We have a staff of highly qualified science, engineering, and IT professionals. Their activities range from cosmological studies to learn more about the birth of the universe to examining anthropogenic changes in Earth systems. Our personnel published hundreds of peer-reviewed papers every year. We have scientists in the field who support research operations around the world, and engineers in laboratories who are building and preparing the next generation of space-based instruments. Our IT staff specializes in high-performance computing, systems administration, and network security. We create and implement data systems and applications to manage, archive, and distribute critical data.
