AAL seeks applications for Data and Computing Allocation Committee

AAL seeks applications for a new committee to govern the allocation of resources on behalf of Astronomy Data and Computing Services. Astronomy Data and Computing Services (ADACS) is a national initiative created by Astronomy Australia Limited (AAL) for the benefit of all Australian-based astronomers. The over-riding goal of ADACS is to provide astronomy-focused training, support and expertise to allow astronomers to maximise the scientific return from data and computing infrastructure.

Applications
The deadline for applications is Friday 10th November 2017 at 4pm AEST.
AAL expects the committee’s collective expertise to span the breadth of astrophysics, computational techniques and data science areas. AAL is particularly interested in applications from people who have recognised expertise in a relevant area of astrophysics or data science:- demonstrated through publication, awards and/or software.
 
If you consider yourself well placed to contribute to this committee via your expertise and ideas, and share AAL’s vision of wanting Australian astronomers to have access to the best research infrastructure, please email [email protected] with a two A4 page application with:

  • a brief CV,
  • your relevant expertise,
  • any relevant conflicts of interest.
  •  If you wish to be considered for the position of committee chair please make this clear in the application.
