  • Are you an up-and-coming scientist with a flair for innovation?
  • An outstanding opportunity to launch your research career. Join CSIRO's
  • Environomics Future Science Platform (FSP) and be part of the next scientific revolution.

The Environomics Future Science Platform (Environomics FSP) is pleased to announce the opening of its first round of Future Science Fellowships focused on the development of environmental genomic technologies.

We are seeking to recruit outstanding and inventive early career scientists who will develop the environmental genomics technologies of the future. Two categories of Future Science Fellowship are offered:

  1. Fellowships embedded within existing Environomics Future Science Platform projects (3 fellowships);
  2. Open-call fellowships where you can propose a line of research that you would like to pursue and that meets the brief of "re-defining the limits of what genomics can do for environmental science and management" (1-2 fellowships).

Postdoctoral Fellows in Environomics are appointed for three years at various CSIRO locations within Australia.  You will be mentored by a CSIRO Research Scientist or Engineer and participate collaboratively within the Environomics FSP research program. We strongly encourage collaboration with university, government, and industry partners. The fellowships include research costs.

Available opportunities include:

FSP Postdoctoral Fellowship in Molecular Systematics and Taxonomy (ref 55763)
Mobile DNA Sequencing: Genome-power in your pocket

FSP Postdoctoral Fellowship in Ecology and Evolution (ref. 54642)
Using insects as molecular biosensors of biodiversity and ecological interactions.

FSP Postdoctoral Fellowship in Future Environmental DNA (ref. 54801)
eCells: developing novel ways to non-invasively estimate animal abundance through genomics.
