Curtin is industry-facing, highly engaged with relevant partners, and a major global player, with well-integrated campuses in Singapore, Malaysia, and Dubai. The Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy (CIRA) concentrates its research effort into a range of projects in radio astronomy, including aspects of next generation telescopes. The institute has played a leading role in contributing high-impact engineering and science to the international Square Kilometre Array project. Help us build Curtin's Future. Your new role We are seeking a new Lecturer or Associate Lecturer, funded by the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, to contribute to our research and teaching programs. This position will be focused particularly on scientific exploitation of new extragalactic survey data from the recently-upgraded Murchison Widefield Array (MWA; http://mwatelescope.org/ ); a low-frequency radio telescope for which Curtin University is the lead and managing organisation. You will use your in-depth subject matter knowledge of extragalactic radio astronomy to enable and deliver new scientific publications from processed MWA data products. We particularly welcome applications from candidates with expertise in one or more of our priority science areas: life cycles of radio galaxies, physics of galaxy clusters, detection and characterisation of the cosmic web, and radio source population studies. In addition to data from the MWA, the candidate will have the opportunity to leverage the numerous multi-wavelength surveys Australian astronomers have access to (e.g. Skymapper, ASKAP, GAMA, Taipan) and to exploit Australia’s partnership with the European Southern Observatory (ESO; http://www.eso.org ) to conduct novel research exploiting the synergies between MWA and other multi-wavelength facilities. You will work closely with our established MWA science team, complementing their skills with your experience in radio and multi-wavelength astronomy and obtaining follow-up observations to understand the nature of MWA radio sources. You will work openly and in close collaboration with existing teams from across the 21 MWA partner institutions in delivering new science results from existing and ongoing MWA surveys. You will be widely respected for your collaborative qualities. You will work closely with students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, supervising research projects and contributing to the delivery of appropriate teaching units within the University. You may also have the opportunity to engage with sectors outside academia to translate astronomical skills and tools into end user-facing applications. This position will be based at the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy (CIRA), located on the Bentley Campus of Curtin University. The position will involve liaising with collaborators at MWA partner institutes both in Australia and overseas, and may involve regular travel between these institutes. You will bring to the role Essential Criteria: A doctoral qualification relevant to Physics or Astronomy. A strong research track record of both leading and enabling scientific publications in high-quality peer-reviewed journals, with demonstrated research impact. The technical skills to successfully obtain and exploit relevant data from the MWA and other world-class facilities in pursuit of original science goals. A commitment to open and supportive collaboration and the development of a collegial and supportive working environment. Demonstrated high level communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to interact with students and staff with cross cultural sensitivity. Desirable Criteria: Demonstrated potential to lead and successfully obtain nationally competitive, peer-reviewed grants. Demonstrated experience in analysing and integrating complex multi-wavelength data with radio imaging to understand the astrophysics of extragalactic radio sources. Prior experience in providing mentoring and supervision of undergraduate or postgraduate research students. Prior experience in undergraduate physics or astrophysics teaching, including developing and delivering lectures, laboratory programmes, and group teaching exercises. Prior experience in working with industry, Government, community, or not-for-profit organisations to deliver creative solutions to demand driven research problems or support the core mission and goals of your employer.
