SKA preconstruction program
ICRAR is actively engaged in three aspects of preconstruction for the Square Kilometre Array: the Low Frequency Aperture Arrays (for SKA-low, the part of the SKA entirely in Australia), the Science Data Processor (a powerful computing system to produce the images scientists need), and the Central Signal Processor (the computer that combines the signals from all the antennas into the format needed by the Science Data Processor). We're working with our colleagues around the world to help prepare for these important parts of the SKA. Learn more in our news item from the 5th of November 2013.
Now accepting applications for 2015!
ICRAR is looking for talented and hardworking students to study at the postgraduate level in astronomy, radio astronomy engineering or data intensive astronomy. More details.
Join us at the MWA GLEAM workshop - a workshop to discuss priorities and plans for radio galaxies/quasars (AGN) and star formation related research. The workshop will comprise two full days of contributions and discussions, plus an informal ‘discussion day’ to foster increased collaboration across adjacent science interests. More details.
