Trust Fund (Non-Federal), Indefinite
This is an opening for a software developer in the data systems division of the Chandra X-ray Observatory Science Center to work on the Chandra data archive. The archive contains terabytes of data, ensures their integrity, security and uninterrupted access, and provides interfaces for archiving and retrieval to science center operations and Chandra users. The successful candidate will work to extend and maintain the archive functionality and to support its operations. Knowledge required for the position includes proficiency in C++ and Java, experience in SQL/rDBMS, and familiarity with relational database servers, web, and JEE application servers in a Unix environment. Experience in scripting languages (e.g., Python, Perl) are beneficial since parts of the system include code written in these languages. We offer a challenging environment working in partnership with science and data systems operations teams and an existing software development team, to bring Chandra data products and analysis tools to the astronomical community at large.
We will only accept applications on line for this position. To view the complete vacancy announcement and online application procedures, please visit our SAO website.
