Dear Colleagues,

A PhD scholarship is available at Curtin University, for a project that may
be interesting to completing undergraduate students at your institutions
(not just in your physics/astronomy groups).

The project is offered by the Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative (COKI; part
of the Faculty of Humanities) in conjunction with the Curtin Institute of
Radio Astronomy (CIRA; part of the Faculty of Science and Engineering).

The project, "What is excellent Astronomy? Probing disciplinary concepts of
research excellence", is described here, along with application information:


In brief, the study will leverage the existing data assets developed
through the Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative (a combined data set of over
100 million research outputs and millions of researchers) alongside the
unique data available to the astronomy community through the Astrophysics
Data System. It will combine ethnographic examination of astronomy
researchers and research with large scale textual analysis and data science
to develop new tools that dig beyond counting of citations to consider how
researchers and their institutions contribute, and how this differs across
different disciplines.

Questions and enquiries can go to Professor Cameron Neylon at
cameron.neylon at curtin.edu.au
