We are seeking one or more experimentally adept postdocs to assist with the refinement of LSST precision photometric calibration hardware, and to work with our group on the commissioning of the LSST system. Tasks include the implementation of measurement schemes for the precise determination of instrumental throughput vs. wavelength, and the determination of the optical transmission of the atmosphere. Candidates should expect to spend extended amounts of time in Chile with hands-on commissioning of the LSST systems. Please send application materials and three letters of recommendation to email@example.com. Harvard is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will be considered for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
About Harvard University Department of Physics
The Department of Physics at Harvard is large and diverse in its research interests. With 10 Nobel Prize winners to its credit, the distinguished faculty of today engages in teaching and research that spans the discipline and defines its borders, and as a result Harvard is consistently one of the top-ranked physics departments in the nation.
The Department's greatest resources are the people that fill its classrooms, labs, and offices, as well as state-of-the-art facilities. For undergraduate concentrators, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers, Harvard features a complete range of opportunities to engage in world-class physics from theoretical to the experimental.
Research in the Department seeks to explore and explain fundamental questions that range from understanding the origin of the universe, including string theory, cosmology, and astrophysics, to understanding the visible world of colloids and the world on an ever diminishing scale, from the mesoscale to the nanoscale, condensed matter, and atomic, molecular and particle physics.
