We employ a number of scientists and engineers to undertake research which is vitally important to Australia’s ongoing global competitiveness. In addition, there are many critical roles that provide the support structure underlying these research activities.
Opportunities to suit your skills
Our ongoing history of successful collaboration with industries, governments and communities worldwide provides our staff with opportunities in almost all areas of scientific research; from the molecules of life to the molecules in space.
We find ways to improve quality of life and economic performance. In between, we discover, invent, educate, challenge, develop, solve, question and answer. As a result, our career options are as varied as what we do. Employment activities fall into two main streams:
- Research scientists/engineers
- Research support services.
Each stream offers a different career path depending on your skills, career objectives and the sort of work you are looking for. Careers can often switch between the two streams.
We're one of Australia's largest employers of research scientists and engineers but we also require people with diverse skills in a broad range of areas. These may include technical assistants, tradespeople, financial and human resource managers, librarians, journalists, communicators, information technologists, legal officers and administrative staff.
