  • Employment Opportunity - NASA Johnson Space Center

    The purpose of this position is to support the Exercise Countermeasures
    Project (ECP) at the NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC). This position
    assists in evaluating and validating candidate exercise countermeasure
    hardware and prescriptions, alone and in combination with other
    countermeasures, for the protection of crew health and safety during
    lunar and Mars space travel. This position has technical responsibility
    for interpreting, organizing, executing and presenting test findings for
    ECP engineering assignments.

    Duties & Responsibilities
    * Generate and maintain the ECP Engineering documentation (e.g. design
    proposals, testing protocols, etc.)
    * Generate engineering inputs for ECP sponsored studies

    collaborating NASA centers, the ECP Investigator Team, and other Project
    * Perform computer aided design and structural analysis, as required
    * Perform biomechanical analysis using motion capture systems, force
    sensing systems, and computer based multi-body dynamics simulation
    * Support engineering activities for ECP space flight and ground analog
    studies, including frequent travel to the bed rest facility at UTMB in
    * Provide inputs to weekly and monthly reports
    * Present findings and information to the ECP team, collaborating NASA
    centers, and other Project stakeholders
    * Communicate project objectives, needs, and requirements to project
    team leaders, and assist in long-term planning for meeting programmatic
