Join the Spaceflight Operations Workshop this summer

Clayton Anderson’s 4th Annual Spaceflight Operations Workshop is taking applications now for this summer’s session. August 7-14, experience a truly unique workshop that gives you the knowledge and tools based on exercises similar to those used in actual Astronaut training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. Activities include, SCUBA dicing, wilderness survival training, flight simulation, skydiving, and virtual reality. The deadline for applications is Friday, April 28.

Post-Doctoral Position

Post-Doctoral Position in Experimental Phase Transitions and Plasticity Under High Pressure

Post-doctoral position at Iowa State University is available starting Summer/Fall 2019 to perform experimental research on coupled plastic flow, phase transformations, and other structural changes under high pressure and torsion of a sample in rotational diamond anvil cell. Experience with in situ high pressure experimentation and/or x-ray characterization of stresses and structural changes in materials at the micron scale is desired. Close collaboration with theoretical / computational collaborators and with Ames Laboratory of DoE is expected. Please email your application to Prof. Valery Levitas vlevitas@iastate.edu.
