Reminder: Deadline extended to June 20th 2021
The Australian Academy of Science's National Committee for Astronomy is currently seeking expressions of interest (EOI) to serve as Australia's National Outreach Coordinators (NOCs) for the International Astronomical Union (IAU) Office for Astronomy Outreach.

The IAU NOCs are national-level representatives for the IAU Office for Astronomy Outreach (OAO). Members of the network act as a point-of-contact for astronomy outreach for a country or territory. The NOCs (1) implement the IAU outreach initiatives at the national level, (2) disseminate information nationally, and (3) bridge the IAU with local/national communities. In return, the NOCs have the chance to 1) apply to a dedicated funding scheme for the NOCs; 2) represent the IAU at the outreach level in Australia, and 3) access to tailored support and resources provided by the IAU Office for Astronomy Outreach in their annual plans.

Responsibilities and time commitment:
. Attending the NOCs meetings (regional and global) - once every two months;
. Sharing updates of the NOC-related activities a minimum of once per month;
. Answering emails from the national community;
. Deliver an Annual Report and an Annual Plan;
. Join in at least three activities presented in the IAU-outreach Annual Plan.

The term of appointment will be from August 2021 to August 2024.

To apply, please send a (i) copy of your CV and (ii) brief statement of interest to icsu at science.org.au<mailto:icsu at science.org.au> by Sunday June 20th 2021.
