June 18, 2014 - LSST's hiring campaign will be the focus of the Project's booth on the exhibit floor of the SPIE Astronomical Telescopes and Instrumentation meeting in Montreal, Quebec, Canada June 25-26. Stop by, or encourage others who might be interested, to discover the exciting career opportunities available with the Project now and in near future.
In anticipation of our federal construction start, LSST is seeking scientific, engineering, education, and administrative talent now and in the near future for the construction and eventual operation of this new generation observing facility. LSST sees the diversity of its team as a critical component in constructing and operating a large scientific facility of value to all. We reflect that deep commitment by strongly encouraging women, minorities, veterans and disabled individuals to apply for the opportunities offered. The LSST Hiring Campaign website will be updated to show new positions as they become available: lsst.org/hiring.
Financial support for Rubin Observatory comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded Rubin Observatory Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA). The DOE-funded effort to build the the Rubin Observatory LSST Camera (LSSTCam) is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
NSF and DOE will continue to support Rubin Observatory in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
