ROSES 2012 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 23: New opportunity via Appendix D.13: Kepler Participating Scientist Program

Description: We present a new opportunity via Appendix D.13: Kepler Participating Scientist Program. The Kepler PSP is complementary to, but distinct from, the Kepler Guest Observer (GO) program. Notices of intent are requested by January 18, 2013, and the due date for proposals is March 1, 2013.

The Kepler Participating Scientist Program (PSP) is designed to fund community investigations that advance the goals of the Kepler Mission during its extended phase.  Participating Scientists may pursue data processing and analysis tasks, exoplanet candidate follow-up observations, completeness and reliability studies, characterization of the stellar target sample, etc.
 
The Kepler PSP is complementary to, but distinct from, the Kepler Guest Observer (GO) program. The Kepler GO program offers members of the scientific community the opportunity to pursue research in any area of astrophysics through observations of stellar and/or nonstellar targets that fall within the Kepler field-of-view, but are not included in the Kepler target list.  Kepler GOs are solicited under Appendix D.7 of the ROSES 2012 NRA.
 
Notices of intent are requested by January 18, 2013, and the due date for proposals is March 1, 2013.
 
Notices of intent are requested by January 18, 2013, and the due date for proposals is March 1, 2013.
 
Technical questions regarding the Kepler extended mission and key science project activities may be directed to: Dr. Steve Howell, Kepler Project Scientist, at steve.b.howell@nasa.gov or (650) 604-4238.
 
NASA point of contact for programmatic information is Dr. Douglas Hudgins, who can be reached at douglas.m.hudgins@nasa.gov or (202) 358-0988.
