The NASA-funded CosmicDS team is seeking a part-time astronomy educator/curriculum designer to participate in the development of online resources for teaching data science to the public. Candidates should have experience with software development. If they are familiar with github, open source development or web design, that will be a big plus.

The benefits-eligible position is for 2 years at 0.7 FTE, with the possibility of an extension through December 2025 and is based in Cambridge, MA. Depending on funding availability and fit, the Science Education Department at the Center for Astrophysics may have separate projects that could provide additional work to bring the position closer to full-time.
