Come work with us as we build, commission and operate the SKA-Low Telescope in Australia

Hi everyone,

The SKA Observatory and CSIRO are recruiting three West Australian-based leadership positions for the SKA-Low Telescope. Applications close on 30 Jan.

More than a dozen partner countries and over a thousand scientists and engineers around the world are already part of the international SKA collaboration: this is a unique opportunity to join a next-generation radio telescope in the early part of its journey. In Australia, SKAO is collaborating with CSIRO to operate the SKA-Low Telescope, which will be built at CSIRO’s Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory. SKAO and CSIRO employees will work together to support construction and telescope operations.

Current opportunities
SKAO and CSIRO are recruiting three key SKA-Low leadership positions:
