Now open: Call for nominations to the SPARC Scientific Steering Group

We are currently inviting nominations from highly enthusiastic and dedicated experts to  become a member of the SPARC Scientific Steering Group (SSG) – you can either nominate a candidate or nominate yourself. The SSG and co-chairs guide SPARC’s priorities and research activities and work together with, and are supported by, the SPARC project office. The SSG provides leadership for SPARC and represents a broad spectrum of disciplines and nationalities, including both junior and senior scientists. The duties and responsibilities of SSG members are outlined in the Terms of Reference. SSG members are expected to provide scientific guidance and oversight to the SPARC community and its activities and participate in developing and reviewing the scientific strategy for the SPARC community.

More information and the online form for your (self-)nomination can be found here.

The four-year membership term will be from January 2024 – December 2027, with a possible two year extension. Among all applications received, the current SSG and co-chairs will propose new members for final approval by the Joint Scientific Committee (JSC). 

Note: all applications/nominations received since 2019 are still being considered.

The deadline for submitting your nomination is 1 November 2022. (Self-)Nominations can be submitted through an online form on the SPARC website or via email to the SPARC project office.
