We are in search for a qualified individual to join the wide-field spectroscopic survey group at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR).
The successful applicant will contribute towards the science exploitation of Galaxy and Mass Assembly Survey (GAMA), the observing of Deep Extragalactic VIsible Legacy Survey (DEVILS), the planning for Wide Area VISTA Extra-galactic Survey (WAVES) and assist in the development of the 4MOST redshift, continuum, and line measurement pipeline (4XP). In doing so, the applicant will become a core member of all three surveys with full data access and authorship rights to GAMA, DEVILS, and WAVES publications. The candidate will lead a research campaign, around these surveys, with a focus on galaxy evolution and dark matter constraints through the study of groups, mergers, star-formation, energy, and structure over all cosmic time. In addition to the above spectroscopic surveys, the group is also involved in a number of imaging programs with opportunities for involvement, these include: eROSITA, DINGO, WALLABY, EMU, TAIPAN, HECTOR, JWST, LSST, MSE, Euclid, and WFIRST.
To be considered for this role, you will demonstrate:
Have a PhD in a field relevant to optical extragalactic astronomy
Experience in extragalactic astronomy (esp. Galaxy evolution) attested by a good publication record
Experience in redshift determination (spectroscopic and/or photometric)
You will be a highly motivated individual with an ability to work independently, show initiative and work productively as part of a team. Previous experience in observing in optical spectroscopy, in development of spectroscopic pipelines for redshifting and/or continuum/line- fitting, and in galaxy group finding using spectroscopic surveys will be highly desirable.
Applications MUST be submitted via the UWA Recruitment link ONLY.
