  • Full Time (80 Hours Per Fortnight + ADO)
  • Grade 1/2 Medical Scientist
  • Located at The Alfred, Anatomical Pathology Unit

The Department

Alfred Pathology Service (APS) provides a comprehensive range of pathology testing, consultation services and collection services to clinicians and patients of Alfred Health. The Anatomical Pathology Unit is located at The Alfred campus and comprises Histopathology, Special Histopathology, Cytopathology, Neuromuscular pathology and Mortuary.

The Role

Alfred Anatomical Pathology requires an experienced, motivated Scientist to join our Cytology team. Previous experience in non-gynaecological specimen preparation and screening is essential.

Currently APS has a collaborative agreement with Northern Health to provide Anatomical Pathology services to Northern Pathology Victoria (NPV). This appointment is associated with that collaboration and provides an exciting opportunity to be part of plans to establish an independent Cytology service and laboratory at NPV. Consequently, supervisory and quality management experience is highly desirable.
