On November 24, the White House announced nominations and appointments for several key federal positions including the final two appointments filling out the National Science Board (NSB), the advisory body for the National Science Foundation (NSF). These appointments mark the first time since May that the NSB has had all seats filled and will be the last opportunity for the Trump White House to submit appointments to the NSB before the Presidential transition. The two NSB appointees are:
- Matthew Malkan, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of California, Los Angeles
- Scott Stanley, Vice President of Technology and Co-Founder of aerospace engineering firm Techno Planet
The next meeting of the NSB is December 9-10. More information and the meeting agenda are available on the NSB website.
