The Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy invites applications for five postdoctoral research associates/fellows specialising in either low frequency radio astronomy or accretion science.  CIRA operates the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA – a precursor to the Square Kilometre Array) and supports a large allied research team plus a growing expertise in accretion and jet physics.  In summary these positions are 
• Research Associate/Fellow MWA Science (including 30% science support), 5-year term, contact Professor Carole Jackson (carole.jackson at curtin.edu.au)
• Research Associate: MWA extragalactic survey science, 3-year term contact Professor Carole Jackson (carole.jackson at curtin.edu.au) 
• Research Associate/Fellow MWA massive and powerful galaxies, 5-year term, contact Dr Nick Seymour (nick.seymour at curtin.edu.au)
• Research Associate/Fellow, X-ray binaries and radio transients, 5-year term, contact Dr James Miller-Jones (james.miller-jones at curtin.edu.au) 
• Research Fellow, stellar-mass quiescent black holes, 3-year term, contact Dr James Miller-Jones (james.miller-jones at curtin.edu.au)

Curtin University is Western Australia’s largest university and is engaged in a broad portfolio of teaching and research activities.  The Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy (CIRA) was founded in 2008 and is focussed on supporting the SKA to the benefit of Western Australia, Australia and the wider international community. CIRA now comprises more than 50 staff and PhD students, primarily focused on radio astronomy research, but also spanning many other aspects of observational astronomy, radio astronomy engineering, applications of high performance computing in astronomy and astrophysics theory (including simulation). CIRA forms one half of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) Joint Venture with The University of Western Australia and is also a node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO). CIRA researchers have excellent linkages with these and many other national and international groups, coupled with excellent access to the new $80M Pawsey Supercomputing Centre.

Allowances to cover relocation expenses, computing (setup) and approved travel for e.g. observing, national and international meetings will be available on a discretionary basis. 

Applications must be submitted through the Curtin University web site links given above.  Please note that applicants interested in more than one position must apply for each separately as the selection processes will be independent. 

CIRA is committed to improving equity and diversity and we encourage applications from all qualified candidates. 

Closing date: 12 December 2014, 5pm Perth, WA (0900 UT, Friday 12 December 2014)
