Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for a three-year Postdoctoral Fellowship within the CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (which hosts the Australia Telescope National Facility) science program. This Fellowship provides the opportunity to work with new capabilities in the Australian radio astronomy community, namely the expanded Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) and the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP). The selected Fellow will lead ground-breaking projects in the area of radio polarimetry, using these and other telescopes.

The Fellow will join the rapidly growing and diverse ATNF Science group based in Perth, Western Australia, and will work with Dr George Heald and his team on novel aspects of broadband radio polarimetry. The Fellow will take a leading role in the calibration, scientific analysis, and publication of new survey observations with the MWA and ASKAP. Considering the recent expansion of the MWA, and the ongoing ASKAP Early Science phase, the Fellow will be at the forefront of modern radio polarimetry surveys leading into the era of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA).

A generous discretionary research allowance will be available, together with assistance with relocation and other benefits, including health insurance. CSIRO offers all staff flexible working arrangements as standard. CSIRO actively supports a safe, healthy and enriching working environment for all staff.
