    Any jobs going that don’t need a PhD?

    Good luck, applicants – may see you around!

  2. Alice says :

    P.S. The advert should say http://www.galaxyzoo.org, not http://www.galaxyzoo.net, unless we’ve got a .net site I don’t know about πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    He doesn’t have galaxyzoo.net – it is being cybersat by someone from Germany.

    Blimey how things change. My whole career qualifies me for just 1/9th of the role πŸ™‚

    Good to see how quickly citizen science is becoming mainstream. Beats standing in a cold garden with a 6″ reflector, which was citizen science 40 years ago!

    Congratulations to Chris and the teams for steering this to what can only be greater and greater sucess. We need to create a Chair in Citizen Science for Chris – although if we’re true to the democratic ideals of citizen science, maybe we could all have a go at holding the Chair in rotation πŸ˜‰

    Well this is good news! Initial funding has obviously been secured from somewhere on the back of GZ’s success and I see it is one of the postholder’s tasks to secure further funding. Looks like citizen science is here to stay – which pleases me greatly as it’s the nearest I will ever get to scientific research. Well done Team and good luck to those who apply. πŸ™‚

    Oops! I’m afraid I left my Ph.D in my other suit! πŸ˜€

    Is a PhD an absolute requirement? What about MSc in astronomy, several research papers, and twenty years programming experience. Does the technical lead get to choose the framework? You should consider Smalltalk/Seaside.

    When are we going to be introduced to the lucky ones?

    Oh, WHY did I only get a 2:2 at university and bar myself from a PhD? 😑
