CSIRO's cotton research is improving the sustainability, productivity, fibre quality and distinctiveness of the Australian cotton crop through development of high-performing varieties, matching crop management strategies, improved post-harvest fibre processing technologies, and development of value-added co-products.

You will also participate in the experimental design, data capture and sample processing from field and glasshouse experiments. You will be required to work as an important team member as well as independently in the Breeding Support team to develop enhanced new varieties suitable for all cotton growing regions of Australia.

Whether you're looking to be actively involved in the science behind our CSIRO cotton research & build your agricultural knowledge, or to apply your practical skills & expertise to improve the farm operational activities of our programs, these roles would be great career opportunities for you, and we would love to hear from you!
