Applications are invited for an Australian Research Council funded 
Super Science Fellowship to be held in the Centre for Astrophysics 
and Supercomputing at the Swinburne University of Technology. The 
Super Science Fellowships are an Australian Government funded program 
targeted towards outstanding early-career researchers, whom must be 
within 3 years of their PhD award at the time of appointment, and is 
a fixed three year term full-time research position with a generous 
package of salary and research funding.

The Fellow will lead a research program collaborating with Swinburne
astronomers including Karl Glazebrook, Michael Murphy & Emma Ryan-Weber
to research the chemical evolution of the Universe from high to low
redshift;  taking advantage of new optical/IR data on galaxies and QSO
absorbers from large telescopes and making predictions for the next
generation of HI radio surveys from the Australian SKA Pathfinder.
Independent research can also be pursued.

Essential criteria: A PhD in observational astrophysics and a 
background in extra-galactic studies coupled with strong research 
skills and a demonstrated publication track-record in peer-reviewed 
journals. Desirable criteria: experience with high-redshift galaxy or 
QSO surveys and optical and/or near-infrared imaging and spectroscopy, 
excellent oral and written communications skills.

The appointee will join an active research group in Australia's most
rapidly growing astronomy department. Swinburne astronomers regularly
obtain national observing time on the AAT, Gemini, HST, Magellan, ATCA
and Parkes telescopes. They have institutional access to the W.M. Keck
telescopes in Hawaii (15-20 nights per year). The Centre has a
state-of-the-art supercomputer available in house as well as access to
innovative 3D visualization facilities. Melbourne, consistently rated as
one of the most liveable cities in the world, is a cosmopolitan place
with a mild climate and many cultural and sporting events. Mountains,
ocean and wine growing regions are easily accessible. The Centre itself
is located in the diverse inner city suburb of Hawthorn with very good
public transport connections.

Super Science Fellows receive an attractive package: the appointment is
for fixed term for three years at a Lecturer equivalent position (Level
B1). The salary is AUD 72,500 p.a. and the Fellow also receives a AUD
20,000 per year research expenses allowance. By ARC rules the applicant
must usually be within three years of their PhD at the time of their
appointment and must take up the appointment between July and December
2011.

Applications must include a CV, bibliography, statement of research
interests and plans, and contact details of three referees and should be
emailed to Prof Karl Glazebrook at the above address. Please quote
position number 28395. Applications are due by 15th Dec 2010 and are
required in PDF format. Please direct any enquiries about the position
to Prof. Glazebrook and please instruct referees to email their
references direct to Prof. Glazebrook by the deadline.
