The Fundamental Physics Directorate at SLAC is seeking a Principal Scientific and Engineering Electro-Mech Technician to support the construction of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) Camera. This position reports to camera subsystem engineering manager, with responsibilities for the integration, test and construction of the LSST camera, camera components and assemblies.

The LSST is a new telescope being built in the foothills of the Andes in northern Chile. SLAC is leading the development, design, fabrication, integration, and testing of the Camera for the telescope.

The system will produce a wide-field, deep astronomical survey of over 20,000 square degrees of the southern sky using an 8.4 meter diameter telescope. The Camera includes 3200 mega-pixels of CCD detectors, making it the world's largest digital camera for astronomy. These are cooled to 173 K and housed in an evacuated cryostat, behind a triplet of lenses and interchangeable filters. The entire system is supported and housed in a temperature-controlled environment with a shutter to control exposure.

This position is for a principal scientific and engineering technician to support development efforts of Camera subsystem elements at SLAC. Given the objectives as defined by an engineer, scientist, or supervisor, the Principal S&E Technician exercises discretion and judgment in the selection of designs, methods, materials, and equipment to accomplish the task.
