It’s a dry heat… it snows here… and we have critters that bite!
But seriously… For those relocating to Tucson for the LSST project, your travel administrator will be in contact to help get you started. Please check out the following links for useful information:
If you have any questions about the city, where to live, best hospitals, nightlife, places to visit, etc.… your peers and your admins are the best sources of information – schedule some time with them and grab a chair.
At this time, relocating to Chile is complicated and rules and procedures must be followed. HR-Tucson, HR- Chile, AURA O- HR, Tucson and Chilean Adminsitrative Staff, Rubin Dirctors and Managers, and Rubin Travel are all working together to make relocating to Chile as seamless as possible for the traveler, which is why relocations are constructed on a case-by-case basis.
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.
