Fellowships and Career Opportunities (Including Post Docs)
- Scientific Associate position at BNL –Scientific Associate is a Full-Time, 2-year term appointment position. It will be in the LSST group in the Instrumentation Division to join in the development of the readout electronics and overall optimization of the 3.2Gpixel focal plane array based on state-of-the-art deep depletion charge-coupled devices (CCD). The LSST Project is preparing for construction of a large ground based observatory in Chile. The 8.4 meter LSST will survey the entire visible sky deeply in multiple colors every week, probing the mysteries of Dark Matter and Dark Energy, and opening a movie-like window on objects that change or move rapidly; exploding supernovae, potentially hazardous near-Earth asteroids, and distant Kuiper Belt Objects. The LSST group is in need of a talented individual to perform detailed electro-optic characterization and analysis on pre-production prototypes, and to have a significant role in guiding the development of the final mixed-signal CCD readout hardware.
