ULF/ELF/VLF radio technician job vacancy

If you fancy a job engineering radio instrumentation below 10kHz here is your chance. Armargh is in Northern Ireland, which is a truly beautiful part of the British Isles.
A research-technician-grade position is available at the Armagh Observatory funded by the EuroPlanet Research Infrastructure (RI) under the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union (EU). Salary will be in the range £18,486 - £29,719 per annum, the exact figure depending on individual experience.
The primary aim of the project is the construction of a working instrument prototype able to (a) record and store, in digital form, electromagnetic (EM) radiation signals in the ULF/ELF/VLF frequency range (3Hz-30kHz) (b) pick up naturally-occurring radiation while screening/filtering out manmade interference in this frequency range (c) be optimised for the high-quality reception of radiation thought to originate from meteors in the Earth's upper atmosphere. In addition, the equipment should be capable of operating in the field and at remote sites with a high degree of autonomy.
