CSIRO Science Teacher Scholarship

CSIRO Science Teacher Scholarship

CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science is offering an exciting opportunity to an Australian teacher. The Scholarship at CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) involves a one-week work placement at CASS headquarters at Marsfield, Sydney. You will be working with the PULSE@Parkes team under the Project Coordinator and Education Lead, Robert Hollow and Project Scientist Dr George Hobbs. During this time you will learn about the details of the PULSE@Parkes program and the other work carried out at CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science.

During the initial work placement you will commence development of educational materials to support the program. The exact nature and details of these materials will be decided in consultation with the program team. You will then continue to develop the materials over a period of one school term with regular communication with the Program Coordinator. It is anticipated that you will need to spend 1-2 hours a week to successfully deliver on this activity.

The position includes return travel to Sydney if required and onsite accommodation at Marsfield for the week plus payment of $37.47 per hour for up to 80 hours. There may be potential for the Teacher to remain involved in the PULSE@Parkes program with the possibility of a trip to CSIRO’s Parkes Observatory or Sydney to assist further with the program.
