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). The successful candidate 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. The appointee will work within the relevant science team, and will be expected to interact with other ICRAR national and international researchers who are experts in multiwavelength and theoretical studies.
You will have access to a wide range of observational facilities (including ASKAP and other ATNF facilities, MWA, the AAT, and ESO), as well as to the Pawsey supercomputing centre.
The appointment is fixed term for three years with the potential to transition to an ongoing appointment. Since there may be teaching duties associated with the latter, professional teaching development will be provided.
To be considered for this role, you will demonstrate:
PhD in astronomy, or related field, and experience in radio astronomy.
Ability to work in Western Australia
Experience in extragalactic or Galactic radio astronomy
Excellent publication record.
Excellent oral and written communication skills.
Demonstrated ability to work independently, and ability to work effectively in scientific collaborations
