Euclid is a European Space Agency (ESA) M-class mission to study the geometry and nature of the dark Universe. It is slated for launch in 2020. The Euclid mission has been optimized for the measurement of two probes sensitive to Dark Energy: (1) Weak Gravitational Lensing, and (2) Galaxy Clustering, including both Baryonic Acoustic Oscillations and Redshift Space Distortions. Euclid will consist of a 1.2m space telescope with two instruments: an optical camera for photometry and a near infrared (NIR) camera that does double duty as a photometer and a spectrometer. NASA will contribute 16 state-of-the-art infrared detectors for the NIR camera.
NASA has established the Euclid NASA Science Center at IPAC (ENSCI) in order to support US-based investigations using Euclid data. ENSCI will participate in the Euclid Consortium’s Science Ground Segment, providing algorithm and software development, participating in data quality assurance, and performing data processing. In addition, ENSCI will support the US research community by providing expert insight into the Euclid surveys, data processes, calibration, and products. For more details, see http://euclid.caltech.edu.
ENSCI anticipates hiring a calibration scientist for a one year term appointment in 2018 to play a leading role in preparing for calibration of the Euclid instruments.
The successful applicant must be prepared to lead Euclid activities at the start of the appointment. Specific tasks will include:
