Judges Needed for Rodger Doxsey Travel Prizes

By Gina Brissenden

American Astronomical Society (AAS)

The Rodger Doxsey Travel Prize provides graduate students or postdocs within one year (either side) of receipt of their PhD a monetary prize to enable the oral presentation of their dissertation research at a winter meeting of the AAS. With the regular abstract deadline for the January 2014 AAS meeting in Washington, DC, now behind us, it’s time to choose this year’s Doxsey Prize winners. If you’re a full member of the AAS and are willing to review and rank the ~100 dissertation abstracts (I know the number seems big, but abstracts are short!) entered into this year’s competition, please send me an email by Friday, 11 October. Judging will take place during the latter half of October.
