At the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), we shape the future. We do this by using science to solve real issues. Our research makes a difference to people, industry and the planet.
For around a century we have been pushing the boundaries of what is possible in science and technology. Our world-renowned successes include WiFi, the Hendra vaccine and polymer banknotes. But it’s tomorrow’s innovations that excite us – wearable technology that alerts a doctor when you are sick, diets based on your DNA and so much more.
With more than 5,000 experts based in 55 centres, extensive local and international networks, and a burning desire to get things done, we are Australia’s catalyst for innovation and a global force in transforming imagination into reality.
The quality of our research underpins our ability to innovate. Our research is trusted; our discoveries are published in world-leading journals and globally, we are in the top one per cent in 15 of 22 research fields.
Everything we do is focused on creating measurable economic, environmental and social benefits that better our world and Australia’s place in it.
CSIRO. We imagine. We collaborate. We innovate.
Our graduate program
CSIRO Scholarships are our way of recognising and rewarding the academic excellence of students from high school (for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples) and undergraduates through to doctoral studies.
Our Postdoctoral Fellowships offer PhD graduates the opportunity to launch their scientific careers.
Undergraduate vacation scholarships
Our Undergraduate Vacation Scholarships offer students the opportunity of collaborating with our scientists.
Postgraduate students who partner with CSIRO to complete their PhD studies will gain access to world-class facilities and have a unique opportunity to work alongside Australia’s leading research scientists.
We're committed to the development of the next generation of scientists and engineers. Our postdoctoral fellowships provide PhD graduates with experience working alongside leaders in science and engineering, as well as generous personal development and learning opportunities.
