A principal component of the ADACS initiative is to empower the astronomy community to harness the potential of the next generation telescopes and astronomy simulations. Internships and hands-on experience are essential parts of our training services. They aim to give users with intermediate to advanced level of computing expertise the hands-on experience required to progress their skill further or seek alternative career paths (if they choose to do so).

The first round of this internship program aims to give the successful applicants a realistic experience of working in a professional software development environment. In addition to the technical experience to be gained from working on two first-class computational (OzSTAR) and visualization (CAVE2) facilities, the applicants will have first-hand experience of working in an Agile project management framework.

The first round of this program is a collaboration between ADACS and:

  • Monash Immersive Visualization Platform – Monash University
  • Advanced Visualisation Laboratory – Swinburne University
  • Swinburne Data Science Research Institute (SDRIS)
