The Westmead Research Hub, based on one of the largest healthcare precincts in the southern hemisphere, encompasses two Area Health Services and three Medical Research Institutes. The Centre for Cell and Gene Therapy (CCGT) is part of the newly established cellular therapeutics platform on the Westmead campus. The Centre comprises 4 specialised cleanrooms within two hospitals on the Westmead campus with a third facility on campus currently being planned. The range of activities currently being undertaking on the campus is diverse, and includes well-established clinical services and experimental programs in human cell transplantation at Westmead Hospital, and a developing gene therapy capacity at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead (CHW).


The Centre is seeking an experienced Cellular Therapies Facility Coordinator to oversee the operation and strategic development of the Centre. While the position is offered as a full-time 2 year contract, there is a possibility to negotiate secondment from an existing NSW Area Health Service.  Contract extension beyond two years is a possibility based on funding and performance.  Successful applicants will be employed through The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, on behalf of the Hub partners.
