On behalf of the Australian Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) Consortium, Astronomy Australia Ltd (AAL) is inviting applications from suitably qualified Australian-based astronomers to represent Australia on the MWA Board.

Applicants are encouraged to be available to participate in this meeting in person.
