CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships aim to develop the next generation of future leaders of the innovation system.
As human populations continue to expand and pressures on coastal and marine resources increase, environmental conflict is becoming pervasive across many sectors. Effective solutions need to be based on deeper understanding of socio-ecological systems, including interactions between the attitudes of individuals, societal conflict, and policy interventions.
The successful candidate will collect and analyse data on community values and attitudes, with the aim of identifying and testing strategies for reducing stakeholder conflict. You will form part of an innovative team developing social network models to inform management and policy across a range of high-profile issues.
Your duties will include:
- Collecting key socio-ecological datasets relevant to contested issues in the blue economy.
- Undertaking analyses to identify drivers, trends and key influencers of coastal and marine socio-ecological conflicts.
- Contributing to the development and application of social network models simulating community attitudes and development of socio-ecological conflict.
- Evaluating management strategies and policies aimed at reducing stakeholder conflict.
- Carrying out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes.
