The ARC staff will support the ALMA users in all the steps of their projects, by helping in

  • using and teaching how to use the ALMA tools for proposal preparation and submission
  • tracking the project status
  • data reduction with CASA
  • archive mining

ARC members expertise in several branches of mm and submm interferometry and in handling large data sets could be requested through tutorials and face-to-face support activities.

Users who request a face-to-face support will find a reference staff member experienced in reducing interferometric data using CASA and versatile in the use of the ALMA tools.

System managers are dedicated to both the software and hardware requirements of the ARC-operations, including the application of GRID technology to ALMA data reduction.

Non-staff members could contribute to the ARC activity by supervising students, by building scientific collaborations with the staff members, or helping with staff members recruitment and funding. If you are interested in contributing to the ARC activities please contact the ARC coordinator.

Students (both undergrad and doc) could ask the staff members for thesis on ALMA subjects to be done in collaboration with the ARC node staff.
