The International Astronomical Union (IAU) Office for Astronomy Outreach (OAO) is a hub for coordinating astronomy public outreach activities around the world, and was established following the success of the International Year of Astronomy 2009. The aim is to make it easier for the public to access information about our Universe and local and global astronomy events, while building networks to support and disseminate information to the amateur astronomy and public outreach communities. The IAU OAO is located at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ), Mitaka Campus, Tokyo, Japan.

The IAU and NAOJ now seek an excellent individual to join the OAO supporting the IAU International Outreach Coordinator (IOC) to carry out OAO mission. The IAU Assistant Outreach Coordinator will be appointed according to the normal conditions of service of the NAOJ employees and will report formally to the IAU-IOC and Director-General of the NAOJ.
