Now Hiring: ATA Project Manager
The SETI Institute is seeking a term-appointment (at least 18 months at approx. part time) project manager to oversee the upgrade of the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) radio telescope in Northern California. The ATA's primary application is to discover artificial signals coming from outside of our solar system indicating extra-terrestrial intelligence, and additionally to study and discover astronomical anomalies. The ATA was commissioned in 2003 and the planned upgrade will increase the observing speed of the array by a factor of 2x to 10x through replacement of receivers on all 42 antennas. The Project Manager (PM) will lead the manufacturing of the new receivers, and the subsequent installation on ATA antennas.
