Dear Colleagues,

A generous PhD scholarship funded by Nova Systems at the Curtin University
node of ICRAR is available.  The project is "The Development of a Dedicated
Low-Frequency Passive Radar Array for Space Domain Awareness" and involves
the translation of technologies and techniques out of radio astronomy and
into the area of Space Domain Awareness - the detection, tracking, and
characterisation of Resident Space Objects (RSOs: satellites and space

We are building a dedicated SDA facility at the Nova Systems Space precinct
in South Australia (Peterborough) and the PhD student will be involved in a
range of activities, from assisting with construction and commissioning to
data collection, processing, and analysis.  The student would be based at
Curtin University but would travel to South Australia occasionally, or to
the Nova Systems HQ in Canberra.

Please feel free to circulate to anyone who may be interested.  Although
only Australian citizens are eligible to apply.  The project would suit
individuals out of physics, astronomy, electrical engineering, or computer
science.  The full description and application instructions can be found at:


If you have any questions, please let me know.
