CSIRO Mineral Resources (CMR) is one of the largest minerals research and development groups globally, with a proud track record in delivering innovation and solutions across the mineral resources value chain. We thrive on innovation harnessed by the diversity of the minds and lived experiences of our team and apply our expert knowledge and specialised research to provide innovation that solves the complex problems faced by minerals companies, mining equipment, technology, and services (METS) companies, government, and other industry stakeholders.
As a Spectral Scientist, you will have a strong understanding of spectral sensing geoscience data and experience in interpreting a range of data sets including potential field data, remote sensing data and field/laboratory observations and measurements to facilitate geological and mineral mapping.
