The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences is globally recognised for the impact of its research, teaching and contribution to Community. The School is one of the most research active academic units in Australia for Earth, Environmental and Archaeological Sciences. The School hosts the ARC Centre of Excellence for Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH) integrating research into early humans in Australasia with climate and landscape change.

We provide technical support to approximately 50 new registered spatial projects from across the University each year - approximately three quarters of these are student research projects (Masters, Honours and PhDs) within the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences. Projects are also supported from other units across the University. The Spatial Analysis Laboratory (SAL) hosts a suite of computers that run a range of software products for processing and analysing spatial data, such as ESRI’s ArcGIS and the ENVI image-processing package, as well as providing spatial data and analytical support.

The role involves providing technical support in the SAL for research projects using spatial tools, technologies and data sets (GIS, GPS, remote sensing), as well as undertaking the day-to-day data management operations of the SAL.
