Share the excitement of new space discoveries and join our team! The Space Telescope Science Institute has openings for Research and Instrument Analysts (RIA) in our Instruments Division.
Research and Instrument Analysts (RIAs) will assist Instrument Scientists in the reduction and analysis of Hubble Space Telescope calibration data. Analysts will also assist in the development and testing of the scientific instruments and optical systems for the James Webb Space Telescope. They will provide User Support to HST General Observers and Archival Researchers in various aspects of observation planning and data reduction. Additionally, analysts may become involved in cutting-edge astronomical research by providing support for scientific programs of staff scientists. Such support can involve calibrating data, photometry, spectroscopy, image drizzling, coding, and laboratory work in astronomical instrumentation.
