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.

This Postdoctoral fellowship will develop novel soil proximal sensing tools to inform natural capital accounting frameworks. The fellow will be a broad systems thinker and have a strong interest in using spatial approaches to solve challenges in measuring and valuing Australia’s soil resources. Digital mapping tools will be used to model relationships between soil condition, function, and agricultural productivity. Joining the Soil & Landscapes Group Canberra, the fellow will have access to field deployable proximal tools (e.g. vis-NIR, pXRF), high-performance computing, and a tailored career development program. Collaborating across a multi-disciplinary research team, including experts in natural capital accounting and life cycle assessment, and engaging with the agricultural sector, the fellows research will drive a step-change in the way soil information is used to inform the sustainable management of Australia’s soil resources.

Your duties will include:

  • Carrying out research investigations requiring originality, creativity and innovation.
  • Working effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary, often regionally dispersed research team, to undertake independent scientific investigations and carrying out associated tasks under broad guidance from other Research Scientists.
  • Conceptualising and testing a novel framework to integrate soil spatial information into tools and metrics to support natural capital accounting, taking account of current international literature and expert opinion.

Location: Black Mountain, Canberra, ACT
Salary: AU$86k - AU$94k plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Tenure: Specified term of 3 years
Reference: 71181

To be considered you will need:

  • A doctorate (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD) in a relevant discipline area, such as Pedometrics, soil function assessment, soil spatial and temporal analysis, or ago-ecosystems modelling.
  • Demonstrated knowledge and skills in designing and implementing field-based research aimed at quantifying or modelling the state and function of soils across spatially variable landscapes.
  • Demonstrated hands-on experience in predicting soil properties using remote or proximal tools, and the laboratory and data requirements for calibration and validation.
