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. TAS13/01375 - PRINCIPAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST / SENIOR PRINCIPAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN COMPUTATION INTELLIGENCE 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 . TAS13/01376 - PRINCIPAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST / SENIOR PRINCIPAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN COGNITIVE ENGINEERING 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.
