- Join CSIRO - Australia's premier science research organisation
- Provide high level development and validation of PCR based molecular diagnostic tests
- Support world-leading scientific research in a state-of-the-art high facility
The Diagnosis, Surveillance and Response Program (DSR program) at the Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) provides diagnostic and research capability required to investigate and respond to high impact and newly emerging diseases affecting livestock and other animals, including zoonotic agents.
The successful candidate will be required to perform day-to-day routine molecular diagnostic assays under NATA/ISO 17025 accreditation, contribute to the development/re-development and validation of PCR based molecular diagnostic assays and updating laboratory Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
You will also work and provide diagnostic training in overseas laboratories as required, to meet the project objectives of AAHL’s international animal health reference laboratory responsibilities. Overseas work will only be undertaken once the required competency standards are met and may involve multiple trips of 1-2 weeks duration, potentially up to 4 weeks, in primarily Asia/Pacific countries.
The appointee must be able to meet AAHL’s microbiological security and security assessment requirements.
