The Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in 3-Dimensions (ASTRO-3D) spans six (6) Australian universities, three (3) national infrastructure facilities, and seven (7) international partner institutions. ASTRO-3D combines Australia's leading optical, infrared and radio telescope technologies with sophisticated theoretical simulations and ambitious new data intensive science techniques to build a comprehensive picture of the evolution of matter, the chemical elements, and ionizing radiation in the Universe from the Epoch of Reionization to the present day.

This ASTRO 3D research position will be based at ICRAR/UWA and will focus on the DINGO HI survey ( As a member of the DINGO team, the researcher will carry out deep spectral line integrations with the ASKAP telescope to understand the role HI has played in galaxy evolution over the past 4 billion years.  This project is closely aligned with the GAMA survey (and in future WAVES), enabling a wide range of spectroscopic and multiwavelength analyses.  The researcher will work with DINGO principal investigator, Dr Martin Meyer, and other members of the DINGO, ICRAR, and ASTRO 3D teams to processes data, and carry out early science, from this ground-breaking survey.
