The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) began in 1948, a decade before NASA. We are the world’s only research institute to have sent instruments to all eight planets and Pluto.
LASP combines all aspects of space exploration through our expertise in science, engineering, mission operations, and scientific data analysis. As part of CU, LASP also works to educate and train the next generation of space scientists, engineers and mission operators by integrating undergraduate and graduate students into working teams. Our students take their unique experiences with them into government or industry, or remain in academia to continue the cycle of exploration.
What your key responsibilities will be:
- Lead the systems engineering effort for designated proposals, from kick-off to proposal submission.
- Design the technical implementation that meets stakeholder needs, within cost, schedule, and technical constraints.
- Take ownership of the technical aspects of assigned solicitation responses and ensure successful completion on time.
- Support development of science, cost, heritage, sections needing technical input.
- Discover the needs of the customer by asking the right questions, articulating solutions, and suggesting the right solution.
- Prioritize efforts to meet dynamic workload and schedule.
- Work with little to no direction or guidance to identify, structure, and articulate a winning approach.
- Ensure proposal meets all requirements.
- Recommend proposal and project improvements
- Develop and maintain technical budgets and supporting products for proposal efforts.
- Incorporate LASP strategic initiatives into the proposal implementation.
- Facilitate capture teams by coordinating technical team efforts that result in a concept implementation that closes.
- Support Capture Reviews and Color Team Reviews for assigned proposal by representing the technical implementation.
