HOME: Habitats Optimized for Missions of Exploration (Space Technology Research Institute for Deep Space Habitat Design)


Project Description

DESIGNING HABITATS FOR DEEP SPACE MISSIONS - be part of shaping the future generation of spacecraft habitats and deep-space bases.

Designing future habitats for human exploration in deep space missions will require a convergent research approach involving expertise from civil/architectural engineering, robotics, data science/statistics, human-computer interaction, and many others. The HOME (Habitats Optimized for Mission Exploration) Institute brings together these different disciplines to develop novel designs for habitats that are suitable for sustaining human exploration and systems.

Successful applicants should have a strong background and/or interest in a combination of at least two of the following fields: facilities management, non-destructive testing, autonomous systems, machine learning, information modeling, 3D imaging and/or related fields.
This is a paid position (covering tuition and stipend) in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Carnegie Mellon University.

This PhD position is part of the Space Technology Research Institute for Autonomous Space Habitats, funded by NASA, and in collaboration with researchers from six other universities and industry partners.
