PhD Scholarship at CSIRO & Monash

Location: CSIRO, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Closing Date: 31 October 2023
Duration: 3 years
Scholarship Title: Development of physics-constrained reduced order modelling of thermally driven flows

Monash University in conjunction with the CSIRO has an exciting opportunity for a PhD candidate to undertake research on the development of physics-constrained reduced order modelling of thermally driven flows. This fundamental research would enable the rapid computation, sensitivity analysis and robust design in many applications including: energy generation systems; heating, ventilation and cooling; and climate change response under varying levels of future greenhouse gas forcing.

Candidates must have:

  • an outstanding knowledge of mathematics and/or theory of fluid mechanics;
  • programming experience (e.g. python, Julia, C/C++, F90);
  • experience in numerical simulations and/or machine learning.

The successful candidate will be eligible for a top-up scholarship up to $10,000 per year.
Closing date for Australian permanent residents and citizens and NZ citizens is: 31st October 2023.

FairML Postdoc opportunity at CSIRO

Location: CSIRO’s Data61
Closing Date: 31 August 2023
Duration: 3 years

Machine Learning (ML) is increasingly used to inform high-stake, human-centric decisions including credit scoring and sentencing in the judiciary system. But ML algorithms are well-known to exhibit biases disadvantaging people from certain ethnicities and genders. Fairness research has contributed more equitable algorithms and has increased our understanding on different bias sources. However, an understanding of how these bias sources combine to forge the overall bias is still lacking. This project aims to disentangle ML-bias into algorithmic and data bias focussing on intersectional subgroups. The techniques developed can then be used to analyse biases in threatened species management and human–machine collaboration.
