Many of CSIRO's innovations were once considered impossible.

Fast WiFi, Aerogard insect repellent and the plastic Australian banknote, to name a few.

Until someone, just like you, joined us and took on the challenge.

Join Team CSIRO and help make the impossible possible.

CSIRO Missions

Focusing on the issues that matter the most

From ending plastic waste and growing our protein industries to building Australia’s hydrogen industry and protecting regional towns from drought, this is your opportunity to make an impact.

We’re recruiting the next generation of inventors, innovators, researchers and change makers for our three-year program. You’ll be working as part of our Missions to help solve Australia’s greatest challenges. 

Your design thinking and desire to generate impact will drive creativity, innovation and evolve our approach to unlocking a better future for everyone.  

CSIRO's Missions are a rare opportunity for early career researchers in science and engineering to collaborate across disciplines, sectors and systems to solve impossible problems.

We're currently recruiting for five of our Missions, with more opportunities coming soon.
