An exciting new opportunity exists for a Research Nurse to work at NCIRS in the area of clinical research, working on a number of existing and new clinical vaccine trials being undertaken by the Centre. NCIRS is looking for a self-motivated individual to join the team in the provision of clinical vaccination trials, including evaluating vaccination and other public health strategies to minimise the burden of childhood infectious diseases.

The National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS) is the leading body in Australia working in the area of immunisation research to inform policy and planning for immunisation services in Australia.
The position will be based at Kids Research located at the Westmead Campus of the Sydney Children's Hospitals Network.

The Research Nurse will be working with a team within NCIRS to coordinate clinical vaccine trials including a Q fever biologic study, a new study for a randomised controlled trial of mixed whole-cell/acellular pertussis vaccination versus acellular-only vaccination of infants, another study looking at the effects of immune supressing medications taken during pregnancy on mothers and babies and other trials in vaccine preventable diseases such as pertussis.

While the initial appointment will be up to full time temporary for 12 months, there is a high probability of extension.
