The role of Research Scientist staff is to conduct innovative research leading to scientific achievements that are aligned with CSIRO’s strategies. The Research Scientist may be engaged in scientific activity ranging from fundamental research to the investigation of specific industry or community problems.

CSIRO Agriculture seek an experienced Farming Systems Agronomist to join the Adelaide-based group.  The position will involve on-farm agronomic experimentation in southern Australia to investigate the impacts of a range of innovative crop management strategies to improve productivity and input-use efficiency.

A key requirement in this newly created role will be to develop and apply digital agriculture principles within the portfolio of relevant CSIRO activities at both experimental and farm-scales.  Emerging technologies in soil and crop sensing, and farming systems simulation will be linked to industry needs, along with developments in digital platforms that are now being widely promoted for industry application.

You will be a senior scientist and future leader who will drive new collaborative opportunities both within CSIRO and with external collaborators and investors.  The position offers a unique opportunity to develop a national profile and reputation and to become a future leader of R&D in the area of modern, digitally enabled farming systems agronomy.
