NASA Ames Summer 2009 Graduate Student Internship Programs


The Systems Teaching Institute is offering a 10- to 12-week summer research program for graduate students in fields relevant to the research done at NASA's Ames Research Center in California. Selected students will gain hands-on experience working with cutting-edge research and development teams, an increased understanding of the NASA mission, and mentoring in research management skills. Besides working closely with Ames scientists and engineers, students will have the opportunity to attend seminars tailored to their level of expertise, career development workshops, and an end-of-summer symposium where they can share their results with other student interns. Awards (in the form of travel support to a national conference) will be given for the best symposium poster presentations.

To be eligible, students must be enrolled in (or accepted into) a master’s or doctoral program. Students must demonstrate their potential to contribute to Ames research via enrollment in a highly relevant degree program (science, technology, engineering or mathematics) and/or articulation of:

--Acquired skills that might be of special interest.

--Prior educational background that shows interdisciplinary knowledge.

--Specialized career goals directly related to NASA’s mission.

Underrepresented and underserved students are strongly encouraged to apply.


Starting and ending dates are flexible to allow for varying institutional academic calendars. However, students are expected to work a minimum of 10 weeks between May 1 and Sept. 30, 2009.

All application materials should be postmarked on or before Jan. 31, 2009. Unofficial transcripts will be accepted for the Jan. 31 deadline. However, official transcripts must be received by March 31, 2009. The Systems Teaching Institute will make selections and send out notification letters to all applicants on or before April 30, 2009.

Questions regarding this opportunity may be submitted by e-mail to Dr. Natalie Batalha at <mailto:nbatalha@science.sjsu.edu>nbatalha@science.sjsu.edu or Amy Gilbert at <mailto:amy.gilbert@adm.ucsc.edu>amy.gilbert@adm.ucsc.edu.

 2009 NASA Postdoctoral Program Accepting Applications


The NASA Postdoctoral Program provides talented postdoctoral scientists and engineers with valuable opportunities to engage in ongoing NASA research projects. The Postdoctoral Program serves as a source of talent to ensure the continued quality of the NASA research workforce. These one- to three-year fellowship appointments are competitive and are designed to advance NASA's missions in space science, Earth science, aeronautics, space operations, exploration systems and astrobiology.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. or an equivalent doctorate degree before beginning the fellowship. Applicants must have U.S. citizenship, Lawful Permanent Resident status, Employment Authorization Document with pending LPR status, or J-1 Visa status as a Research Scholar before beginning the fellowship. An H-1B Visa status is not acceptable because the NPP is not an employment program.

Stipend rates for Postdoctoral Fellows start at $50,000 per year. Moderate supplements are given for Ph.D. degrees in certain specialized fields, such as engineering, computer science, clinical space-biomedical science, etc., and for high cost-of-living areas. Funds are available for relocation expenses. Fellows also receive $8,000 per appointment year to support travel to conferences, meetings and other activities (i.e., travel to field sites or observatories to collect data or for required training) that directly support their research projects.


Applications for this opportunity are due on March 1, 2009.

NSBRI Announcement Soliciting Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications

The National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) is soliciting applications for its Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.  Two-year fellowships are available in any U.S. laboratory carrying out space-related biomedical or biotechnological research that supports the NSBRI's goals.  NSBRI research addresses and seeks solutions to the various health concerns associated with long-duration human space exploration.

Applicants must submit proposals with the support of a mentor and institution, and all proposals will be evaluated by a peer-review panel. The program is open to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or persons with pre-existing visas obtained through their sponsoring institutions that permit postdoctoral training for the project's duration.

Detailed program and application submission information is available on the NSBRI Web site at www.nsbri.org/Announcements/rfa08-03.html.  Notices of intent and applications must be submitted through the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES).  Notices of intent are due June 19, 2008, and the application deadline is July 31, 2008.

Questions may be directed to Sonia Rahmati Clayton, Ph.D., Program Coordinator, NSBRI Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, email: postdoc@www.nsbri.org, or phone: 713-798-7412.



Faculty Positions at North Carolina State University



POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AT  NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AEROSPACE-


The National Institute of Aerospace (NIA) has an opening for a Postdoctoral Associate to work in the area of Multifunctional Materials Development.  The position will involve conducting research in the area of development of multi-functional materials for space exploration offering possibilities for lighter, stronger and higher performance as compared with off-the-shelf (OTS) commercially available materials; with the goal to enable improved system performance with material properties that are not only structural, but also allow performance of additional functional aspects of the system operation. Primary areas of research will focus on the design of and with multi-functional materials using advanced synthesis, processing; and predictive modeling and characterization technologies. Research activities include experimental as well as theoretical nano to meso to macro scale phenomena.  The incumbent will be a member of the Multifunctional Materials Research Group (MMRG) consisting of up to five graduate students conducting their thesis research at Langley Research Center (LaRC); and up to five graduate students and a postdoc conducting their research in the Department of Materials Sciences and Engineering at Virginia Tech. The incumbent will operate as an integral part of the MMRG group and will be located at NIA and NASA LaRC in Hampton VA. The initial appointment will be for one year with possible renewals.  Screening of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Candidates should send a resume, cover letter describing how you would address the listed requirements and expectations, abstract of doctoral dissertation, description of career goals, and the names and contact information of three current references to:
