The candidate must have demonstratedskills in research/experimental design, task and error analysis,Human-in-the-Loop (HITL) testing, statistical analysis, and reportwriting.Desired:Experience with requirements development and verification;Experience with development of and human interaction withautonomous and information systems; Familiarity with industrystandards (e.g., MIL-STD-1472, NASA-STD-3001) and/or priorexperience with NASA, ISS, Orion, or related work.Additional Job Posting Information:Experience in lieu of education.Notes to Applicant: 000000974443269 This position will be within the Human Factors and SystemManagement team, which supports the Habitability and Human FactorsBranch at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. This teamprovides research, analysis, evaluation and usability testing ofhardware and software crew interfaces for cockpits, habitats,spacesuits, and equipment. This includes computer displays andcontrols, workstation systems, and other types of crew interfaces.The group has a unique capability with a staff experienced in therigors of both cognitive human factors and ergonomic research andevaluations. The candidate will mainly support the Gateway Program,but also become involved in other projects like Orion. Explorationactivities consist of providing support to the design anddevelopment of the human-system interfaces, including requirementsinterpretation and verification planning and testing, taskanalysis, human error analysis, and iterative crewevaluations.General Duties include:• Apply human performance principles, methodologies, andtechnologies to the design of human-system interfaces.• Identify and analyze technological problems or risks, performtheoretical human factors investigations, and develop and implementevaluation and analysis plans.• Develop and implement evaluation methodologies and statisticalanalysis plans to test and assess developmental prototypes used innew products and processes, such as cockpit designs, userworkstations, and computerized human models.• Interface with design engineers to establish system design,operating, and training requirements and to ensure optimizedhuman-system interfaces.• Provide human systems expertise and support to the design anddevelopment of human -system interfaces in an integrated andcollaborative fashion, supporting design, development, andpreparation of deliverables.Specific Duties include:• Conduct cognitive task analysis at the system and componentlevel.• Perform human error analysis by identifying potential sources ofhuman error and actions to mitigate sources of human error throughdesign recommendations.• Conduct Human-in-the-Loop (HITL) testing by developing testplans, coordinating with facilities, collaborating with subjectmatter experts, conducting the data collection and analysis, anddelivering presentations to Program management throughout thedesign lifecycle.• Provide human factors consulting services to include design,prototyping, surveys/interviews, heuristic evaluation, cognitivewalkthroughs, and/or usability testing of human-systeminterfaces.• Provide verification planning and execution for requirements suchas usability, workload, error, information management, automationlevels, anthropometry, range of motion, and strength.• Support technical reviews such as Preliminary Design Reviews(PDR) and Critical Design Review (CDR).last_img
