CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) manages the Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF), including the Parkes radio telescope, the Australia Telescope Compact Array and the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP). CASS also contributes to the development of the international Square Kilometre Array (SKA), and is a partner institution of the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA).
The CSIRO Science Leader program aims to attract the best researchers from across the globe. In addition to their salary, each Science Leader will be provided with generous operating funds, as well as support for two three-year Postdoctoral Fellowships and two three-year Postgraduate Student top-up scholarships during the first five years of their appointment. The program is directed towards mid-career researchers with 10 to 15 years post-doctoral experience.
This Science Leader will be responsible for carrying out world-class research in astronomy as well as spearheading a new 'Massive Data' effort that leverages CASS’s world-leading expertise in radio astronomy and CSIRO’s involvement in high performance computing and data archiving.
CASS is committed to building a safe and welcoming workplace culture, and to implementing initiatives to improve diversity and equity within our workplace. CSIRO offers a range of flexible working arrangements to support these initiatives.
The successful candidate will be based either at the CASS site in Sydney, Australia or the CASS site in Perth, Australia. Both have a lively research environment, along with access to a large pool of astronomy students nationally and internationally and the possibility of attracting additional post‐doctoral fellows through CSIRO schemes. The position also includes assistance with relocation and other benefits.
