EST PROJECT OFFICE opening positions

EST is a European initiative to design and build a class 4 meter solar telescope to be installed at the Observatories in the Canary Islands. Since its inclusion in the ESFRI roadmap in 2016, the EST has been considered a strategic facility at European level.

In order to carry out the preliminary design programme for EST, its Project Office, based in La Laguna (Tenerife), is currently being set up. The mission of its team is the scientific and technical direction of the project, the design of the telescope at system level (systems engineering) and the preparation and supervision of international calls for the preliminary design of the subsystems.

At the end of this preliminary design phase, the EST Project Office will define the specifications for the subsequent manufacture, including detailed cost estimates and the implementation schedule.

To achieve these goals, the following vacancies have been published:
