Position no.: 0030516

Salary: $76,057 - $82,331 p.a.  plus 17% superannuation

The Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) project 
(www.aurin.org.au) is an exciting $20m initiative across Australia tasked with 
delivering a state of the art research infrastructure supporting nationwide urban 
and build environment researchers. The project will develop a core framework 
(e-Infrastructure) through which a variety of urban research areas (lenses) will 
be supported. Examples of the kinds of lenses that will be supported include 
supporting researchers interested in health impacts of living in cities, traffic, 
housing, energy and water challenges facing cities, and future city models. Many 
of these challenges are based on the access to and use of a wide variety of 
heterogeneous data sets from a range of data providers across Australia including 
government departments such as the Australian Bureau of Statistics, to 
commercial/utility companies, to research data sets from universities and a range 
of other organisations. The data is itself extremely heterogeneous.

The project requires an experienced software (data) engineer who will work as part 
of a core AURIN e-Infrastructure team in the Melbourne eResearch Group (MEG) at 
the University of Melbourne under the leadership of Prof. Richard Sinnott. The 
individual will, working closely with the AURIN technical team and the AURIN data 
architect, be involved in the design, definition, implementation and support of 
the AURIN data and metadata systems. This includes data access, data 
processing/indexing, data linkage, metadata management and data storage. Many of 
these data sets include geospatial information and the project draws heavily on 
Open Geospatial Consortium standards and their implementation.

Close date: 6 January 2013
