CSIRO’s Data61 is at the forefront of digital science and innovation. Data61 is guiding first class novel research as well as working across disciplines and sectors to apply technologies and deliver impact.
Our Science Digital initiative is a rare opportunity to be a part of remaking the process of scientific discovery by enhancing research, development and commercialisation with artificial intelligence.
From the formation of a hypothesis to the design and running of an experiment, AI can both accelerate and alter the process of inquiry.
Data61 is  mastering the research and application of Artificial Intelligence capability across Australia to grow our economy, solve problems and improve our quality of life. You will be joining us at an exciting time where we have recently partnered with the Australian Government to establish a National AI Centre and formulate AI Ethical frameworks and foundations. As part of this journey, you will significantly contribute to the development of innovative ideas, empirical studies, collaborative projects, methods, and technologies in software engineering for AI-based systems including Responsible AI.
We are committed to continuously building a diverse, inclusive and flexible working environment where all our people are supported to do their best work and feel empowered to let their ideas flourish.
We expect the Science Digital CERC Fellows to learn and grow to become agile researchers by the end of this project. We will embed the Science Digital CERC Fellows into the Data61 Science Digital ecosystem, where they will have a supporting and enriching experience.
We’re interested in hearing from people who can demonstrate the following:
Research experience in one of more of the following software engineering sub-fields:
