Happy engineers at last week's Society of Women Engineers SWE 2015 conference in Nashville. LSST Optics Engineer Constanza Araujo (back row, 4th from left) joined colleagues from Gemini Observatory, the Space Telescope Science Institute, National Solar Observatory, Large Synoptic Solar Telescope, Thirty Meter Telescope, Giant Magellan Telescope, and European Southern Observatory for a week of technical presentations and professional development. Exciting STEM careers in astronomy exist at all these observatories including lsst.org/hiring.
LSST Project Office

Financial support for LSST 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 LSST 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 LSST camera 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 LSST in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
