Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy co-director Steven Tingay has been seconded to the Italian National Institute of Astrophysics to serve as the founding director of its new radio astronomy observatory.

INAF’s radio observatory was formed following the recent merger of three existing Italian radio observatories.

The position has a three-year tenure, after which time Professor Tingay is expected to return to Curtin.

Professor Tingay has been a deputy director of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, a joint venture between the University of Western Australia and Curtin University, since 2009.

He founded CIRA in 2007, and is director of the Murchison Widefield Array project.
