Dear ASA colleagues,

Curtin University awards a number of Curtin Research Fellowships at both Senior and Early Career Researcher levels each year. We would like to encourage applications in a range of areas in astronomy and astrophysics as well as radio astronomy engineering to join us at CIRA (astronomy.curtin.edu.au<http://astronomy.curtin.edu.au>)

Areas of interest include

* Low frequency radio astronomy, in particular areas of interest for the Murchison Widefield Array and the low frequency SKA;
* Theoretical astrophysics;
* Research into X-ray binary systems;
* Multi-messenger astrophysics;
* Radio astronomy engineering and instrumentation;
* Data intensive research cooperating with experts in the Curtin Institute for Computation (http://computation.curtin.edu.au)

Applications are now open and close on 8 August, for commencement in 2017.  Full details on the application process can be found at:

Curtin University’s Institute of Radio Astronomy forms one half of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), a joint venture between Curtin University and The University of Western Australia. Curtin University operates the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA), the precursor to the low frequency component of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA),  and supports a large research group spanning radio astronomy (galactic, extragalactic), pulsars, accretion physics, studies of the Epoch of Reionisation (EoR), and radio astronomy engineering research including significant participation in developing systems for the SKA.

I am more than happy to discuss this opportunity with interested applicants. Please contact me at carole.jackson at curtin.edu.au<mailto:carole.jackson at curtin.edu.au>
