Liverpool John Moores University owns and operates a 2.0-m robotic telescope (“The Liverpool Telescope”) on La Palma in the Canary Islands. Working with international partners we now intend to build a 4.0m class robotic telescope on the same site. We seek an experienced Systems Engineer to take responsibility for systems engineering aspects of the new robotic telescope and its associated instrumentation. You will develop and maintain the work package breakdown, error and throughput budgets and interface definitions and act as overall design authority in engineering trade-offs. You will also act as the liaison between Scientific and Engineering domains translating requirements and implications as necessary, and between work package partners in engineering matters. The position is based in Liverpool, UK, although travel to international partners will be required at times.
