The LADUMA team adds new members on the basis of the specific contributions they will make to the survey, following nomination and review by current team members. At present, the two areas in which additional expertise is of greatest interest are:
(a) the design and execution of optical spectroscopic surveys and
(b) computing challenges associated with larger interferometric datasets (e.g. code development, calibration, imaging, archiving, and image-plane analysis).
If you feel you would be able to contribute in one of these areas and are potentially interested in joining the LADUMA team, please contact one of the PIs so that together we can sort out in detail whether and how your experience and interests match up with the survey’s needs.
