At CSIRO, we solve the greatest challenges through innovative science and technology. We are Australia's national science agency and innovation catalyst, collaborating to boost Australia's innovation performance. We have partnered with the Bureau of Meteorology, Geoscience Australia, and the Australian Bureau of Statistics in creating the newly established Australian Climate Service (ACS) to address recommendations into National Natural Hazard Arrangements. The ACS will be the Commonwealth’s trusted provider of data, information and knowledge to support improved preparation for, response to and recovery from natural disasters, reducing risk and building resilience, in Australia. It brings together Australia’s leading climate and natural disaster information and expertise in a customer-led and mission-focussed national capability.
A number of newly created roles are available to support the delivery of the ACS complex portfolio of projects, and will be part of the CSIRO Land & Water (L&W) unit. Through an integrated systems research approach, CSIRO L&W provides the information and technologies required by government, industry and the Australian & international communities to protect, restore, and manage natural and built environments.
The Senior Quantitative Systems Economist will work collaboratively with biophysical, data and social scientists and a range of stakeholders in research, government and business, to develop conceptual frameworks & analytical methods to investigate and assess the wider economic impact that will arise as a result of resilience investment decisions, and build an understanding of how economic activity can be affected, transmit or mediate climate shocks across a range of areas and industry sectors.
Applications are invited across two job classification levels and the successful candidate will be appointed at the level commensurate with their skills and experience.
