NASA’s Science Mission Directorate solicits applications from individuals who are interested in serving on the NASA Astrophysics Advisory Committee (APAC). The membership term will be one to three years. Members will be required to attend meetings one to four times a year, either in person or via webex. Terms of reference and meeting minutes of the APAC may be found on


Applicants must be employed by a U.S. organization or institution. NASA seeks applications from individuals who represent the broad diversity of the U.S. scientific and engineering community. NASA is committed to a culture of diversity, inclusion, and equity, where all participants feel welcome, respected, and engaged and where individuals can be authentic. Aligned with NASA’s core value of inclusion, Science Mission Directorate’s Science Plan seeks to  increase the diversity of thought and backgrounds represented across the entire SMD portfolio through a more inclusive and accessible environment.  We therefore strongly encourage nominations, including self-nominations, from scientists and engineers from under-represented and under-served groups who are interested in joining the NASA Astrophysics Advisory Committee. 


To be considered by NASA, applicants must submit a vita or a link to a vita and a one-page statement on their motivation to serve on the committee. All nominations must be submitted electronically via email to Hashima Hasan ( no later than April 30, 2022. Hard-copy nominations will not be considered.
