This article discusses the problems faced in human resource development at astronomical observatories in Malaysia. The development of Islamic astronomy programs and subjects at Malaysian universities has produced graduates with theoretical and practical knowledge of astronomy. However, these graduates are still unable to apply the skills learned in the appropriate place. Therefore, this research aims at identifying issues related to human resource development in Malaysian astronomical observatories. This is a qualitative study using a document analysis approach, interviews, and observations. The findings show that there are several human resource development issues in the observatories. The issues are related to the human resource recruitment system, workload, training and expertise, discipline, and worker commitment. This research is expected to benefit the government and the administration of observatories in Malaysia, indirectly enhancing human resource development at the observatories.
