Dear Colleague,

We are seeking well qualified candidates for the Executive Committee of the
Living with a Star Program Analysis Group (LPAG), formerly the LWS TR&T
Steering Committee. As with its predecessor, the LPAG performs a vital role
by providing an opportunity for the Heliophysics Community to provide input
and information to the LWS program. Examples of the activities that the
LPAG is asked to address include:

·         Articulation of the key scientific drivers for LWS scientific
research including potential focused science topics (FSTs), strategic
capabilities, cross-cutting research, and others;

·         Evaluation of the expected capabilities of potential LWS missions
for achieving the science goals of the program;

·         Evaluation of LWS goals, objectives, investigations, and required

·         Articulation of focus areas for targeted research and technology
development; and

·         Analysis of related activities such as ground-based observing,
theory and modeling programs, laboratory heliophysics, suborbital
investigations, data archiving, and community engagement.

The terms of reference for the LPAG is located on the LWS web site:


As part of the LPAG process, four of the twelve members of the current
Executive Committee are stepping down to allow for new membership. We are
currently seeking four members from the Heliophysics community with a solid
understanding of the scientific basis of Heliophysics system science.
Highly qualified candidates from all career stages, including early career,
will be considered. Membership in the LPAG is nominally three years. At
present, the LPAG Executive Committee meets in person for three days twice
a year. Participation in these meetings and during occasional telecons is
expected for continued participation. In addition, members may participate
in community engagement at various scientific meeting during the year
either through soliciting input from the wider community or presenting
status of LPAG activities. Additional information can be found on the LWS
website at:


To be a candidate for the LPAG Executive Committee, send you submission to
the LWS program staff at the email addresses below. Please include in your
submission a brief summary of the contributions you would make to the
committee and your qualifications for doing so, as well as a single-page
vitae. This submission must be limited to a two-page PDF file. Nominations
will only be accepted for scientists who reside at a U.S. institution for
the period of service. We will accept submissions until midnight Eastern
Daylight Time on March 11, 2020. Please feel free to share this letter with
anyone you think would be interested.
