As a member of the expanding team at the ATNF, you will manage a subset of ASKAP projects within a very challenging timescale, with complex technical and political requirements and extensive internal and external relationships both national and international.

In this matrix organisation, the small team of project managers working on ASKAP report either to the Group Leader Project Specialists or Engineering with specific work activity directed through the ASKAP Project Management Team. Progression into a role with expanded project management scope at a higher salary range is possible for suitably qualified and experienced individuals.

Successful appointees will have extensive experience in all aspects of project management and successful project delivery in a research environment, preferably with specific experience in managing astronomy related projects.
