UG student worker needed – NASA project

Interested in working on a project for NASA? Have you taken CEE 3810? Interested in contributing to journal and conference papers about the research? If so, Dr. Paul van Susante is looking to hire on an hourly basis (10 hr/week at $15/hr) an undergraduate student (US Person or Citizen) with geotechnical knowledge for immediate start in January to help with his NASA cone penetrometer project. They need to perform a great many 1m deep cone penetrometer tests under controlled conditions (inside the freezer container) where we have to reset the testbed with lunar simulant, compact to the desired relative density and create icy layers with specified wt% ice (particles or cemented). The lunar simulant then needs to be emptied from the testbed and put in the drying container to dry out before the next test. The tests themselves include a regular ASTM DCP, a modified instrumented ASTM DCP, a handheld electronic cone penetrometer, a percussive cone penetrometer with 5 different cone geometries. The work is on campus in the Benedict Lab. Safety training and respirator training will be required. You will work with the other students as part of the Planetary Surface Technology Development Lab (www.huskyworks.space) and work may be available/extend through summer.  If you are interested, please contact Dr. van Susante to express your interest and send your resume highlighting your geotechnical knowledge at E-mail: pjvansus@mtu.edu .
