Job Announcement Text: 

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 position will take a leading research role at ICRAR/UWA in an area in astronomy and astrophysics related to one or more of the research areas of ASTRO 3D. You will have generous travel and research support. Allocation of PhD students and postdoctoral support will be through competitive UWA and national processes. The position is tenurable at UWA with the first four years being funded by ASTRO 3D in the role of ASTRO 3D Fellow. Contributions to advanced teaching will be viewed favourably in this period. After this period, the position will be funded by UWA in an ongoing capacity. There will be UWA teaching and other duties after this period, as directed. You will be expected to offer PhD projects and to supervise undergraduate, Masters and PhD students. You will interact with national and international ASTRO 3D team members, ICRAR staff, and other national and international researchers on projects of fundamental importance. ASTRO 3D research at ICRAR/UWA is focussed on large-scale HI surveys with ASKAP and complementary optical/IR surveys and large-scale cosmological simulations. These projects will help UWA’s aspirations for future engagement in SKA and other major-facility science.

This position is open to female applicants only.

ASTRO-3D actively encourages applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, we value diversity and inclusion and believe employment opportunities must not be limited by socio-economic background, race, religion or gender.
