We seek individuals with expertise from a broad range of scientific and engineering fields that can be applied to novel quantum technologies. We encourage applications from theoreticians, computer scientists, physicists, engineers, biologists, materials scientists, and entrepreneurs. Beyond your research skills, we welcome applicants with experience or interest in entrepreneurship and industry engagement to develop future applications and use cases for quantum technologies.
You will have either completed a PhD, Master of Science or Master of Engineering in a science, engineering, or research discipline relevant to Quantum Technology and have three years relevant work experience. Or, you will have completed a PhD, Master of Science or Master of Engineering qualification within the last three years or will have a doctoral or master thesis submitted prior to commencement with CSIRO.
For Master of Science or Master of Engineering graduates you must also have equivalent levels of original and significant contributions to research and development to that expected of a new PhD graduate.
Your qualifications are essential for the current opportunities, but we are also looking for more unique skills to bring new ways of thinking, problem solving and leadership to contribute to CSIRO quantum priority areas and culture.
How we deliver progress and change are important.
An ability to recognise and exploit opportunities to carry out original, creative, and innovative research is essential. Your design thinking and desire to generate impact will drive creativity, innovation and evolve our approach to unlocking a better future for everyone.
By thinking beyond specific research projects to apply individual knowledge, skills, and expertise you will contribute to and support the national innovation system.
Leveraging a broad network and relationships within national, global, trans-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder environments and collaborating with a diverse range of stakeholders, you will challenge current approaches and develop future research.
If you are seeking purpose, want to lead with vision and contribute to new research insights and future innovations, CSIRO could be the opportunity to connect with other like minds, as a trusted advisor building shared meaning and purpose.
