Science Team

Science Team

The international MSE Science Team supports all aspects of MSE science development, and is open to any research astronomer in the international community. The Science Working Group reviews annually the membership of the Science Team, and continued membership of the team requires only a record of active contributions to the Science Team.

The MSE Science Team is 406 members strong (as of September 1, 2020) and accepts new members on a continuing basis. To become part of the team, please contact your representatives on the Science Advisory Group, or the Project Scientist, Jennifer Marshall,

In addition, check out below the work being done by the MSE science working group leads.
