The Opportunity

Monash Antibody Technologies Facility (MATF) was established to provide high throughput custom antibody production to support the research and development needs of customers from all sectors of the life sciences: academia, government research institutes, small to medium sized biotechnology companies, and large pharmaceutical companies (both nationally and internationally).

In this role as Research Manager - MATF you will be responsible for the operation of the Monash Antibodies Technologies Facility (MATF) and of the robotics facility (RoboCore) under the supervision of the MATF Director. In addition to monoclonal antibody development and isolation, the position has a very strong client focus with the generation and promotion of research partnerships and substantial relationships with internal Monash University researchers and international collaborators. This includes direct communication with health professionals, medical research institutes, industry and government bodies and officials to promote the research capabilities and objectives of both facilities. Accordingly, you will have extensive experience in the technologies related to the monoclonal antibody production and automation of screening protocols to deliver innovative outcomes for the platform.

As the successful applicant you will possess substantial general management experience, particularly in dealing with a range of specific customer requirements and staff providing high quality antibody research.

Specific responsibilities will include operations and team management, process and policy review and development and high level stakeholder management.

We welcome applications from candidates who have:

  • postgraduate qualifications in a relevant discipline and extensive relevant experience
  • expert knowledge and a record of hands-on experience in monoclonal antibody development and characterisation
  • extensive knowledge of laboratory procedures, including a wide range of laboratory techniques.

If you believe you can fulfil these requirements, you are strongly encouraged to apply.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
