- Are you ready for your next challenge?
- Take a leading role in enabling the success of Concentrated Solar Technology
- Join CSIRO and support Australia's premier scientific organisation!
The Australian Solar Thermal Research Institute (ASTRI) is a consortium of leading Australian research institutions, which was established to provide a coordinated, national approach to the development and demonstration of solar thermal technologies. The focus of ASTRI’s activities is on high temperature Concentrated Solar Thermal (CST) systems for energy storage, power generation and process heat.
The ASTRI Director will be responsible for delivering the commercial viability of Concentrated Solar Technology (CST) through the development, demonstration and deployment of emerging CST technologies, with a focus on areas where Australia has a comparative advantage. The successful candidate will also be responsible for leading and managing ASTRI’s world class capability in CST and actively managing key relationships with ASTRI partners, Government, Industry, international stakeholders and other Research institutions to ensure ASTRI outcomes are achieved in the national interest. You will have a strong focus on external engagement with government, industry, ASTRI partners and other research institutions, and will be required to foster linkages internally and externally with key stakeholders.
