- DSTG offers job security in applied research positions that contribute to national security
- Apply your skills to solve complex problems that underpin Navy capability decisions
- Conduct research in a collaborative and innovative environment
Contribute to studies and research into complex problem solving, modelling and simulation, wargaming and data analysis to enhance Navy’s future capability.
The Maritime Capability Analysis (MCA) Branch in Sydney is looking for enthusiastic Maritime Analysts and Developers. Come and join the team that addresses difficult questions about how Australia’s warships should be made ready to go to sea, deploy to where they are needed, and fight to win. As the ideal candidate, your passion to make Australia’s Navy more capable will be matched by your ability to think critically about problems and provide insights using problem solving and operations research skills. When Navy is calling for urgent answers you will be integral to the teams that deliver them, and you will also perform research into issues that no-one else is even thinking about yet.
Three positions are available:
Maritime Modelling and Simulation Analyst
Apply modelling, simulation or analysis approaches to solve maritime problems. Research new analysis methodologies, modelling and simulation tools and techniques appropriate to maritime capability. Develop and maintain an understanding of emerging applications, knowledge and techniques applicable to the operations research discipline.
Maritime Operations Data Analyst
Apply operations research skills including data science / analytics and mathematical modelling to solve maritime problems. Research new analysis methodologies, data analytic techniques and mathematical modelling appropriate to maritime capability. Develop and maintain an understanding of emerging applications, knowledge and techniques applicable to the operations research discipline.
Maritime Simulation and Wargaming Systems Developer
Apply computing, simulation and wargaming approaches to studies that inform the Navy’s future. Exploit state of the art DST private cloud and HPC infrastructure, apply GPU computing, work with Data Scientists and implement machine learning algorithms.
Your background in Mathematics, Physics or Computer Sciences will equip you to improve how warships operate today; your desire to innovate will drive you to imagine ways that they could operate in the future. Your excellent verbal and written communication skills will enable you to collaborate with Navy personnel, academia and industry with clarity and influence.
