Proposing Time at Facilities

Details: Big science today often relies on access to big facilities, which could include a large telescope, a large high performance computing cluster, a scanning electron microscope, etc. Ultimately, to gain time on these facilities requires writing scientific proposals that argue for both the scientific value of the questions you are trying to answer, and explains the amount of resources you are requesting. In this Tools from the Couch / Professional Development & Learning Session, we will give an overview of proposing for time on these large facilities, and discuss the specifics of a few examples.

Presenter(s): Mark Richardson, Education and Outreach Officer at the McDonald Institute, and will be joined by Astrophysics Professor Sarah Sadavoy, Queen’s University, and possibly other researchers.
