Graduate Student Opportunities

CRESST II provides opportunities for graduate students to become involved in GSFC research through space-related data analysis, observation, and hardware development. Student research at GSFC may be performed in conjunction with second-year projects or contribute to thesis research. Most universities will allow a GSFC-based scientist to be a member of a student's thesis committee, although the student will have a primary advisor on-campus.

For Scientists: If you are a GSFC-based scientist interested in working with a graduate student, please contact the CRESST II Program Manager, Leland Cheyne for assistance. At a minimum, the information needed is whether a specific student has been identified, the nature of the research project, and approximately how many months of support planned for the student. CRESST II will then work to define the next steps.

For Graduate Students: NASA and CRESST II periodically have summer research programs for graduate students. Learn more about the two programs on our CRESST II Summer Internship Program Page. For graduate students interested in long-term projects and affiliated with one of our CRESST II partners, contact the representative of your associated university for more information.
