Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Worldwide campus is currently hiring adjunct faculty to teach MSPO 513 - Space Habitation and Life Support Systems.
This course addresses the problems related to spaceflight induced changes in the major body systems that need to be solved in this decade, to develop countermeasures for maintaining the health of crewmembers on long duration space operations. Physiological elements of zero gravity environment, radiation hazards, and protection measures are explored, along with physical and chemical closed loop life support systems for long duration space missions. More elaborate life support systems for larger manned missions and colonies are outlined for further student development.
A minimum of a Doctorate degree in discipline is required (please see list of acceptable disciplines below), as well as relevant industry experience from within the last 7 years.
