In the first instance, you will be expected to oversee the development, optimisation, validation and implementation of circulating biomarker assays for patients with solid and blood-based malignancies. Using cutting edge molecular and genomic techniques, our goal is to translate these circulating assays into routine clinical practice for patients at Monash Health. With a strong R&D focus, you will be expected to utilise your expertise in cancer genomics and molecular biology to fast-track the development of circulating biomarker assays for cancer patients.
