The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Traineeship Program is an initiative of the CSIRO Indigenous Engagement Strategy which seeks to significantly increase Indigenous employment nationally within CSIRO. Through this strategy, CSIRO aims to enhance the educational, employment, training and career development opportunities for people of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent.
An opportunity exists for a trainee to join CSIRO Manufacturing to undertake a workplace-based traineeship. There is a position currently available in the Biophysics group:
The x-ray diffraction (XRD) laboratory provides both specialist and routine phase analysis support to research projects undertaken within CSIRO and external clients. The successful applicant will join the x-ray science team and under training and guidance from the XRD analyst, will acquire and develop skills and gain experience in all key aspects of the technique.
The microscopy facility provides both specialist and routine image and structural analysis support to research projects undertaken within CSIRO and external clients. Techniques include electron (SEM) and optical (OM) microscopy from macro to nano scale for surface imaging and texture analysis as well as semi-quantitative elemental composition.
Over the course of the traineeship, the successful applicant will undertake on-the-job training and complete a Nationally Accredited Qualification relative to their position. Upon successful completion of the training package the trainee will be considered for ongoing employment with CSIRO, if available.
