The Opportunity
  • Do you have an interest in machine learning and artificial intelligence?
  • Use your skills to reimagine complex processes to support decision-making
  • Join CSIRO’s Data61, the largest data innovation group in Australia

CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships aim to develop the next generation of future leaders of the innovation system.

In this position you will undertake research in the Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Future Science Platform (MLAI FSP). As the successful candidate you will reimagine complex and constrained bio-geo-physical processes with MLAI to support decision-making. You will focus on the advancement and development of artificial intelligence methods and tools to improve decision-making under uncertainty, interpretability and explainability, optimise, calibrate and improve efficiency of process model computation through the development of computationally efficient algorithms, leverage off different data and information sources and generalise methods to new applications.

Your duties will include:
  • Developing methods for optimal or robust sequential decision-making under uncertainty to solve pressing environmental and societal problems in health, conservation of biodiversity and biosecurity.
  • Implementing these methods efficiently using programming tools such as C/C++, R, Python, TensorFlow and PyTorch.
  • Carrying out evaluation of the developed software to demonstrate its competitiveness and fitness for purpose.
  • Carrying out high impact research of strategic importance to CSIRO, with the aim of achieving innovative and wide-reaching scientific outcomes and ideas for further research.

Location: Sydney NSW or Brisbane QLD Australia
Salary: AU$83k – AU$94k plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Tenure: Specified term of 3 years
Reference: 67571

To be considered you will need:
  • A doctorate (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD) in a Platform-relevant discipline area, such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, computer science, operation research, applied mathematics or applied physics.

Please note: To be eligible for this role you must have no more than 3 years (or part time equivalent) of postdoctoral research experience.

  • Solid knowledge of artificial intelligence, machine learning and optimisation, and the ability to understand and develop mathematically-founded planning and reinforcement learning algorithms.
  • High Level computational and programming skills (in Python, R, or C++) to build AI/ML models and conduct analyses.
  • Publications in top-tier conferences such as NeurIPS, ICML, AISTATS, ICLR, CVPR, ICCV, AAAI, IJCAI
