The Mars Exploration Program (MEP) would like to solicit your participation on a Mars 2020 Contamination Study Panel.

The panel will have approximately 5-10 members, plus involvement of program/project/discipline support personnel. It is anticipated that the panel members would have expertise and knowledge spanning astrobiology, organic chemistry/geochemistry including theory and state-of-the-art lab practices, and contamination control and measurement. The panel will meet by teleconference once or twice per week between March 1 and July 1, with two face-to-face meetings. A draft report will be due May 1, and final report July 1.

If you are able and interested in supporting this effort, please, send a curriculum vitae and letter of interest to Dr. Michael Meyer via email (mars2020-contam-study@lists.nasa.gov), by February 25, 2014. Thank you for your consideration.

Regards,

Michael Meyer, Lead Scientist, NASA Mars Exploration Program

Lisa May, Lead Program Executive, NASA Mars Exploration Program
