The intern project will support NASA Human Research Program’s Cross-cutting Computational Modeling Project (CCMP). CCMP implements well-vetted computational models to simulate crew health during spaceflight in order to predict and assess crew health and performance risks, enhance countermeasure development, and predict acceptable human performance limits, thereby preserving the functional capabilities of astronauts.

Specifically for this assignment, the student intern will join the Glenn team formed to study the effect of space environment on the astronauts on different levels and investigate the propagation from one level to another. The intern position will involve literature search, data mining from published papers, and exploring physiological changes that lead to health problems and performance degradation. This may involve the use of one or more computer programming languages (python, matlab, c++, etc.), applied mathematical analysis processes, or statistical methodologies in conjunction with senior programmers and data scientists. This project is aligned with the Physical Sciences and Biomedical Technologies core competency at the NASA Glenn Research Center.

Eligibility requirements:

  • U.S. Citizen
  • Cumulative 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale)
  • Full-time students (high school through graduate)
  • Enrollment in a degree granting institution
  • 16 years of age at the time of application (no exceptions)
