Curtin University Research Fellowship opportunities

The Curtin University Research Fellowship scheme aims to attract high quality post doctoral researchers with excellent potential for providing future academic and research leadership at the University.

Applications are encouraged in the field of astronomy and astrophysics research, to take up positions in the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy (CIRA).  CIRA is a research group comprised of over 50 staff and PhD students, focused primarily on radio astronomy but spanning all observational astronomy, radio astronomy engineering, applications of high performance computing in astronomy, and astrophysics theory (including simulation).  CIRA comprises one half of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) Joint Venture with The University of Western Australia and is a node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO).  

A clear focus for CIRA research programs is the path to the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), including the scientific exploitation of SKA pathfinders and precursors, such as the CIRA-led $50m Murchison Widefield Array (MWA), and a leading role in SKA pre-construction activities over the next three years.  In particular, the MWA is about to enter its full science operations phase and many opportunities exist for participation in this program.  CIRA researchers have excellent access to the new $80m Pawsey supercomputing Centre.

CIRA researchers collaborate widely and are well resourced for participation in national and international projects.

The call for applications in 2013, for commencement in 2014, refers to a targeted research-only fellowship with two streams:

1. Early Career Researcher Fellowship: Suitably qualified applicants who received their PhD on or after 1 March 2008;

2. Senior Research Fellowship: Suitably qualified applicants with more than five years post-doctoral experience.

Applications Open: Friday 7th June 2013
Applications Close: Monday 5th August 2013 at 5:00pm GMT+8:00

Potential applicants should contact CIRA co-Director Prof. Steven Tingay (s.tingay at curtin.edu.au) for more information and guidance on the application process.  The following URL provides links to the application forms, call for applications, and scheme guidelines:
