Network Engineer - SKA-Low Telescope

Updated: 3 months ago

The SKA Observatory (SKAO) is a next-generation radio astronomy facility that will revolutionise our understanding of the Universe and the laws of fundamental physics. Enabled by cutting-edge technology, it promises to have a major impact on society, in science and beyond.

In Australia, the SKAO is collaborating with CSIRO to operate and support the construction of the low frequency telescope (SKA-Low) in remote Western Australia on Wajarri Yamaji Country.

The Traditional Owners and native title holders, the Wajarri Yamaji, have gifted CSIRO with the traditional name Inyarrimanha Ilgari Bundara for the CSIRO Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory, home to the SKA-Low telescope. The traditional name means ‘sharing sky and stars' in the Wajarri language.

The SKA-Low Network Engineer will be responsible for the deployment, configuration, and support of the networking infrastructure of the SKA-Low Telescope and the Engineering Operations Centre (EOC) in Geraldton. This position will work alongside the SKAO’s Network Architect, Computing Infrastructure Lead, other domain specialists, project managers and system engineers to ensure the networks for the SKA-Low Telescope are fit for purpose, providing the quality needed for a system that will have to last, and be continually developed, for decades.

We currently have two Network Engineer positions available with one in Perth and one in Geraldton, Western Australia.
