At Rubin Observatory, we encourage inclusive and respectful collaboration from individuals with a broad range of backgrounds and perspectives. We dedicate effort to making sure our values are reflected in our words and actions, and we’re always trying to improve.
Rubin Observatory is a center of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA). The observatory itself is located near La Serena, Chile; our administrative headquarters are in Tucson, AZ; and we have additional work sites in various locations. The possibility of remote work is also available for some positions.
Rubin Observatory is a great place to work! We hope you’ll keep an eye out for opportunities to contribute your unique set of skills and experience to our team.
The goal of the Vera C. Rubin Observatory project is to conduct the 10-year Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST). LSST will deliver a 500 petabyte set of images and data products that will address some of the most pressing questions about the structure and evolution of the universe and the objects in it.

Financial support for Rubin Observatory comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded Rubin Observatory Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA). The DOE-funded effort to build the the Rubin Observatory LSST Camera (LSSTCam) is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC). The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future. NSF and DOE will continue to support Rubin Observatory in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
