The Opportunity

An exciting opportunity exists to work in the Department of Medicine at the School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health to support research through the reception and processing of blood samples to create blood fractions for long term storage and DNA extraction.

The biological resources associated with this study are finite and extremely valuable, handling and management of these resources is a highly responsible position on which an enormous amount of valuable research is based and reliant.

As the successful candidate you will have completed a Diploma of Biological Science with relevant experience or an equivalent combination of education, training and experience.

You will have worked in a collaborative research team and operated in an environment which required adherence to scientific procedures and laboratory routine. You are expected to understand blood processing protocols that will enable you to take corrective action and solve issues related to biological material.


You will apply theoretical and technical knowledge to perform a range of tasks, including sample accessioning of biological material such as blood, saliva and stools and engage with the laboratory information management system (LIMS). The role will include the processing, auditing, storage, retrieval and distribution of biological samples and the preparation and quantification of DNA for research projects.

If this sounds like a position that suits your current career focus we look forward to hearing from you.

This role is a full-time position with the possibility of flexible working arrangements.
