We’re hiring!

Be part of our exciting environmental resources hub that is informing sustainable development in northern Australia.

Within the School of Environment, the Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods (RIEL) is a Tier One research institute that consolidates CDU’s environmental research and postgraduate training across the natural, social and spatial sciences. RIEL also hosts the Centre for Renewable Energy, the Darwin Centre for Bushfire Research, and the Northern Australia Environmental Resources Hub of the National Environmental Science Program (NESP).

The Northern Australia Environmental Resources Hub assists decision makers to understand, use, manage and safeguard northern Australia’s outstanding natural environment through world-class science. Working in the Kimberley, Top End, the Gulf and Cape York, Hub research focuses on land and water planning, ecosystems and economics, Indigenous land management, and fire, weeds and feral animals.

As the Communications Officer, you will work with the Knowledge Brokering and Communications Team to help maximise the impact of Hub research through facilitating its uptake by government representatives, industry bodies, Indigenous organisations, community groups and others. Your focus will be to assist with communications, office management and co-ordination to ensure that activities are targeted, effective and integrated, and build on existing research and knowledge in a meaningful way.

To be successful, you require a tertiary qualification in science communication or related field or equivalent relevant experience, as well as demonstrated high level communication skills including experience in developing effective products to communicate research to a wide range of audiences.
