Space Life Sciences Training Program at NASA Ames Research Center

The Space Life Sciences Training Program (SLSTP) is seeking student applications for the 2017 summer program. The program will run from June 12 to August 18, 2017 at NASA Ames Research Center. SLSTP provides undergraduate students entering their junior or senior years with professional experience in space life science disciplines. The primary goal of the program is to train the next generation of scientists and engineers, enabling NASA to meet future research and development challenges in the space life sciences. Please note that in addition to the research project, the SLSTP program includes a group project, and some project based training. These are mandatory activities and are estimated to be ~20% of all SLSTP students' effort.

More information on the SLSTP program can be found at: http://www.nasa.gov/ames/research/space-life-sciences-training-program.
