Bring your passion for what you do and join the Science Operations and Engineering Division (SCOPE) team at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI). STScI is the science operations center for several NASA missions. SCOPE is responsible for preparing, planning, and scheduling the science, engineering and calibration observations for the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), the future James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), launching in 2021 and Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope (Roman), launching in the mid-2020s. You will work with a team that is passionate about the work they do in supporting scientific discovery by astronomers from around the world.
The Proposal Definition Tools (PDT) Team
STScI is looking for a PDT Team Manager to provide leadership, supervision, technical direction, staff development, and mentorship to a diverse team of software engineers, and test engineers. We are looking for a strong background in software application development and staff management.
The PDT team is responsible for the development, design, support and operational maintenance of two software applications. The Exposure Time Calculator (ETC) application provides observatory users with the ability to determine the exposure times needed to achieve the necessary signal to noise to perform the desired science. The Astronomer’s Proposal Tool (APT) application allows users to prepare their science, calibration, and engineering programs. APT also supports program changes throughout the program’s life-cycle.
