Our Researchers

The CSIR has a staff complement of around 2 400, of whom some 65% are scientists, engineers and technologists. They are highly specialised in their fields – they are geneticists, virologists, software developers, polymer chemists, mathematicians, industrial engineers, materials engineers, environmental scientists, ecologists, etc. This multidisciplinary nature perfectly positions the organisation to help solve the increasingly complex challenges of our time.

These are just some of the bright young scientists behind ideas that work.
