Work at the leading edge of the worldwide electricity system transformation
With world leading uptake of renewable energy, Australia is tackling some of the world’s most complex electrical system integration projects.
Join the challenge with CSIRO – Australia’s National Science Agency – where you will:
- Work in the team at the center of Australia’s electricity system transformation
- Develop and apply cutting edge solutions to solve real-world problems and deploy these in real grids servicing millions of people
- Collaborate internationally while solving the challenges Australia’s power system is facing – years before most other countries.
- Take your research to commercial success, with the opportunity for startups, spinouts or deployment with major industrial partners.
CSIRO’s work delivers the data and analysis that underpins energy policy and implementation in Australia.
Want to help drive the renewable energy revolution? Join the team!
Australia’s electricity system is leading the world in its transition to a decentralised, low-inertia power grid, with some parts already over 50% renewable energy penetration. Australia is facing system management, operations and modelling challenges before most other countries in the world.
Given these challenges, CSIRO has a range of power system research positions open, working on applied research activities in electrical power systems and energy network modelling and control. These roles will work with a range of partners to take the latest optimisation, simulation and analytical techniques to solve the transition challenges in Australia’s electricity system. You will have the opportunity to build and maintain international networks of research collaborators, deploy your research in to real-world operating systems, and develop new science guiding the world’s energy transition.
