NASA Speaker Series

The goal of the NASA MPOWIR Speaker Series is to familiarize early career women in the field of physical oceanography with the research conducted at the NASA labs and to inform NASA scientists of the research conducted by junior scientists in the community. Each year, two scientists are chosen to give a seminar at either JPL or Goddard.

To be considered for this opportunity, applicants must an early career scientist who identifies as women or non-binary and self-identify as physical oceanographers. Additionally, applicants must be in their final year of graduate school (within 1 year of completing the dissertation), or in a postdoctoral position, or in a permanent position for no more than two years. NASA funds can be used to support anyone at a US Institution (US or non-US citizen). This opportunity is not open to those at foreign institutions.
