Research Scientist II
The Center for High Angular Resolution Astronomy (CHARA) at Georgia State University (GSU) is seeking applicants for an optical laboratory scientist position. CHARA operates the CHARA Array, an optical/IR, long baseline interferometer located at Mount Wilson Observatory (www.chara.gsu.edu). It is the most powerful instrument of its kind for making images of distant stars. The Array collects the beams from six telescopes, uses a laser metrology system to correct for path length differences, applies adaptive optics corrections for non-common path errors, and then sends the light into an optical laboratory with five beam combiners with differing wavelength coverage and spectral resolution.
PhD and five years of related experience; or a combination of education and related experience.
