Scientist/DevOps Position in EScience Section (w/m/d)

In the Supercomputing and E-Science section we work at the interface between excellent astrophysical
research and modern IT systems and software. The section currently has four major work areas: data
management and collaborative research environments (CRE) for astrophysical collaborations and
projects, provision of efficient supercomputing and cloud facilities at AIP, development and
implementation of Virtual Observatory standards, and development of software for data curation and
publication of astronomical data. The AIP is participating in many scientific data infrastructure projects
such as ESCAPE and NFDI, often in collaboration with other science groups or sections.
For creating the 4MOST public archive we are looking for a developer, who works closely with the 4MOST
collaboration. 4MOST is a fibre-fed spectroscopic survey facility on the VISTA telescope surveying the
southern sky in a few years. It will simultaneously obtain spectra of ~2400 objects with a high spectral
resolution. The public archive shall maximise the scientific benefits of the data for the whole
astrophysics community. The tasks require programming skills (python, web technology), knowledge of
RDBMs and SQL, as well as domain knowledge in astrophysics or natural sciences. A university degree
is required.
The appointment will be initially for 24 months, and can start immediately after the selection process is
