Graduate internships:

ICRAR (the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research), through its Curtin University node, the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy, is seeking expressions of interest for a pilot graduate internship program.

We are seeking expressions of interest for paid internships of 6 – 12 months duration (with opportunities for ongoing career development) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Technical Operations, Software/Computing, and Science (astrophysics and space science).

We are looking for students nearing the end of their program of study (postgraduate or honours undergraduate) with an interest in translating their skillsets to radio astronomy and/or aligned activities.

You do not need to be currently undertaking a radio astronomy research project, but skillsets in one or more of the following areas are desirable:

  • applied physics
  • high performance computing
  • mathematics and statistics
  • software engineering
  • data analytics
  • electrical/electronic engineering
  • radio frequency communications
  • systems engineering, space science
  • general technology (robotics, mechatronics, prototyping, fabrication, CAD etc),

…or let us know if you have another skillset that you’d like to apply at ICRAR-Curtin!
