The Opportunity

  • Use data modelling skills to design and link various frameworks & technologies
  • Provide analytical services & advice to business and government policy makers
  • Contribute to leading research making Australia ready for future climate challenges

At CSIRO, we solve the greatest challenges through innovative science and technology. We are Australia's national science agency and innovation catalyst, collaborating to boost Australia's innovation performance. We have partnered with the Bureau of Meteorology, Geoscience Australia, and the Australian Bureau of Statistics in creating the newly established Australian Climate Service (ACS) to address recommendations into National Natural Hazard Arrangements. The ACS will be the Commonwealth’s trusted provider of data, information and knowledge to support improved preparation for, response to and recovery from natural disasters, reducing risk and building resilience, in Australia. It brings together Australia’s leading climate and natural disaster information and expertise in a customer-led and mission-focussed national capability.

A number of newly created roles are available to support the delivery of the ACS complex portfolio of projects, and will be part of the CSIRO Land & Water (L&W) unit. Through an integrated systems research approach, CSIRO L&W provides the information and technologies required by government, industry and the Australian & international communities to protect, restore, and manage natural and built environments.

The Integration Modeller will play a key role in designing, developing and linking the various frameworks and modelling technologies of the ACS research portfolio to generate different integrated scenarios and place-based situational contexts to evaluate the performance of a range of combinations of investments, policies and mechanisms. They will work closely with the leadership team of the project portfolio to ensure the efficient integration and alignment of the various modelling approaches with the wider digital tools and platforms being developed.

Applications are invited across two job classification levels and the successful candidate will be appointed at the level commensurate with their skills and experience.

Your duties will include:

  • Applying expertise and knowledge of emerging climate, social, environmental & technological opportunities and challenges, along with the needs of relevant government agencies, business and community, to deliver to CSIRO’s ACS research portfolio.
  • Undertaking new research demonstrating a considerable degree of originality, creativity and innovation in solving problems and introducing new directions and approaches. 
  • Adding value to the substantial capabilities being built through the ACS and digital transformation projects and making these relevant to decision makers.
  • Providing advice to organisational or government policy makers and planners, and transferring knowledge to non-scientific audiences.
  • Communicating research approaches and results to clients and the scientific community through presentations and written reports, including the preparation of documents for publication in scientific journals and commercialisation applications. 
  • Leading and collaborating with staff to ensure that research is established and delivered in accordance with the research design and ethical and privacy requirements and to the satisfaction of clients.
  • Location: Canberra (preferred) or Melbourne (considered)
  • Salary: AU$117K to AU$157K + up to 15.4% superannuation
  • Tenure: Specified Term of 4 years
  • Reference: 80741

To be considered you will need:

  • A PhD, or equivalent relevant work experience, in applied, systems-based, qualitative and quantitative applications of integration modelling and analysis. 
  • Significant experience working in inter- or trans-disciplinary projects and comfort in working with a mixed public-private sector research team and a wide range of collaborative partners. 
  • Demonstrated experience and ability to work within and apply systems thinking or systems-based approaches to research & development and undertake collaborative qualitative systems mapping.
  • Proven knowledge and experience in using qualitative & quantitative data to inform applied place-based stakeholder research and/or policy and investment decisions of government or industry, incorporating stochastic analysis capabilities within new or existing modelling approaches.
  • Experience in engaging, convening and facilitating diverse sets of stakeholders such as communities, government, and business for co-design processes.
