Hi everyone,

Those of you on the ASA mailing list have already seen the following job ad for Leigh's replacement. If you know of anyone with good software skills and (preferably) a radio astronomy background who's looking for a job, please could you forward this announcement to them?

Unfortunately the application process is quite different to what most of us are used to. Applications are received through the web site and it seems candidates are not required to address specific selection criteria or nominate referees! However, I'm happy to provide some more details on the sorts of skills and experience that are required to help candidates write a good application (and make the selection panel's job easier!). So please feel free to pass on my contact details too.

The Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex (CDSCC) is part of
NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) - one of three facilities around the
world that supports interplanetary spacecraft communications and
radio observations for the exploration of our Solar System and
beyond. New missions from many nations signal a busy future in space

Raytheon Australia currently has a unique opportunity for an
energetic and motivated Computer Systems Engineer / Scientist with
preferably practical experience in Radio Astronomy to join our

antenna, RF receiving and data processing equipment. In so doing, the
incumbent is expected to develop a strong working relationship with
local staff and the wider Radio Astronomy community. A Degree in an
appropriate field is required (e.g. Engineering / Physics) and the
position may require occasional international travel.

At Raytheon Australia we seek talented and motivated people and
