The Translational Research Institute for Space Health at Baylor College of Medicine (TRISH) is soliciting proposals from postdoctoral researchers ready to help solve the health challenges of human deep space exploration.

TRISH’s postdoctoral fellowship program supports early-career scientists pursuing disruptive, breakthrough research with the potential to reduce risks to astronaut health and performance.

“We are proud to be training the next generation of scientists to help take humans onward to Mars,” said Dr. Dorit Donoviel, director of the Translational Research Institute for Space Health at Baylor.

Selected fellows will receive a stipend for salary support, an allowance for health insurance and funds for travel to related scientific meetings.

Applicants must submit research proposals together with an identified mentor and institution. Funds to support the research must be supplied by the mentor. Independent investigators with existing research grant support may request to be listed as possible mentors for this program by contacting Aurelia Vergeade at avergeade@nasaprs.com.

All categories of United States institutions are eligible to submit proposals (universities, federal government laboratories, the private sector and state and local government laboratories). See the solicitation. Full proposals submitted through nspires.nasaprs.com will be due on Jan. 22, 2020. Technical questions should be directed to the NSPIRES help desk at NSPIRES-help@nasaprs.com or TRISH@nasaprs.com. Programmatic or scientific questions may be directed to spacehealth-info@bcm.edu.

As a partner to the NASA Human Research Program, the Translational Research Institute for Space Health helps solve the health challenges to human deep space exploration. The Institute finds and funds disruptive, breakthrough research and technologies that can reduce risks to astronaut health and performance.

The Institute is funded through a cooperative agreement with NASA to Baylor College of Medicine and includes consortium partners Caltech and MIT.
