As the Reef Restoration Adaptation & Restoration program (RRAP) interventions progress there is a growing need to progress some of these interventions into the operational phase.

The newly established Translation to Deployment Sub-Program has oversight of this transition and translation. A key component of this translation is the participation of non-research providers, including existing industry organisations such as tourism operators, marine contractors, potential new industry organisations, and NGO and community organisations. This participation will be underpinned by a set of commercial delivery arrangements, some of which are likely to be complicated and involve relationships with IP sharing arrangements.

These activities are critical as they will set up future revenue arrangements for AIMS as the reef adaptation/restoration activities increase using methods developed in RRAP.

Working as part of the newly established Translation to Deployment Sub-Program your role will lead the development of commercial arrangements with key participants for Pilot Developments scheduled in late 2025 and upcoming large field trials, and work to understand and manage the risks to AIMS as part of these external engagements.

Applications Close: Sunday 11th December 2022

RRAP has contracted a set of large field trials across a range of disciplines and RRAP partners. These field trials are a critical and highly visible component of RRAP and larger co-ordination of this set of trials is required as a result of new complex interlocking permits and external providers now participating in trials.

 

A newly created role as a result of the need for a high level of coordination across large field trials, you will focus on delivering a coordinated set of major RRAP field trials, providing leadership and coordination across the program, and undertaking significant stakeholder engagement to underpin the delivery of these programs.

 

You will have oversight of and coordinate to a number of key functions which will include marine and shore-based logistics, managing a suite of permits, external participation, research infrastructure and Traditional Owner capacity building to underpin the successful delivery of these trials. Your ability to influence and coordinate across key functions and with individuals both within AIMS and across our RRAP partner organisations will be key to ensuring that our large field trial program is well organised and coordinated.
