  • summer aerospace opportunity - biomechanics included

    Interested in designing a world-class biosatellite, researching aerospace
    physiology, or exploring microfinancing concepts for space missions? ;

    Mars Gravity / YourNameIntoSpace is once again excited to open our doors to
    visiting engineers, scientists, marketing and public relations experts, and
    educators for our summer workshop. Students and professionals alike are
    invited to apply for this annual program hosted in both Boston and Atlanta.
    Dates for participants are flexible, but typically run from 6 to 12 weeks
    between June and September.

    See for an application.
    All materials must be submitted by March 1st.

    [NOTE: A limited number of biomechanics spots are available for studies of
    partial weight bearing adaptation, focusing particularly on musculoskeletal
    changes under chronic 1/6 and 1/3-g loads. Experience with mouse models of
    unloading and/or analysis of rodent skeletal samples a strong plus. Finite
    element modeling skills also welcomed.]
