|Job Type:||Full Time|
- Play an integral role in supporting SKA operations in Australia
- Coordinate and manage requirements for office and accommodation facilities
- Represent CSIRO in the engagement and support of key clients
CSIRO is playing a lead role in the development of the world’s largest radio observatory, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), which will be co-located in Australia. The SKA will address fundamental unanswered questions about our Universe including how the first stars and galaxies formed after the big bang, how dark energy is accelerating the expansion of the Universe, the nature of gravity, and the search for life beyond Earth. The SKA-Low telescope will be built at CSIRO’s Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO), approximately 300km inland from Geraldton in Western Australia. The MRO is a world-class radio observatory that already hosts telescopes including the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder and the Murchison Widefield Array. The MRO Site Entity manages the MRO site on behalf of the occupants and assists in the preparation of the various locations that host the Australian SKA, to ensure readiness for construction and operations.
As the MRO Senior Projects Officer, you will assist CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) to coordinate with the SKA Observatory (SKAO) and the Australian Government. Supporting the SKA operations in Australia, your key focus will be in the preparation of requirements for office and accommodation facilities.
