“People First” is why we do what we do. Come join the team that is making a difference in space and Earth science research. See below for a current listing of positions available at STI.
Visiting Scientist, Space Science
The USRA Science and Technology Institute (STI) is seeking a two-year appointment for a visiting scientist. The ideal candidate would have experience in thin film research toward the advancement of reflective optics for space-borne x-ray telescopes. This position will work closely with personnel in the x-ray astronomy group at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. This task will involve knowledge of single and multiplayer thin films, vacuum deposition systems, mechanical and optical properties of various materials, etc.
Visiting Associate Scientist, Earth Science
The USRA Science and Technology Institute (STI) is seeking a full-time entry-level Visiting Associate Scientist with experience in Applied Earth Science. This position is for one year (a 1-year appointment), and involves working with USRA, NASA and other scientists on applied research focused on water resources and water quality, climate, and the relationships between the physical environment (climate and air quality) and public health. For example, current and recent projects on which USRA/STI scientists are participating include studies of the effects of extreme outdoor heat and air quality on adverse health outcomes, and the effects of land cover and climate changes on water quantity and quality. These projects rely heavily on analysis of national to global data sets, much of which is from satellite remote sensors or global climate models.
