Updated: about 2 months ago

  • Interested to grow a career in aquatic animal research?
  • Work with a collaborative, multidisciplinary research team
  • Join Australia’s National Science and Innovation Agency!

As the Research Technician, you will have a sound knowledge of aquatic animal husbandry and the ability to intervene when poor animal health is apparent. An awareness of aquatic animal biosecurity and Animal Ethics principles relating to the use of animals for research purposes is expected.

As a member of the Zootechnics team within CSIRO’s Agriculture and Food business unit, you will be partly responsible for the management of several aquatic species (fish, prawn) experiments within the Livestock & Aquaculture Research Program working on nutrition, physiology, metabolism, breeding, health and animal production technologies. You may be a project lead investigator and may interact directly with external clients and industry.

There also may be a need to perform work duties and possibly relocate to a Northern Australian Aquaculture facility in the near future.
