America’s future is in space exploration, and it’s time to invest in the scientists that will bring forward ground-breaking advances to enable that exciting future. - Dr. Dorit Donoviel, TRISH executive director.
TRISH Postdoctoral Fellowship
TRISH’s postdoctoral fellowship program supports early career scientists pursuing research with the potential to reduce the health risks associated with spaceflight and improve performance. Selected fellows will participate in TRISH’s Academy of Bioastronautics, a mentorship community for space health professionals, and receive a two-year salary stipend. The Institute views its postdoctoral fellowship as a tool to develop the next generation of space biomedical researchers.
“TRISH is a launch pad for exceptional postdoctoral fellows investigating new ways to protect human health,” said Rachael Dempsey, education officer for TRISH. “Space health science leads to innovations that help humans thrive, wherever they explore. Our institute is committed to building a diverse and engaged workforce prepared for humanity’s future in space.”
TRISH Academy of Bioastronautics
As a TRISH postdoctoral fellow or in a TRISH-funded lab, postdocs are invited to participate in the TRISH Academy of Bioastronautics. The Academy of Bioastronautics offers a mentorship community for space health professionals where they may discuss career development, practice presentations, and connect with others in the field.
