The Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS) is soliciting nominations for KISS Affiliates who will begin their tenure in January 2020.

The KISS Affiliates are an ongoing cohort of Campus graduate students and postdocs who are space exploration enthusiasts. Organized by KISS, this group meets monthly and interacts with current researchers and leaders in space-related fields. A meal sponsored by KISS is normally associated with each event.

We intend to select one graduate student and one postdoctoral scholar from each of the EAS, GPS and PMA divisions, adding a total of 6 new KISS Affiliates to the ongoing program.

A one-page nomination by a faculty advisor is due via email to [email protected] on 05 November 2019. Successful nominees will be notified by end of the fall term.
