Archival Research

NASA has released the Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) - 2013 at the NSPIRES website. The Astrophysics Data Analysis Program (ADP), included in the ROSES, supports Spitzer archival research for both cryogenic and warm mission data.

The details are provided in Appendix D.2. Proposal due dates for the program are:

  • Notice of Intent: March 28, 2013
  • Proposal: May 17, 2013

This is a great opportunity for investigators in U.S.-based institutions to obtain support for Spitzer archival research.

Please note that the ADP program only supports research on objects and phenomena outside of our Solar System. Spitzer archival proposals to support research on our Solar System should be directed to the Planetary Science Division. Depending on the science, the programs that provide the best funding opportunities are

  • Planetary Geology and Geophysics Program (PG&G; ROSES appendix C.4)
  • Planetary Atmospheres Program (ROSES appendix C.6)
  • Planetary Mission Data Analysis Program (PMDAP; ROSES appendix C.11)
  • Outer Planets Research Program (ROSES appendix C.7)

In all cases we recommend that Spitzer researchers contact the cognizant program officer at NASA in advance of submitting their funding proposals.
