The Indigenous Cadetship Program is an initiative of the CSIRO Indigenous Engagement Strategy which seeks to significantly increase Indigenous employment nationally within CSIRO. Through this strategy, CSIRO aims to enhance the educational, employment, training and career development opportunities for people of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent.

Indigenous Cadetships may be offered to people of Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent who are enrolled for full-time study in their first undergraduate degree course at an Australian university. Upon successful completion of the Cadetship, Cadets will be encouraged to apply for positions in CSIRO relevant to their qualification and skills.

Our cadetships offer a combination of full time study and work placements within CSIRO (usually completed during the long break at the end of each academic year) and provide:

  • A study allowance of $300 per week during periods of full-time study (40 weeks)
  • Financial assistance of $500 per semester to assist with study costs
  • 12 weeks of paid work placement during each year of the cadetship
  • Payment of HECS fees by CSIRO on successful completion of study.

An opportunity exists for a cadet to join CSIRO Data61. In this role you will work with research scientists and engineers to develop innovative solutions to enhance Data61’s current projects. This work may involve a combination of laboratory and office related activities as the cadet could be responsible for initiating laboratory and field experiments, data collection, analysis and correlating results to established models under the guidance of an experienced researcher. This work could also involve data entry, data management, statistical analysis, literature searches and the production of reports and other publications. The cadet will uphold high standards of HSE and equipment care necessary for this role.
