ASTRO 3D is a $40m Research Centre of Excellence led by Prof. Lisa Kewley. ASTRO 3D is funded over seven years by the Australian Research Council and supported by six collaborating Australian universities - ANU, University of Melbourne, University of Sydney, Swinburne University of Technology, University of Western Australia and Curtin University. Other Australian partners in the Centre include CSIRO, the Australian Astronomical Observatory and National Computational Infrastructure. ASTRO 3D includes collaborations with world leading international institutions.
The ASTRO 3D mission is to produce a comprehensive picture of the evolution of matter, the chemical elements, and ionizing radiation in the Universe from shortly after the Big Bang to the present day. ASTRO 3D trains the next generation of scientific leaders and conducts nationwide education and public outreach programs.
This ASTRO 3D research position will be based at ICRAR/UWA and will focus on the DINGO HI survey (www.dingo-survey.org). As a member of the DINGO team, the researcher will assist with deep spectral line integrations using 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 create the core survey data products for the survey and carry out early science analyses from this ground-breaking survey.
ASTRO-3D actively encourages applications from Women and 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.
