ACCESS AND DEMOCRATIZATION
The Global Projects Program is a key initiative of ICAD.
This program is designed to address several critical goals: making commercial space flight more accessible internationally, bringing scientific knowledge to the general public, and democratizing access to space.
Operating on a project-by-project basis, this program is currently centered around Space Medicine, with plans to expand into other domains in the future.
Each project within the program has its own defined objectives, tailored to the needs of the communities being engaged, and is aligned with ICAD's overarching goal of democratizing access to space.
The composition of the teams working on projects within this program varies based on the specific objectives of each project, ensuring a dynamic approach to addressing the challenges and opportunities in this domain.
DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT YOU WOULD LIKE TO COLLABORATE ON?
CIVILIAN MEDICAL INFORMATION FOR SPACE TRAVEL
Civilian Medical Information for Space Travel (C-MIST) is our current project, in partnership with Space for Humanity.
Our goal is to perform a comprehensive patient-centred review of common medical conditions and the risks associated with suborbital flight and short duration exposure to microgravity. Our intention is to improve civilian knowledge and awareness, and to support international civilian access to space flight opportunities and commercial space program inclusivity.
C-MIST is a 2-3 year project. Individual researchers are required to commit to an initial 3-month term which may be extended by mutual agreement.
Recruitment is now OPEN. We encourage applicants from regions without local Space medicine opportunities.
Working knowledge of scientific principles, referencing, research design, and research protocols. Previous research experience as 1st author
Ability to work independently and unsupervised. Meet deadlines without reminders. Flexible and adaptable to schedule changes.
PLUS at least 2-3 years of clinical experience
Outstanding written and verbal communication in English (English 1st language preferred)
Proficient with Microsoft 365, Google workspace, Slack, and Citation software
Objective evidence is required (certificates, diplomas) of Space Medicine knowledge. Must be able to apply knowledge.
Experience developing patient information leaflets, procedural documents, research reports.
Desired but not required
