LSST Interdisciplinary Network for Collaboration and Computing

Job Opportunities

The LINCC frameworks team is expanding!  Below are job opportunities associated with the LINCC frameworks initiative; those hired would join our team.  Stay tuned for more - and sign up for the LINCC mailing list to be notified of new opportunities.

  • Research scientist positions: We do not currently have any research scientist openings. Any future openings will be posted here.

  • Postdoctoral fellowships: We do not currently have any postdoctoral fellowship openings. Any future openings will be posted here.

  • Software engineering positions: The LINCC frameworks team is looking for a software engineer to join the team at the University of Washington (Seattle) and work at the intersection of state of the art computer science and cutting edge astrophysics. The engineers will design and build an analysis framework run on the cloud or high-performance computing (HPC) systems that can store, search, analyze and annotate data of the volume and complexity of the LSST data. This framework will provide an interface for the astronomical community to run real time and batch analyses (e.g. to search for one-in-a-million events in continuous streams of data). Engineers will work with astronomers and scientists to integrate their work into these scalable frameworks. Development will incorporate software best practices such as peer code review, to produce secure, testable, maintainable, and extensible code. Candidates can apply here.
