If you are an experienced engineer with a strong foundation in systems engineering or a closely related field, and are excited to expand your skill set, we would like to speak with you.
We are particularly interested in engineers with hands-on experience consolidating the technical requirements of a multi-faceted, multi-national project into a comprehensive design package. Experience and ability to develop engineering requirements in clear and concise written and or verbal reports is a necessity. Previous astronomical observatory, national lab, or aerospace experience and exposure to large scale projects and the requirements and documentation that go along with a large project are highly desirable.
The Systems Engineer position is based at CFHT Headquarters in beautiful Waimea on the Big Island of Hawaii. The position requires intermittent travel, including internationally, and periodic trips to the summit observatory.
