ICRAR is a great place to work, and we encourage you to apply for any vacancy that you are suitably qualified for.
|Project Officer (Outreach and Communications)||492449||UWA||04-JUNE-2013|
The International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) is a State funded Centre established as a joint venture between The University of Western Australia and Curtin University. The Centre, along with CSIRO, is playing a key role in the $3.0 billion international Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project.
Connecting with the broader community, promoting uptake and participation in science and communicating our research is an integral part of ICRAR's work. Our team of professional science communicators, with the help of our researchers and postgraduate students, deliver a plethora of outreach and education activities throughout the year, across the country and beyond.
Whether it's the person on the street, the teacher in the classroom or the student about to head off to university, our public lectures, community observing events, school programs, and extensive online presence ensure we are reaching audiences across the spectrum.
In the three and a half years since launch, more than 50,000 people have interacted directly with ICRAR outreach programs, with many more engaging through the distribution of educational resources and our strong online presence. ICRAR has achieved this level of outreach success by developing robust collaborative relationships with others, consistently delivering high quality outcomes through training, as well as supporting and involving our researchers in the programs we provide.
ICRAR is seeking an excellent team player that is highly organised and motivated to work with our Outreach & Education team.
To discuss or clarify any aspects of the position please contact our Outreach & Education Manager, Pete Wheeler on 6488 7758
