The Department of Physics and the Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics (www.okc.albanova.se) at Stockholm University are seeking a highly motivated software developer to create scientific software infrastructure for the international Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC), which aims to make high-accuracy measurements of fundamental cosmological parameters using data from the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) conducted by the Vera C. Rubin Observatory.
The Vera C. Rubin Observatory is a next-generation astronomical facility currently under construction in Chile. Rubin’s LSST will be one of the largest and most comprehensive astronomy surveys of its kind. To take the best advantage of the LSST data, DESC develops new robust, high-throughput software pipelines to simulate, re-process and analyze images and catalogs at LSST scale.
The successful candidate will work alongside scientists in Stockholm and collaborate internationally with scientists in the DESC. Responsibilities of the post holder will include:
