The Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) project is looking to expand its core team to include a multi-wavelength specialist. The successful applicant will assist in the management of data streams from UV (GALEX), optical (VST), near-IR (VISTA), mid-IR (WISE), and far-IR (HERSHEL) facilities to create a panchromatic dataset of 380,000 galaxies with wavelength coverage from 0.1 to 1000microns and eventually extended to 21cm as part of the Deep HI Neutral Gas Origins (DINGO) survey to be conducted on the Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP). The Research Associate will be expected to join both the GAMA and DINGO teams and lead a high impact science program which use the database to study the combined stellar, gas, and dust properties of galaxies in the nearby Universe and spanning a broad range of environments (filaments, voids, clusters and groups).
The GAMA project is led from the recently established International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research at The University of Western Australia, and aims to combined the latest multi-wavelength data with broad deep spectroscopic data from the Australian Astronomical Observatory. Assistance with relocation expenses (if applicable) will be provided.
The ICRAR modern office complex is situated within UWA’s green leaf campus located on the banks of the Swan river in one of the world’s most liveable cities.
