The NESC Academy presents live and on-demand content from researchers, engineers, and field experts in 19 technical disciplines relevant to the design, development, test, and operation of NASA programs and projects.
The KM resources collection from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center is comprised of critical knowledge links and artifacts, institutional knowledge assets, lessons learned from missions and projects, that drive mission success. It also includes presentations and audio/video recordings of NASA technical leads, experts, scientists, and project leaders.
This repository provides access to NASA metadata records, full-text online documents, images, and videos. The types of information included are conference papers, journal articles, meeting papers, patents, research reports, images, movies, and technical videos – scientific and technical information (STI) created or funded by NASA.
Although the new fiber optic sensors on the Ikhana are not visible, the sealant used to cover them can be seen in this view from above the left wing.
NASA Safety Center – Professional Development
The NASA Safety Center (NSC) offers professional development opportunities to equip Safety and Mission Assurance (SMA) community members with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to do their jobs with confidence and credibility.

The MSI Exchange is a tool that supports your search for innovative and diverse academic collaborators by curating STEM offerings and capability statements of MSIs nationwide. The MSI Exchange can inform partnerships for teaming opportunities and competitive federal awards such as contracts, cooperative agreements, and grants.
NASA offers 60 years of experience in advanced engineering and testing capabilities, cutting edge research and technology development, as well as unique assets such as land, facilities and laboratories for use by commercial industries, academic institutions, U.S. Government agencies and international entities.
If you're an early-career or senior scientist, apply to the NASA Postdoctoral Program to help pursue NASA's mission and experience the world's most diverse technology and expertise.
NASA Hubble Fellowship Program
The NASA Hubble Fellowship Program (NHFP) supports promising postdoctoral scientists to pursue independent research which contributes to NASA Astrophysics, using theory, observation, experimentation, or instrument development.
Nancy Grace Roman Technology Fellowships
The goals of the fellowship program are to give early career researchers the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to lead astrophysics flight instrumentation development projects and become principal investigators of future astrophysics missions; to develop innovative technologies that have the potential to enable major scientific breakthroughs; and to foster new talent by putting early-career instrument builders on a trajectory towards long-term positions.
Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowships
The two-year fellowship is designed to train the next generation of heliophysics researchers. It matches early-career PhDs with experienced scientists at U.S. host research institutions.
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Postdoctoral applicants at Brookhaven Lab are provided an opportunity to participate in impactful research projects with scientific experts in their field while utilizing the Lab’s state of the art facilities.
JPL/CalTech Postdoc Opportunities
An internship at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is a chance to do the impossible. Here, you won’t be going on coffee runs — unless that coffee needs to be harvested from the moon and you’re on the team that’s building the probe to do it.

Guidance for Unsolicited Proposals
NASA encourages the submission of unique and innovative proposals that will further the Agency's mission. While the vast majority of proposals are solicited, a small number of unsolicited proposals that cannot be submitted to those solicitations and yet are still relevant to NASA are reviewed and some are funded each year.
