John Whittle: Data61 is the digital technologies and data sciences arm of CSIRO, Australia’s National Science Agency. We’re actually in a growth phase and we’re opening up a significant number of new scientist and engineer roles and it would be great if you would consider joining us.

Toby Walsh: Why should you apply for a role at Data61?
[Images move through of a close view of a quadruped, the legs of the quadruped, the top of the quadruped, and a person holding a handle on the top of the quadruped and guiding it]
If you’re interested in anything digital, and I have to say that the world is becoming increasingly digital and the exciting opportunities in our world are increasingly connected with digital, then Data61 is undoubtedly the best place in Australia, one of the best places actually in the world to go and explore all digital.

Sherry Xu: I did my PhD with Data61 and I continued working with my PhD supervisor after I graduated.

Compared with universities, I think Data61 is more impact oriented and that we are applying our research in igniting a research field, data of AI or machine learning, and blockchain.

Sally Cripps: It’s unique in Australia in the sense that it brings together all aspects of data science and artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Jeremy Howard: I really hope that people will consider applying for a role at Data61 because it separates those who work with some of the best people in Australia, and you’ll find that when you’re working with the best people you’re doing your best work as well.

And it could be an opportunity to get a really great combination of both deep interesting technical work at a research level, but also all the really interesting details you have to get right to apply that work to actual practical problems.

Sherry Xu: Data61 is also family friendly, seeking to accommodate the demands of people having different family, and the personal commitments in their lives.

Jeremy Howard: It’s about doing breakthrough work, but not generally just for its own sake. It’s about doing breakthrough work in a way that can be applied to actually solving a list of problems.

Sally Cripps: And it is that whole approach to, right from the inception of the new mathematics through to the new algorithmic development, all the way through to actually delivering it as an app that can exist on somebody’s phone. All of that happens within Data61 and I think that that makes Data61 unique in Australia, and probably pretty unique in the world.

Jon Whittle: I’ve worked in lots of different places in my career. I’ve worked in government research agencies. I’ve worked with industry, and I’ve worked in universities, but I came to CSIRO’s Data61 because I think that it’s unique in its ability to have that national impact. We don’t stop doing research once we’ve published papers. We don’t stop until we put real solutions into the hands of real people. And that’s why I came to CSIRO.
