PROJECT ENGINEER, NEXT-GENERATION EVENT HORIZON TELESCOPE, SMITHSONIAN ASTROPHYSICAL OBSERVATORY

EHT is the project that produced the first ever image of a black hole, announced in press conferences worldwide on April 10, 2019. The EHT images emission from supermassive black holes on event-horizon scales, directly testing Einstein’s theory of general relativity in the strong field limit. Our team includes engineers, theoreticians, software developers, astronomers, and imaging algorithm experts. Our goal is to refine our breakthrough imaging in the near term, and advance to making real-time movies of black holes in the longer term.

This position will provide professional project engineering and technical direction to long-range development of game-changing advances in millimeter- and submillimeter-wave very-long- baseline-interferometry (VLBI) astrophysical instrumentation. The Project Engineer will provide leadership regarding technical approach and design methodologies, and ensure technical integrity of the integrated product.
