NASA invites applications for the SHINE training course focused on the scientific aspects of space radiation but also agency risk management strategies. This course is designed as a virtual training program targeted to graduate students, postdocs, research scientists, early career investigators and potential new investigators to learn about the relevant scientific elements of the Human Research Program (HRP). The 6 month course will include formal didactic lectures covering essential learning material along with more informal interactive coffee hours to facilitate networking with space radiation thought leaders.

The SHINE Application uses the Request for Information (RFI) response structure in the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES). Responses must be submitted electronically using the NSPIRES web site. SHINE is open to all eligible individuals as outlined in the RFI.
