Diagnostic Technician


As a Diagnostic Technician with CSIRO’s Diagnostic Virology Team at the Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness (ACDP), you will undertake work across several aspects of diagnostic virology. Your primary focus will be on classical virology-based diagnostic assays involving virus isolation or antigen detection. On a day-to-day basis you will be involved in preparing samples for testing, performing routine virus isolation/detection tests, and undertaking a range of laboratory housekeeping activities. To promote multi-skilling in a range of scientific specialties, you may be asked to provide additional assistance to other diagnostic teams. This will enable you to respond appropriately to urgent changes in diagnostic requirements during disease outbreaks.
