Job Announcement Text: 

The Experimental Astrophysics Group at the Space Sciences Laboratory (UC Berkeley) is seeking a suitably qualified person to provide a supporting role in the research effort required to develop electro-optical detection systems for subsequent use on NASA space missions. This work will mainly involve supporting all aspects of the design specification,assembly, calibration and integration of  ultraviolet photon counting sealed-tube and open face detector systems and the associated vacuum fabrication facility. In addition, the position will also involve supporting researchers in the development of suitable ultraviolet photocathode materials for such detectors. This position requires demonstrated skills in working with electro-mechanical devices required for space-borne science instrumentation, and knowledge of high vacuumsystems and clean room procedures.

A minimum of a bachelor's degree with a major in electrical, mechanical engineering or the physical sciences is required. Strong familiarity with space electro-optical devices and vacuum deposition systems, with demonstrated work experience on previous NASA/ESA/sounding rocket space science missions is highly desirable. Salary will be commensurate with experience in the $60K - $90K range.

Included Benefits: 

Normal University of California health and retirement benefits are included.
