Information on NRC Herzberg staff and their research interests is available at http://bit.ly/2aoT8tf

Proposed start date: Summer 2017

A Research Associate is required to work on adaptive optics (AO) research, as part of the National Research Council of Canada’s Herzberg Astronomy and Astrophysics Portfolio (HAA) Adaptive Optics (AO) Team. The HAA-AO Team is currently involved in a number of international projects, which include the Gemini Planet Image (GPI) and the Narrow Field Infra-Red AO System (NFIRAOS), the first light Multi-Conjugate AO (MCAO) system for the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT). The GPI instrument is in operation but will soon require upgrades. The NFIRAOS project is in its final design phase. In addition, the AO Team is also engaged in an ambitious R&D program focussed on advanced wave-front sensing and wide-field AO.

To support these activities, the HAA-AO Team has developed an extensive laboratory infrastructure (AO Lab), which currently includes two optical benches. The first is an MCAO bench called Herzberg NFIRAOS Optical Simulator (HENOS). HENOS is a scaled down model of NFIRAOS and is used develop and validate the control algorithms, the calibration procedures, and the post-processing software that will be implemented in NFIRAOS. The HENOS bench includes simulated natural and laser guide stars, simulated atmospheric turbulence, two deformable mirrors, one Shack-Hartmann wave-front sensor (WFS), one pyramid WFS and a science camera. The second bench is dedicated to exploring novel wave-front sensing techniques, including pyramid WFSs and non-linear techniques such as phase diversity. Plans are also in the works to deploy a third bench dedicated to high-contrast imaging. The HAA-AO Team engages with graduate students (typically three to four at any given time) from the University of Victoria and elsewhere in Canada, who use the AO Lab to carry out their research projects.

The Research Associate will play a key role in using the AO Lab to carry out original AO research, developing its capabilities and coordinating the work of the graduate students. He/she will also be expected to support on-going projects such as NFIRAOS by providing critical AO-related analysis to help progress designs.

Applicants must have acquired their Ph.D. within the last five years or expect to obtain their degree before taking up the position. Applications should be made by 10 February 2017 via the process described at the URL provided.

NRC is an equal opportunity employer.
