The School has high quality facilities at the UQ Gatton Campus, providing the teaching, research and clinical infrastructure and resources to develop its strong reputation as a leading provider of veterinary training, research and clinical care. The school also maintains a small animal hospital and large animal clinic at Dayboro, north-west of Brisbane.

About This Opportunity

The primary role of the position is to provide support to the teaching, diagnostic services and research missions of the School of Veterinary Science in the discipline of Histology.

The campus also operates several commercial plant and animal production units in rural technologies to support teaching, research and hands-on training.

Our Ideal Candidate

The successful applicant should possess a Degree in Science or related discipline majoring in Histology, Medical Laboratory Science, Veterinary Science or Veterinary Technology or equivalent combination of training and previous clinical laboratory experience. The successful applicant will have advanced histological skills and experience in a variety of tissue types, immunohistochemistry, digital pathology and special staining techniques.
