Position: Research Associate - GNSS Positioning and Navigation
Institution: Curtin University
Department: School of Earth and Planetary Sciences
Location: Perth, Western Australia, Australia
Duties: A rare opportunity exists for a Research Associate, funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) entitled, Tracking Formation-Flying of Nanosatellites Using Inter-Satellite Links. The project will develop a purely kinematic concept exploiting the full capabilities of GNSS carrier-phase measurements for instantaneous precise orbit of the CubeSat’s; and an extension to more complex formation configurations
Requirements: A PhD in geodesy/Space or a closely related scientific/engineering field. Expertise in scientific programming in Matlab, preferably with Python or C languages. Practical and theoretical knowledge of precise GNSS positioning is required and experience in its application in space, e.g. for Leo satellites is desirable. Ability to work with a broad range of people from varying research backgrounds. Strong oral and written communication skills in English. Demonstrated ability to develop experimental plans and pursue novel research approaches. Demonstrated ability to publish the results of scientific research in scientific journals. Demonstrated ability to work independently under minimal supervision while contributing to overall team performance and proven ability to meet performance deadlines during the course of the project

Curtin University is a major global player, with well-integrated campuses in Singapore, Malaysia, Mauritius and Dubai. GNSS Research Group The GNSS Research Group and the School of Earth and Planetary Sciences aims to improve Australia’s capability in utilising the next generation Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and to come to a fullest exploitation of the opportunities created. Your Project A rare opportunity exists for a Research Associate, funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) entitled, Tracking Formation-Flying of Nanosatellites Using Inter-Satellite Links . Formation flying, based on distributed miniaturized satellites, such as CubeSat’s, is envisioned to revolutionise the way the space-science community conducts autonomous missions. The project will develop a purely kinematic concept exploiting the full capabilities of GNSS carrier-phase measurements for instantaneous precise orbit of the CubeSat’s; and an extension to more complex formation configurations. You will be also involved in the use of the satellite based augmentation systems (SBAS) in this application, supporting the future Australian SBAS program, and the development of integrated algorithms for space-based Precise Point Positioning with fixed ambiguities supported by SBAS. Your new role You will work within a team of energetic Geomatics researchers and carry out: Research in GNSS positioning and navigation and its application in space for LEO satellites Research activities including algorithm development, data collection, performance of computations and analysis of results Publication of papers in peer-reviewed journals and conference presentations. You will bring to this role (Selection Criteria) A PhD in geodesy/Space or a closely related scientific/engineering field Expertise in scientific programming in Matlab, preferably with Python or C languages Practical and theoretical knowledge of precise GNSS positioning is required and experience in its application in space, e.g. for Leo satellites is desirable Ability to work with a broad range of people from varying research backgrounds Strong oral and written communication skills in English Demonstrated ability to develop experimental plans and pursue novel research approaches Demonstrated ability to publish the results of scientific research in scientific journals Demonstrated ability to work independently under minimal supervision while contributing to overall team performance and proven ability to meet performance deadlines during the course of the project What we offer you The Faculty of Science and Engineering offers exciting career paths and trajectories including: conducting innovative work that will make real-world difference interactions with and learnings from industry, government and academic partners international recognition Curtin University offers a competitive remuneration and benefits package, a friendly and collaborative work environment, generous leave entitlements, flexible working arrangements, a relocation allowance, generous superannuation, salary-packaging arrangements including childcare, and the potential to support dual-career arrangements.
