Hiring PosterThe Large Synoptic Survey Telescope is seeking scientific, engineering, education, and administrative talent to build "one of the most important scientific experiments in human history".  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 here.

Key positions are available now and in the near future for the construction and eventual operation of this new generation observing facility.  Operating as an AURA Center since 2011, the LSST headquarters are in Tucson, AZ with additional work sites at NOAO (also an AURA Center), the DOE-funded SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, University of Washington, Princeton University, IPAC, and NCSA among others.  All LSST work sites offer exceptional benefits packages and room for professional growth.
