We're Australia's national science agency.
- Are you an engineer with a background in electronic/electrical design?
- Can you undertake lab and field tests of mining measurement systems?
- Join CSIRO Mineral Resources today and help us make a difference!
The Sensing and Sorting Program of CSIRO Minerals seeks to appoint a motivated Project Officer in its Radio Frequency (RF) and Digital Systems Team. The successful applicant will have a degree in electronic or electrical engineering or equivalent industrial experience and will support development of novel RF based online instruments to solve a range of challenging, real world problems. All members of the team are encouraged to develop a range of skills in electronics and software, instrument design, construction and field-testing of prototype industrial systems. The successful applicant will work closely with scientists and other electronics technical staff developing RF based hardware underpinning magnetic resonance and other RF technology.
The position would ideally suit an engineer with demonstrated electronic and electrical design capability that extends to fabricating and testing prototypes. Experience in the operation or design of RF technology and software skills would be an advantage. The role of Research Projects staff in CSIRO is to collaborate in scientific activities with other research staff by assisting with detailed planning, undertaking or assisting with experimental and observational work, and in carrying out other practical aspects of the work.
Your duties will include:
- Undertaking the design, implementation and validation of relevant electronic and electrical hardware systems.
- Undertaking laboratory testing and field trials of electrical equipment in various environments, including at mine sites.
- Understanding software engineering and communication protocols of prototype systems
- Communicating effectively and respectfully with all staff, clients and suppliers in the interests of good business practice, collaboration and enhancement of CSIRO’s reputation.
- Working as part of a multi-disciplinary applied research team, to carry out tasks under limited direction in support of scientific research.
To be considered you will need:
- A degree in electrical and/or electronics engineering or equivalent with minimum of 2 years postgraduate experience
- Demonstrated ability to design electrical and electronic circuits
- Ability to develop laboratory prototypes through to prototype production
- A practical, hands-on approach to solving engineering problems
- Electronic design automation (EDA) and design process documentation skills
- Familiarity with using modern sensors and devices, e.g., laser, vision, inertial, radar, robotics.
