- Bring your biogeochemistry expertise into a varied role managing the Australian BGC Argo floats
- Work with Argo robotic floats that are helping us in better understanding our oceans
- Exciting ongoing role with CSIRO – Australia’s National Science Agency!
CSIRO provides large-scale multidisciplinary science to inform the use of Australia's marine environment, and is a leading organisation in developing tools for decision making in coastal regions and providing scientific support to authorities and industries responsible for the sustainable management and use of Australian and international oceans & fisheries. Through our innovative research, state-of-the-start facilities, and trusted national & international collaborations, we continuously strive to deliver science with real impact!
In this position as the Biogeochemical Oceanographer, you will be joining our dynamic ‘Southern Ocean’ research team, and will have a primary focus of managing the Biogeochemical (BGC) Argo floats as part of our major ‘Argo’ project. The IMOS Biogeochemical Argo sub-facility deploys BGC Argo floats in scientifically important areas of Australia’s Exclusive Economic Zone, surrounding seas and the Southern Ocean. Bringing your domain expertise and project management skills into the role, you will be the IMOS BGC-Argo leader for CSIRO, ensuring that the Australian BGC Argo remains at the state-of-the-art standard, and gets opportunities to deploy floats in key scientific experiments. You will effectively manage the project deliverables and quality assurance procedures, as well as interact with the wider Argo project to plan the floats deployments, and develop opportunities to deploy the BGC Argo floats. Although the BGC-Argo program would be the key focus of this role, you will still have the opportunity to collaborate and participate in other related projects to develop your skills and experience in the field.
If you have a passion in contributing to monitoring our oceans with robotic floats, and an interest in being a key player in a critical research project, this will be an exciting opportunity for you!
