CSIRO Australia offers PhD graduates an opportunity to work with leaders in the field of science and generous personal development and learning opportunities. Fellowships are available to PhD graduates who have attained, or will shortly satisfy the requirements for a PhD degree in a discipline related to CSIRO's research. Overseas applicants are eligible for appointment and will be sponsored by CSIRO to obtain an Australian Work Visa. Appointment is subject to immigration requirements and security assessments being met. The duration of a single term appointment as a designated Postdoctoral Fellow may not exceed three years full-time or equivalent, allowing for breaks or part-time pro-rata considerations. Consecutive appointments as a Postdoctoral Fellow may be offered, provided that on completion of the fellowship, the officer's total relevant work experience since confirmation of his/her doctorate does not exceed six full-time equivalent years. DEADLINE NOTE: Fellowships are advertised nationally and on CSIRO's website each year in May and October. Application deadlines vary by position. For more information, go to
