Our Research & Development (R&D) department handles the technical facilities to enable astronomical research. Research & Development is making discoveries in Radio Astronomy possible.
You will work with approximately 60 highly trained professionals in R&D. You will work on different technical challenges in one of the following competence groups:
- Digital and Embedded Signal Processing
- System Design & Integration
- Technical Support
Your work focuses on the (further) development of innovative instruments for the current telescopes. Besides your work focuses on the development of new technologies for future research facilities.
In a careful managed process R&D develops an idea into a concept. After this the elaboration of the concept into a prototype or instrument takes place. External parties (e.g. national and international universities and companies) are often invited to collaborate in this process.
