HiRISE (uahirise.org) is hiring two Spacecraft Operations Engineers to work at the HiRISE Operations Center on the University of Arizona's Tucson campus. This is a full-time position working with HiRISE team scientists and JPL and other MRO instrument operations staff to plan and command high resolution images of Mars.
Apply via the University of Arizona's UACareers job posting:
(job number A21171)
Some details (see full posting at the link above):
The Lunar and Planetary Laboratory (LPL) has an opening for a Science Operations Engineer to work on the NASA-funded project “High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment” (HiRISE). The HiRISE instrument is flown on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) and has been in operations at Mars since March 2006.
The successful candidate will become part of the HiRISE uplink operations team, which is responsible for instrument commanding. Assuming continued success of the MRO spacecraft and a functioning instrument while in orbit around Mars, the HiRISE project will likely continue through 2018 and beyond. For more information, see http://uahirise.org.
The successful candidate will support HiRISE personnel in carrying out operational activities including the following: Plan observation sequences and perform command load generation for HiRISE. Interact and collaborate with HiRISE and MRO scientists and technicians to choose targets and plan the observation sequences in detail, including choosing camera settings with a detailed understanding of the MRO mission, the HiRISE camera and Mars. Verify that the imaging carried out during a planning cycle was properly commanded, identify potential problems, and implement solutions. An educational background in geosciences or remote sensing, or experience with flight operations for remote sensing instruments is preferred. Due to federal regulations, the position is restricted to U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents.
Interested candidates can contact me directly for information, but must apply online. Please pass along!
