In an era of dynamic change in space, Aerospace is addressing a generation of complex challenges. We operate the only federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) committed exclusively to the space enterprise. Our technical experts span every discipline of space-related science and engineering. Join our team and thrive in a career that matters to the world and you personally. This role will provide engineering, analysis, and test support for the NASA Human Exploration Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD) specifically in the area of lunar and Mars surface human mobility and EVA systems and multidisciplinary human-in-the-loop assessments of HEOMD engineering architectures, concepts, and designs. The position will also provide support for the Lunar Surface Human Mobility Systems project office at which is responsible for the Lunar Terrain Vehicle and Habitable Mobility Platform projects, from pre-formulation through prototype development, flight unit development. This position may also provide technical consultation in support of Human Health and Performance protocols, test events, and report authoring being performed by EVA performance and aerospace physiology research scientists. SUMMARY OF RESPONSIBILITIES Acts as senior technical authority, consultant, primary investigator, or team leader. May lead or organize interfaces between customers' and Aerospace technical and management staff. Coordinates large-scale technical efforts across programproject lines. Mentors less experienced MTS and serves as role model. KEY FUNCTIONS Provide technical support to NASA customer as part of the lunar System Human Mobility Systems project office and the HEOMD Human In The Loop (HITL) Test Team. Perform planning, development and execution of multidisciplinary human-in-the-loop tests that address NASA HEOMD, HQ, and other stakeholder objectives Perform systems engineering, integration, and test activities for Lunar Surface Human Mobility Systems Project Office tasks in support of developing spaceflight hardware Perform architectural analyses and studies, and project feasibility assessments (cost, schedule, technical, affordability and executability) in support of NASA Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD) customers, with a focus on Artemis. Work independently and as part of a team in a fast-paced, rapidly changing environment, to react quickly to changing requirements and schedules, and to provide products of consistently high quality. Coordinate, lead, and provide technical oversight on human research studies and engineering evaluations, including scheduling, integration with stakeholders and collaborators, and preparing final reports and recommendations for program management Serve as a test subject for protocol and hardware evaluations on a volunteer basis Provide technical input to Moon-to-Mars and Artemis architecture teams, working groups, and TIMs Communicate effectively and be able to summarize and present analysis findings to both Aerospace and NASA Senior Staff. Lead and co-author various publications and presentations for NASA internal meetings and external public conferences. Operate under the direction of Government personnel, the Aerospace Task lead, or other contractors placed in leadership positions within the team as the situation demands. Effectively work with multiple projects and teams simultaneously. Work effectively remotely and travel as required to support various customer sites, Human-in-the-loop tests, meetings, technical conferences, and meetings May undertake a major program segment such as system-level architectural analysis, conceptual design of a new vehicle or major payload. May be required to investigate urgent technical problems or assemble a major briefing or report. As Aerospace representative in customer or contractor's environment, provides nondirective advice, accepts action items and may coordinate pertinent budgets, tasks, and priorities. In systems engineering assignments, generally leadscoordinates team comprised of diversely skilled engineers servicing a major portion of a large project or working across projects, and interfaces regularly with customer and contractor program management.
