Job Title: Team Leader Wilson Blood Cancer Genomics – Molecular Pathology

At Peter Mac we aim to continuously improve cancer care, research and education across all cancers and for all people affected by cancer: changing lives, breaking new ground. Everything we do is underpinned by our core values, Excellence, Compassion and Innovation. Welcoming people from a wide variety of different backgrounds and experiences is critical to fostering innovation, cultivating compassion, attracting and retaining top talent and providing the best possible cancer care for our patients.





Ongoing Full Time (80+ADO) Role

The Molecular Pathology Laboratory in the Department of Pathology is looking for an experienced Grade 4 Medical Scientist to lead our Wilson Blood Cancer Genomics Team and to help support the molecular diagnostic services. The permanent full-time position presents an exciting opportunity to contribute to this rapidly growing field.


Suitable candidates must be highly motivated, self-driven, patient-focused, and possess a relevant science degree with genetics and molecular biology experience. Demonstrated experience leading a team in an accredited Diagnostic Molecular Pathology / Genetics laboratory, and subject matter expertise in the subdisciplines of Molecular Haematology & Genomics would be an advantage.


Applicants to this role should provide a covering letter outlining relative key skills and experience to assist us with our assessment.


PLEASE NOTE: Victorian Department of Health has recently announced a program of reforms across the public pathology system in Victoria. As part of these reforms, the pathology services from the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, the Royal Women’s Hospital and the Royal Children’s Hospital will transition to a new separate public pathology entity. The new model for delivering public pathology services will present an exciting opportunity to improve the scope, scale and reach of pathology services and testing capability to all Victorians.


As this role is with Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, the successful candidate for this role will be initially employed by Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. Once the new public pathology entity is fully formed, which is anticipated to be in late 2024, this position and the successful candidate’s employment (including terms and conditions of employment) will transition to the new public pathology entity. Please contact the recruiter if you have any questions on the pathology reforms and transition of this role to the new entity.
