RegNet is currently advertising for a Research Fellow position as part of a collaborative project with the ANU Institute for Space (InSpace), which supports Australia’s space capacity.

The Opportunity
The Research Fellow will contribute to a research agenda through a project led by InSpace, which is on the responsible governance of satellite data, including scoping the development of a potential quality and integrity monitoring service for global satellite data and undertaking research on data integrity monitoring and wider governance issues in the space sector.

The successful candidate will also contribute to the strategic vision of the newly established Australian Centre for Space Governance (ACSG), an initiative of InSpace. The mission of the ACSG is to impact national agenda-setting for Australia’s space activities and to support the Australian community to understand and advance Australia’s interests in space in the 21st century. It does so through three key pillars:

  • Serve the nation’s space law and governance needs
  • Provide space law and governance education nationally
  • Produce interdisciplinary research to solve national and global space governance challenges

Our ideal candidate
We welcome applications from scholars with an interest in satellite data governance and a desire to learn more about the challenges and opportunities in the wider field of space governance. Given the nature of the role, the ideal candidate is an independent researcher who embraces interdisciplinary perspectives and works well in small teams.
