Dear CSIRO Alumni members

I’m Professor Bronwyn Fox, CSIRO’s Chief Scientist. I want to tell you about some exciting new opportunities at CSIRO, particularly for early to mid-career researchers. If this is you, or if you know someone early in their career who would be interested in working at the national science agency, please read on.

We have launched a new recruitment campaign – ‘Impossible without you’ – aimed at finding Australia’s next generation of inventors, innovators and change makers, and attracting them to CSIRO. We are looking for people from all disciplines – from digital to engineering, biology, physics, or chemistry and more – to join us to help solve seemingly impossible challenges for Australia.

Recruitment is taking place in waves between now and the end of the year and will include roles in a range of areas from across our portfolio. You’ll notice that the roles are broad – we’re looking for your expression of interest in our research priorities, and what you could contribute to help us accelerate our work.

You can find out more about the program and the opportunities available here, and follow us on LinkedIn for updates.

CSIRO is a great place to launch your career, and it’s a great place to return to as well. I began my career at CSIRO as an early career researcher in the 1990s, and 30 years later I’ve returned as Chief Scientist. It’s been a terrific experience that has continued to inspire me.

If you are an early or mid-career researcher alumnus and interested in returning to CSIRO, I encourage you to submit an expression of interest.

Alternatively, help us spread the word by sharing available roles with your network. This campaign has been and will continue to be a true #TeamCSIRO effort, and I sincerely thank you for your support.
