VACANCY - Traineeship – Electronics Technician

Traineeship opportunities for aspiring electronics technicians exist for two motivated individuals at the Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF,) CSIRO, based at our Radio Astronomy Research laboratory in Marsfield, a suburb of Sydney. This laboratory is involved in the development and construction of millimetre, microwave and RF electronics, some of which are used in ultra low noise cryogenically cooled receivers, and high speed digital and analogue signal processing systems. The duration of traineeship will be up to four years depending upon current course progress towards an Advanced Diploma or equivalent in the field of electronics.

As one of the worldÂ’s leading astronomical facilities, the ATNF has an international reputation for the successful development of astronomical instrumentation both for its own telescopes and for other international observatories. It operates two major radio telescope sites at Narrabri and Parkes with a smaller telescope near Coonabarabran, and is currently engaged in delivering the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP), the next generation radio astronomy facility to be built in Western Australia.

Applicants should have a good secondary education record and preferably have completed the first year of an Advanced Diploma or equivalent in the field of electronics. Also required are good oral and written communication skills, a positive approach to work with a strong team focus, willingness to learn, adaptability and a high level of manual dexterity. Successful applicants will be expected to travel to other ATNF sites for periods of work activity outside of course times.
