If pretending to be on Mars for several months and getting paid for it is appealing to you, you're in luck. The HI-SEAS group is recruiting for its next two missions in 2017 and 2018. Both missions will be for 8 months instead of 12. If you are between 21 and 65 years old, able to speak and write fluently in English, have an undergraduate degree in science or engineering and at least three years of graduate study or experience, and can pass a "class 2 flight physical examination", among other requirements, you can apply. Good luck!
