Applications are invited for Bolton/CSIRO Fellowships in astrophysics
and/or Square Kilometre Array (SKA) - related strategic research. These are three-year post-doctoral appointments at the ATNF, Australia's premier radio astronomical facility.
Bolton/CSIRO Fellowships may be held at any of the major ATNF locations: the Sydney Headquarters at the Radiophysics Laboratory, the Parkes 64m telescope, or the Narrabri Compact Array. The Parkes telescope has receivers that operate in bands between 70cm and 12mm, including a new 6 GHz multibeam receiver. The Compact Array has a 6km east-west baseline with a 214m north-south spur and operates in six bands between 20cm and 3mm. The ATNF is also working on strategic SKA research and is currently developing a New Technology Demonstrator (NTD) and a science array (xNTD) based on wide field focal plane arrays.
Applicants must have obtained, within the last three years, (or will shortly satisfy the requirements for) a PhD degree in astronomy, astrophysics or related disciplines. The commencement annual salary is in the range of $A58K to $A64K plus benefits. A discretionary research allowance of about $A24K over the three-year term and a relocation allowance are also payable.
Applications should include a completed application form and a curriculum vitae which include a list of publications. Closing date for applications is September 1, 2005.
