2020-7-30: University Outreach Day with Navy Tech Bridge Partners -(Capital area Navy labs) – 5 August at 2 PM

The NavalX National Capital  Area Tech Bridge partners are presenting a University Collaboration Information session on 5 August at 2 PM.  Zoom details are below.  This session will feature information on existing student intern and faculty opportunities with deadlines and links.  The aim is to get ahead of the curve on these programs this year, recognizing the time challenges we all are facing.  There will also be a brief introduction to each of the lab partners with the goal of encouraging collaboration in all forms.  The seminar will be appropriate for interested faculty and administers and for prospective interns.  Note that none of the programs will be gone over in detail and many are run by ONR and OSD, so folks will be directed to the correct information to move forward.

The 5 August event is being run by NavalX over Zoom.  The link below can be used by anyone. There is a simple registration so it is best to try it out prior to the event.  You will probably see more publicity on this.

2020-6-16: LunGradCon Call for Abstracts

We represent the NASA SSERVI Lunar and Small Bodies Graduate Conference (LunGradCon), a conference designed to give grad students, undergraduates, and early career postdocs studying small, atmosphere-less bodies in our solar system and beyond. The conference provides these students the opportunity to present their research in a low-stress environment composed entirely of their own student peers. These peers then provide feedback to help the presenter give more effective talks in the future. This year we will also be featuring Q&A panels designed to help students find careers in the planetary and space science communities.

Interested students can find more information at http://impact.colorado.edu/lungradcon/ or email any questions to: lungradcon@gmail.com
Please contact us if you have any questions about this program.
