Judges Needed for 2016 Rodger Doxsey Travel Prizes

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 227th AAS meeting in Kissimmee, Florida, 4-8 January 2016 upon us, it’s time to choose this year’s Doxsey Prize winners, which means we also need Doxsey Prize judges!

If you’re a full member of the AAS and are willing to review and rank the ~100 dissertation abstracts that will be entered into this year’s competition, please send me an email by Friday, 9 October. Judging will take place in late October/early November via a conference call.
