September 7. Details about room bookings can be found here:
- Sep 7: If switching registration format from in-person to virtual, Sep 7 is the last day to request a refund.
HARTMANN STUDENT TRAVEL GRANT DEADLINE FOR DPS 2022 IS SEP 3
A generous contribution from William K. Hartmann, supplemented by member contributions and matching funds from the DPS Committee, has enabled a limited number of grants to support the participation of early-career scientists at the annual DPS meeting. The due date for applications this year is September 3rd, 2022 at 11:59 PM, PT. Application details can be found here: meetings/hartmann_travel_grant. Grants are primarily intended for students, but post-doctoral scientists without other means of support will also be considered.
Travel grants rarely exceed a few hundred dollars and are intended to provide a supplement that makes the difference on whether or not the person is able to attend the annual meeting. In some cases the travel grant may be requested to cover the meeting registration fee. Preference is given to students who have not received a Travel Grant in the past, and applications from both in person and virtual attendees are welcome. Questions may be directed to the DPS Vice Chair ([email protected]).
DPS 2022 DEPENDENT CARE GRANTS APPLICATIONS DUE SEP 8
The DPS Susan Niebur Professional Development Fund provides financial assistance to qualifying members of the DPS in order to facilitate their meeting participation by offsetting dependent care costs (such as childcare, elder care, spousal care, etc) at the meeting location, or at home, during the DPS conference week. This includes dependent care expenses needed to allow participation in the 2022 DPS meeting, whether you will be attending in-person or virtually.
The DPS Professional Development Subcommittee will accept applications for dependent care subsidies to assist an eligible DPS member to participate in the 2022 DPS Meeting. The initial submission deadline is Thursday, September 8, 2022. The review of submissions will begin September 9; however, further requests will be accepted and reviewed, funding and eligibility permitting.
Please access the grant application form at development#grants .

INAUGURAL DPS-NSBP SPEAKER PROGRAM TALK AT DPS 54: JASMINE BAYRON
The Professional Culture and Climate Subcommittee would like to highlight the inaugural talk of the DPS-NSBP Speaker program at this year’s Fall meeting of the DPS. Each year a selected speaker in the Earth and Planetary Systems Science track from the previous year’s NSBP annual conference will be invited to present their research to the DPS. This year Dr. Jasmine Bayron of the American Museum of Natural History will be presenting a talk entitled “the Solar System Family Tree: Simulations of Icy Chondritic Parent Body Interiors” in Wednesday morning’s “Meteoroids and Meteors” session. We look forward to seeing you there!
ARECIBO OBSERVATORY SUMMER 2022 NEWSLETTER NOW AVAILABLE
The Summer 2022 Arecibo Observatory Newsletter is now available! Each newsletter features science highlights and updates about the facility, staff, and education program. The newsletter includes articles and highlights about recent planetary science education and publications using Arecibo data:
- AO Radar Study of “Surprise” Asteroid 2019 OK
- New Study of Venusian Surface using Radar Data from Arecibo and Magellan Spacecraft
- Arecibo NSF REU Program 2022
- Arecibo Intern in Planetary Radar Group
- How the AO STAR Academy is solidifying “scientific identify” for Puerto Rican students
BECOME AN AAS BOOK AUTHOR — SEND YOUR IDEAS!
The AAS is looking to expand the AAS-IOP Astronomy eBook series and would welcome ideas from the community for new books including undergraduate/graduate course textbooks, and higher-level research and reference texts aimed at graduate students and researchers. If you have any book ideas, or would like to become a book author yourself, please contact the commissioning editor at IOP Publishing to discuss at [email protected].

PLANETARY IMPACTS COMMUNITY WIKI PROJECT
The purpose of this project is to promote collaborations and sharing of research and educational materials in the topics related to planetary impact processes. We hope that the connections nurtured through this project can enable community development and international connections.
The site includes an opt-in Community Directory to help students and researchers find scientists with specific expertise. You can support this project by contributing materials, becoming an editor, or advertising the site. The site will advertise new materials by an opt-in Newsletter and social media.
We plan to organize community meetings at upcoming conferences to discuss the needs of the planetary impacts community and potential community development projects.
Founding editors: Sarah Stewart, Terik Daly, Chris Cline, Angela Stickle, Phil Carter
JOB, POSITIONS, AND OPPORTUNITIES
A. Postdoc at JPL in Pasadena, CA, Cometary Comae
The postdoc will be involved in an effort to accurately retrieve the abundance and distribution of water in the coma of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasamenko to help us understand the physical processes driving outbursts and the formation and evolution of the coma. The postdoc will play a central role in modeling how small dust grains can radiatively “pump” gases in the coma to higher temperatures than expected from considerations of local thermal equilibrium, incorporating that model into an existing coma simulation, and then using that code to retrieve physical properties of the coma.
Successful candidate must have:
• Ph.D. in planetary science or a related field.
• Experience with observational or theoretical studies of comae.
• Familiarity with spectral observations.
Desired qualifications include:
• Experience with radio- or IR-wavelength observations.
• Familiarity with radiative transfer calculations and numerical modeling.
• Familiarity with systems in non-local thermodynamic equilibrium.
A complete description and instructions to apply are available at
This position is available immediately, and applications will be reviewed as they are received.
B. Several tenure track positions at the Space Telescope Science Institute
C. Tenure-track faculty position in planetary and space sciences, Georgia Tech
D. ESA Research Fellowships in Space Science
