Application Deadline Extended


Good news! We’ve extended the deadline for applications for this year’s NASA FDL research program so you’ve still got time to submit your application! It’s a fantastic opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary environment, learn from peers and world-class mentors, and create something with real impact.

With the recent shutdown of the US government – and thus of our FDL partner NASA – we have decided to update some of our scheduling. This is good news for you, as it means you’re not too late to apply to be part of NASA FDL 2019.

Our AI and space research accelerator program gives PhD and post-doctoral researchers the chance to spend eight weeks over the summer working in small interdisciplinary teams developing tools that could extend space exploration or benefit people here on Earth. Previous teams have had papers published, presented at leading AI and space conferences, and become a valuable part of our growing FDL network.

This year’s challenges fall under a range of mission areas which are detailed on the FDL 2019 research page.

The magic of FDL research sprint comes from the interdisciplinary nature of the teams, with data scientists gaining from the knowledge and experience of space scientists, and vice versa.

If you know someone who would be benefit from the program please encourage them to apply. We offer a stipend and accommodation and as well as access to world-class mentors and cutting-edge technology.

You’ve still got time to get your application sent in to us, so what are you waiting for?
