CSIRO Postdoctoral Fellowship in Fibre Based Distributed Sensing

Date: 02-Jun-2021

Location: Perth, WA, AU

Company: CSIRO

The Opportunity

 

  • Do you have a PhD (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD) in a relevant discipline area, such as observational/computational seismology and geophysics?
  • Contribute to the development of imaging and monitoring technologies of the subsurface across multiple scales
  • Join CSIRO – Australia’s leading scientific research organisation!

 

CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships aim to develop the next generation of future leaders of the innovation system.

 

CSIRO is currently seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to join the Deep Earth Imaging Future Science Platform.  The Postdoctoral Fellow will conduct innovative research to develop novel data processing algorithms and contribute to the fibre optic-based sensing theoretical foundations for the development of imaging and monitoring technologies of the subsurface across multiple scales.

Your duties will include:

  • Development of new cost-effective and sustainable 4D monitoring with datasets recorded at distributed acoustic sensing platforms for onshore and offshore domains relevant to subsurface monitoring i.e. microseismic monitoring, CCS plume monitoring with passive and active wavefields.
  • Contribute to the Deep Earth Imaging research team's effective functioning and help deliver to CSIRO’s organisational objectives, plans, and strategies. 
  • Carrying out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes.
  • Recording, managing, and analysing data/information using relevant domain data science techniques

 

Location: Perth, WA

Salary: AU$88k - AU$96k plus up to 15.4% superannuation

Tenure: Specified term of 3 years

Reference: 74368
