Animal Technician (trainee suitable)

Tuesday 28th March 2023

Australian BioResources (ABR) is a state-of-the-art facility that specializes in breeding and maintaining high-quality laboratory mice for medical researchers across NSW and throughout Australia. As an ABR Animal Technician, you will join our team of highly trained professionals and contribute to vital medical research by caring for precious research mice.

This is an entry-level role that requires no previous experience or qualifications, as we provide full training.

As an ABR Animal Technician, your primary responsibilities will be centred around ensuring the welfare of the mice. These duties will include:

Providing food, water, and a clean cage;

Monitoring animal health,

Checking for pregnancy and litters born,

Setting up breeding pairs (under the guidance of senior staff)

Maintaining accurate records using our bespoke online Animal Management System.

To be successful in this role, you will need to:

Be committed to animal welfare and care,

Possess strong observational skills, good verbal and written communication skills,

Be reliable, patient, and trustworthy, and

Be able to work individually or as part of a team in a fast-paced environment.

You will need your own transportation.

While previous experience working with animals or a related qualification is not required, it would be highly advantageous. A basic understanding of the husbandry, housing, and breeding requirements of laboratory animals or basic manipulation skills (such as injection techniques or euthanasia) would also be beneficial.

The salary for this position starts at $54,000 per annum, plus 10.5% superannuation and salary packaging options.
