KBRwyle Senior Human Systems Integrator (Johnson Space Center) in Houston, Texas

Senior Human Systems Integrator (Johnson Space Center)


The role of the JSC HMTA is to execute the Technical Authority governance model for human space flight for the Office of the Chief Health and Medical Officer (OCHMO). The purpose of the HMTA is twofold with respect to human space flight: the transparent adjudication of crew health risk and the discharge of technical expertise. Therefore, the goal of the HMTA is to manage human system risks through fundamental integration of human health and performance requirements via programmatic and project insight and oversight, coupled with the appropriate support and involvement of subject matter experts. The HMTA accomplishes this goal through dedicated and cross-matrixed HH&P personnel. This highly diverse staff monitors how well human health and performance requirements are met, documents issues of unmet or under met requirements, communicates the status of these issues to HH&P management, Chief Medical Officers (CMOs), and HMTA Delegates, and prepares materials for communicating awareness or escalating issues as needed. This work is done for all current and emerging NASA human space flight programs, the Human Research Program, and other human-related technology programs.

This position will support the Health and Medical Technical Authority (HMTA) at NASA/JSC. The team serves in the role of integrators and subject matter experts (SMEs) to ensure NASA human spaceflight programs adequately incorporate and implement HMTA standards. The integrator position needs to obtain and maintain broad knowledge of all human health and performance requirements and engage SMEs for the technical details. Our integrators are assigned to specific human health and performance discipline areas such as crew health, environmental factors, medical operations, physiology, anthropometry, strength and biomechanics, maintenance and housekeeping, safety, habitability and architecture, information management, and displays and controls. Our integrators interface with HMTA and HH&P management as well as with Program personnel. Human Systems Integration strategies are implemented in order to inform the HMTA and efficiently support Human Spaceflight Programs. Lessons learned while providing support to Human Spaceflight Programs are leveraged to improve HMTA standards and strategic processes.
