CSIRO, one of Australia’s premier applied science research organisations, is seeking a replacement for the role of Group Executive Food, Health and Life Science Industries.

The successful applicant will be required to have an international reputation in relevant areas of research, and the ability to work effectively at a senior leadership level. The Group Executive will also require the ability to manage productive relationships with research, commercial, government and community stakeholders nationally and internationally.
