The GNSS Precise Orbit Determination (POD) Scientist role is located in Canberra and hosted by Geoscience Australia, employed on a 22-month contract through the CRCSI.

The research project will address solar radiation pressure (SRP) and attitude regime modelling of the BeiDou (BDS) satellite constellations with the goal of producing BDS products that support users across Australia to determine their positions anytime, anywhere and with the highest precision and integrity possible. The research will contribute to Australia’s National Positioning Infrastructure (NPI).

Core responsibiliites of this role includes:

  • Evaluate existing conservative force modelling approaches and how these might be applied and tuned to the BDS constellations. In particular, emphasis will be given to analytical solar radiation pressure (SRP) models
  • Investigate the current attitude regime that governs BDS satellite dynamics
  • Evaluate the performance of GNSS networks tracking the BDS satellites and their ability to determine a series of parameters that will improve the precise orbit determination by reconstructing the accelerations due to SRP
  • Implement and verify the BDS Interface Control Document standards 
  • Demonstrate teamwork, coordination and technology transfer by providing technical expertise and advice within the project
  • Perform research and publish in international peer-reviewed journals.

There are opportunities for graduates with spatial Information education across Australia and around the globe in many disciplines. 

Jobs in the spatial industry are varied with graduates working throughout business and government in a broad range of spatial information management and system development positions.

You may be involved in the traditional areas of managing land information systems, producing maps and digital databases, surveying boundaries and engineering projects, or managing, developing, and preserving land. You may be applying many techniques, including photogrammetry, remote sensing, and global positioning system (GPS). You could be managing information about the environment, transportation and other utility systems.

Working in our industry may see you advance the technology itself: developing software and systems to enhance the ability of individuals, business, government, and industry to better use information systems in daily business workflows.
