- Do you have a PhD in electronic engineering, communications engineering or computer science?
- Concentrate on the modelling, simulation, and low level implementation of underwater wireless mesh networks
- Join a team of highly skilled multidisciplinary engineers and technicians for this exciting postdoctoral role
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.
The CERC Fellow will work on a project within The Autonomous Sensors Future Science Platform. CSIRO’s Future Science Platforms (FSPs) represent an investment in science that underpins innovation and has the potential to help reinvent and create new industries for Australia. The Autonomous Sensors FSP will accelerate the generation of new tools to enable growth of digital decision making within domains; combining fundamental sensor research with autonomous engineering solutions to provide new advanced sensing and platform technologies for the environmental monitoring, health monitoring, mining, agriculture, and manufacturing domains.
The position will sit within the Engineering & Technology (E&T) program of CSIRO National Collections and Marine Infrastructure (NCMI), centred on the Autonomous Sensors Future Science Platform. Performing sustained marine observations presents a significant challenge due to the harsh and remote nature of the environment. E&T delivers bespoke systems and equipment to further science within the field and this role aims to strengthen the use of autonomous marine systems within CSIRO and globally. This will allow CSIRO to remain at the forefront of effective and efficient surveying, exploration, management, and intervention of the marine environment, important for understanding and preventing threats posed to Australia’s ecology and biodiversity.
A candidate with high level of self-motivation is sought to work as part of a team of highly skilled multidisciplinary engineers and technicians to progress underwater mesh networks for autonomous and underwater IoT based marine observations into the future. The successful applicant will play a leading role in developing novel methods for communication between autonomous nodes in the marine environment, as well as having the opportunity to observe and evaluate performance in the field.
