The Australian Astronomical Observatory (AAO) is developing the 
Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) Node of the All-Sky Virtual Observatory 
(ASVO). The AAT ASVO Node must be able to provide an infrastructure to 
host datasets arising from AAT surveys, provide an interface to enable 
users to query the datasets for the purpose of conducting astronomical 
research and provide the formats/requirements necessary for future 
datasets from the AAT or other facilities to which the Australian 
Astronomical Observatory (AAO) provides access. The AAO IT group 
requires 2 experienced database software engineers (ideally one 
experienced back end database expert and one user interface expert) to 
work on the 2 year project.

The positions require a degree in computer science, physics, or a 
related discipline and an understanding of astronomical data/data models 
or similarly complex data sets.

Please circulate this email to anyone that you think maybe interested in 

For all details and how to apply follow the links on the AAO website.
Closing date: 9th April 2015
