Hiring Campaign

LSST E-News : 

LSST is taking the show on the road with an energetic new hiring campaign aimed at attracting a diverse and talented team to lead the project into its official construction phase. Equipped with a newly-designed website and a proactive recruitment strategy, LSST team members recently attended the American Astronomical Society Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts, and the SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation conference in Montréal, Quebec, Canada, personally interacting with top scientists, engineers, educators and administrators in fields related to telescope construction and operation. Through active outreach efforts, word-of-mouth and a strong online presence, LSST is seeking highly-skilled individuals to join the project at this critical and exciting time in astronomical history.

The LSST Hiring Campaign website will be updated to show new positions as they become available. There are 12 open positions as we go to press with this issue of E-News.
