CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) and Macquarie University are jointly funding a postdoctoral fellowship to conduct research that will accelerate the detection of gravitational waves using pulsar timing array data sets by improving our understanding of the mass and dynamics of the solar system and its impact on astrophysical measurements. This will require collaborating with pulsar timing and solar system researchers. Expected outcomes directly relate to high precision pulsar timing experiments, gravitational wave searches and in understanding our solar system.
Essential selection criteria include:
The postdoctoral Fellow will be employed by Macquarie University and be based within the Department of Physics and Astronomy, but will work closely with CSIRO staff. Both institutes are within walking distance of each other, are committed to building a safe and welcoming workplace culture, and to implementing initiatives to improve diversity and equity within our workplace.
A discretionary research/travel allowance will be available, together with assistance with relocation and other benefits, including health insurance.
