We are looking for a highly motivated and suitably qualified candidate to join the science team at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR). You will work on aspects of observational radio astronomy which have strong connections with ongoing research activity at ICRAR which includes, but is not limited to, ASKAP neutral hydrogen surveys (namely WALLABY, DINGO, FLASH and GASKAP), radio continuum and polarisation surveys with ASKAP (namely, POSSUM and EMU) and MWA, and studies with other SKA pathfinder telescopes. The aim of the research will be to contribute to the understanding of the formation, evolution and interactions of galaxies, and the role of environment in their ongoing evolution.
Depending on your research interests, your research will either be self-driven, or will be team-driven. In either case, you will be expected to interact with other ICRAR national and international researchers who are experts in radio astronomy, multiwavelength and theoretical studies.
To be considered for this role, you will demonstrate:
PhD in a field relevant to radio astronomy
Experience in extragalactic or Galactic radio astronomy, attested by a good publication record
Excellent oral and written communication skills
Ability to work independently, show initiative and work productively as part of a team
Experience in the analysis of radio astronomy data
Experience with computer programming/scripting (e.g. python)
Experience with supercomputing environments would be an advantage
Full details of the position’s responsibilities and the selection criteria are outlined in the position description.
