ESMD Space Grant Faculty Fellowships Opportunity Summer 2011

NASA’s Exploration Systems Mission Directorate (ESMD) is accepting applications for summer 2011 faculty fellowships. The purpose of these fellowship opportunities is to prepare faculty members to enable their students to complete senior design projects with potential contribution to NASA ESMD objectives. The faculty will work for a continuous period of six (6) to twelve (12) weeks at a NASA field center on a selected ESMD project and incorporate the ESMD project into an existing senior design course or capstone course at their university in the 2011/2012 academic year. During the designated weeks at a NASA field center, each faculty fellow will work side-by-side with a NASA technical expert. The faculty will gain extensive knowledge on the ESMD-related project including the associated requirements, interfaces and issues affecting the design and potential solution(s). The faculty will develop course materials for use at their university during the 2011/2012 academic year in support of the completion of senior design project(s) using a systems engineering approach. The ESMD project must be selected from the approved list found at http://education.ksc.nasa.gov/ESMDspacegrant/2010_Faculty_Solicitation.htm

Up to five (5) faculty fellows will be awarded through this solicitation.
Any questions may be directed to Diane Ingraham at zola.d.ingraham@nasa.gov.
