The ngVLA project is hiring a Science Support Research Associate, a call for proposals in the fourth of a series of the ngVLA Community Studies ProgramCommunity Studies Program will be opened and the ngVLATown Hall will take place on December 16, 2020.
The ngVLA project is hiring a Science Support Research Associate. The successful candidate will be an essential part of the ngVLA effort as the project develops its Conceptual Design for consideration as an NSF Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction candidate. Primary focus of this scientific research associate position will be to continue the development of the science operations concept for the facility, derive associated requirements for the science-facing software systems, and support the development of detailed use cases for system simulations and tests, in addition to having your own independent research time. Please apply for this position here. The deadline for receipt of applications is December 15, 2020 at 23:59 ET. For further questions about the position, please contact email@example.com.
As the ngVLA Project heads towards the completion of its Conceptual Design, the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) is pleased to announce this call for proposals in the fourth of a series of the ngVLA Community Studies Program. See full call here.
These Community Studies are designed to further develop the most pressing science questions that can
be addressed by the next-generation centimeter- and millimeter-wavelength radio telescope, the next-generation Very Large Array (ngVLA). As with previous rounds, it is expected that all accepted Community Studies efforts write up their findings as part of a peer-refereed journal article or ngVLA memo, and present their progress/final results at an appropriate science meeting, such as the 2022 Winter AAS. Consequently, it is anticipated to be able to fund most formally accepted proposals at a modest level to
offset possible travel expenses to present results as well as for page charges from publications expected to result from the study. Furthermore, it is expected to fund a small number of these Community Studies at a more significant level (up to $30,000 per award) through the ngVLA Community Studies Grants (CSGs) program. A full description of the program and a list of past awards can be found here.
The ngVLA Project Office invites you to participate in a Town Hall on the ngVLA Project status. This forum will provide background on the next round of ngVLA Community Studies, a funding opportunity for the community further develop the most pressing science questions that can be tackled by the ngVLA; an update on recent technical development highlights; and the schedule for FY21 as the Project works to
complete the ngVLA Conceptual Design. There will also be ample time for
