The ADACS Merit Allocation Scheme is accepting EoIs for Semester 2022B

Do you face demanding computing challenges that you could use some advice or assistance with? To accelerate or extend the capabilities of your research programs, the Astronomy Data and Computing Services Merit Allocation Program (ADACS MAP) is accepting Expressions of interest (EoIs) for Semester 2022B.

The deadline for EoI submissions is Friday 29 April 2022.

ADACS MAP represents an opportunity for any Australian astronomer to secure:

  1. Bespoke training in skills related to software development, and/or
  2. Dedicated software development or design effort from skilled software engineers.

If you are interested in engaging this program (for projects delivered delivered in the second half of this year), please lodge your interest as soon as possible.

Submitting an EoI is easy. Send a 1 page pdf to [email protected] with the following:

  1. Project type: a clear indication of whether you are interested in training or software support;
  2. Project Background: a brief (~1 paragraph) statement about the project’s scientific background; and
  3. Project Goals: a concise plain-language description of the problem you are seeking help with (note: we don’t seek suggested solutions or implementation details at this point).

For more details, please consult the Application Guidelines for the ADACS Merit Allocation Program.

ADACS is a collaboration between Swinburne University of Technology and Curtin University. It is funded under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) Program via Astronomy Australia Ltd (AAL).
