CSIRO Intelligent Sensing and Systems Laboratory (ISSL) positions, TASMANIA

The CSIRO Intelligent Sensing and Systems Laboratory (ISSL) is
developing innovative systems to support decision making through its
world-class ICT research capability in environmental sensor networks,
mobile sensor integration, computational intelligence and semantic and
knowledge engineering. Our projects have a strong focus on intelligent
eScience systems in informatics fields such as environment and
agriculture, psychophysiologyand human factors and molecular sciences.

We are seeking two Principal Research Scientists / SeniorPrincipal
Research Scientists to join our innovative team at our CSIRO ICT
Centre located in Tasmania. Note that a Principle Research Scientist
(CSOF 7) is equivalent to a European or Australian Associate
Professor, while a Senior Principle Research Scientist (CSOF 8) is
equivalent to a full professor.

Salary: 3-6K for CSOF7; 7K-8K for CSOF8 (plus up to 15.4%
superannuation) Tenure: Indefinite (full-time on-going)

To be appointed at the higher level you will need to demonstrate
extensive relevant scientific and/or industrial experience, together
with high level management and leadership capability and experience.


Your role will beto lead a Computational Intelligence research team
and lead/participate in research projects, and significantly
contribute to shaping and defining the research direction of the
science area within the ICT Centre. The projects have a strong focus
on intelligent eScience systems in informatics fields such as
environment and agriculture, psycho-physiology and human factors and
molecular sciences. Overall, you will have the responsibility to shape
and drive the research agenda of the Intelligent Sensing and
SystemsLaboratory (ISSL) of the CSIRO ICT Centre in Tasmania in the
field of computational intelligence, to develop and sustain the
internationalrecognition of CSIRO in this area .


Cognitive engineering includes the use of theories and methods from
cognitive science to inform engineering practice, and the use of
engineering theories, methods and techniques to investigate,
understand and augment human cognition. Cognitive engineering includes
user-centred design of human-machine interaction, the design of
information technology based upon human cognitive capacities and
functionality, human factors, and knowledge elicitation, modelling and
representation. Cognitive engineering within the ISSL includes the use
and development of empirical methods including psychophysiology and
eye tracking.

The Principal Research Scientist/Senior Principal Research Scientist
in cognitive engineering will provide research leadership for a
research team and lead/participate inresearch projects, significantly
contribute to shaping and defining the research direction of the
science area within the ICT Centre. Funding for the projects is
available and the projects are in their formative phases.

As Principal ResearchScientist/Senior Principal Research Scientist you
are also expected to work with external customers and partners, and to
work with business development and research management colleagues and
team members to establish collaborative work and define new externally
funded projects in the longer term.
