Csiro Postdoctoral Fellowship In Radio Astronomy Surveys

Private Company - Kensington, WA

Government, Defence & Emergency
Source: uWorkin


  • Keen to conduct some of the first ground-breaking all-sky survey research?
  • Like the idea of using CSIRO's latest radio telescope, the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP)?
  • Join the CSIRO team as we broaden our understanding of the radio sky

CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships aim to develop the next generation of future leaders of the innovation system.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will play a key role in Australia's SKA Pathfinder’s (ASKAP's) observatory-led rapid surveys and work with external science teams to explore a wide array of scientific opportunities. The initial goal is to extend the Rapid ASKAP Continuum Survey to cover two more frequency bands and develop a comprehensive source catalogue that covers the full spectrum between 700 MHz and 1.8 GHz. Further research topics could include GHz peaked spectrum sources and their role in galaxy evolution. The Postdoctoral Fellow will work with ASKAP's lead scientist and a wide range of internal and external collaborators. The role also presents a unique opportunity to work with an instrument that has enormous discovery potential with the opportunity for the Postdoctoral Fellow to pursue their own research interests as part of a growing team with wide-ranging expertise.

Your duties will include:

  • Assisting with processing of radio telescope data and investigating ways to improve image quality.
  • Assisting in creating new catalogues of radio sources from large-scale radio survey data.
  • Using ASKAP survey data in conjunction with multi-wavelength data from other observatories to conduct astrophysical research, coordinating follow-up observations as necessary.
  • Carrying out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes.

Salary: AU$86k - AU$94k plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Tenure: Specified term of 3 years

To be considered you will need:

  • A doctorate (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD) in a relevant discipline area, such as astronomy and/or astrophysics. Please note: To beeligible for this role you must have no more than 3 years (or part-time equivalent) of postdoctoral research experience.
  • Experience with standard radio astronomy imaging software and scripting languages (such as CASA and python) running on Linux.
  • Experience with calibration and imaging of radio interferometer data and error identification.
  • High level written and oral communication skills with the ability to represent the research team effectively internally and externally, including the presentation of research outcomes at national and international conferences.
  • A sound history of publication in peer reviewed journals and/or authorship of scientific papers, reports, grant applications or patents.
