Research Jobs in Australia

researchThe role of the Research and Development (R&D) manager is to determine, implement and monitor R&D strategies and plans to support commercial and policy developments. They are often required to assess business operations, deliver reports and opinions to management and perhaps publish R&D findings.

R&D managers are well qualified, 100% have tertiary qualifications, predominantly a bachelor or higher degree. Wages are commensurate with qualifications: the average weekly wage is $1668, that is $86,736 annually. The gender break up of R&D managers is 70:30 in favor of men, and within the sector the vast majority (almost nine in ten) work full-time.

In the research industry, the average age is 45 years, more than half are aged over 45 (in contrast with national average of 35.2%), but from the years 2006 to 2011, employment levels of R&D managers plummeted by 21.5% to a nationwide tally of 7600 which is in sharp contrast to the average growth across all occupations of 10.2% during that same period.

During each of the years to 2017, employment is tipped to fall 1.7%. And in other statistics –derived from research, of course! – around 8.2% of R&D managers leave the occupation each year. This is lower than the national average of 14.2%.

Research Provides New Hope for South Australia Forestry

In the past several weeks, much publicity has been given to the forestry industry, specifically in South Australia. In the beginning, it did not look like the press was given for any positive reasons. Even though the forestry minister in South Australia has been looking at the possibility of potential job cuts in the forestry industry, there is also hope that workers in research assistant jobs will be able to turn the tide. This would lead to a more stabilised workforce in the forestry regions of South Australia.
