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.
