This position represents an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated scientist to join the Ecosystem Change Ecology team based in Perth, Western Australia. This multidisciplinary team generates knowledge on the mechanistic links and synergistic interactions between landscape change, species invasions and native species decline in terrestrial ecosystems. Working in both agricultural and natural systems, we undertake research and develop theory to underpin more effective policy and management actions for conservation, invasion and production challenges in the face of rapid global change.
Our location provides an exceptional opportunity to work on highly endemic and unique ecosystems across temperate and tropical climates, including the National Heritage-listed Kimberley region, and the Southwest Australia Ecoregion, one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. The team delivers to both Land & Water and Health & Biosecurity in CSIRO, has strong links with the University of Western Australia via collaborative research and student supervision, and undertakes research with a network of collaborators and on behalf of clients both in Australia and overseas.
The role of a Research Scientist in CSIRO is to conduct innovative research leading to scientific achievements that are aligned with CSIRO’s strategies. You may be engaged in scientific activity ranging from fundamental research to the investigation of specific industry or community problems. You will have the opportunity to build and maintain networks, play a lead role in securing project funds, provide scientific leadership and pursue new ideas and approaches that create new concepts.
