Call for nominations for the ADACS TAC

AAL is currently seeking nominations for the ADACS TAC committee. One vacancy has become available on this committee.
Astronomy Data and Computing Services (ADACS) is a national initiative created by 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. 
The ADACS Time Allocation Committee (ADACS TAC) is an AAL committee, with the purpose of allocating data and computing expert service resources to the astronomy community, primarily through a call for applications and a merit-based evaluation of those applications. Members of ADACS TAC are experts recognised in their fields through their personal records of achievement (e.g. publication in highly ranked journals, awards and/or software etc.). AAL expects the collective expertise of ADACS TAC to span the breadth of astrophysics, computational techniques and data science areas. 
Please see this PDF for more information.
If you consider yourself well placed to contribute to this committee via your expertise and ideas, and share AAL’s vision of wanting Australian astronomy to be world leading and publicly valued, please email [email protected] with a maximum three-page application that includes:
  • A covering letter describing your relevant expertise 
  • A brief CV 
  • Any relevant conflicts of interest. 
Please do not hesitate to contact Dr James Murray, Director of Programs, if you have any questions regarding this position. 
Applications close on Friday 18th August 2023. Late applications will not be accepted. 
AAL is committed to equity and diversity and encourages applications from everyone with the appropriate expertise and skills.
