Indigenous STEM Education Research Assistant @ CSIRO

The Indigenous STEM Education Project supports pathways that improve the participation and achievement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in STEM (Science, Technology, Education, Mathematics) subjects and consists of six program elements: Inquiry for Indigenous Science Students (I2S2), PRIME Futures, Science Pathways, ASSETS, Indigenous STEM Awards, and Bachelor of Science (Extended). While all programs have internal program monitoring processes, the project also conducts an evaluation of the program elements and the project as a whole, which is  consistent with the project’s Monitoring and Evaluation Framework.

As a Research Assistant in this project, you will work under the supervision of the Research Coordinator and closely with Program Leaders.  You will be responsible for key tasks related to the implementation of the evaluation’s mixed methods research approach. This mixed methods approach aims to triangulate data from multiple sources including surveys, case studies, program monitoring data, and jurisdictional data.  You will be required to contribute to the development and implementation of research methods and tools, write ethics and jurisdictional applications, and undertake data analysis, report writing and publication.  This role will involve local and interstate travel, as required.

Optimisation Researcher @ CSIRO Data61, Canberra

At the Optimisation research group of Data61, we use a combination of methods from Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence to solve a variety of discrete optimisation problems, but we tend to specialise in problems from the transport area. We are looking for a Research Scientist to join a small team, to develop methods and write code that will be used to solve these real problems.

You as the successful applicant will perform research as directed in an area of interest to the Optimisation Platforms and Applications team. The methods employed often make use of meta-heuristic local search including Large Neighbourhood Search, Variable Neighbourhood Search and Genetic algorithms. When appropriate we use Linear Programming, Integer Linear Programming techniques and Constraint Programming techniques and tools.
