The Ocean Genomes Laboratory is hiring!

The Minderoo OceanOmics Centre at UWA Ocean Genomes Laboratory is now hiring our technical team to support high throughput DNA sequencing and genome assembly. We currently have three "wet" lab positions going: a Sequencing Specialist Scientific Officer, and two Sequencing Technician positions. Both roles will be providing technical support in the lab, particularly with respect to all aspects of DNA sequencing (sample extraction, library preparation and setting up sequencing runs). You'll get to play with the latest sequencing toys, including Illumina NovaSeq 6000, NextSeq 2000 and iSeq 100, the PacBio Sequel IIe, and ONT (probably PromethION and MinION).

The closing date for applications is 11:55 PM AWST on Thursday 27 October 2022.

To learn more about these opportunities, please click on the links above or contact Rich Edwards at We will also be advertising some bioinformatics positions soon.

About the team

The Minderoo OceanOmics Centre at UWA combines a joint Ocean Genomes Laboratory, an OceanOmics Laboratory, and Computational Biology Services.

Equipped with the latest high-throughput sequencing technology and in collaboration with global partners, the Ocean Genomes Laboratory will generate a comprehensive library of high quality marine vertebrate reference genome assemblies. All such reference genome data will be subject to rigorous QA/QC and all assemblies will be released publicly with open access.

The Ocean Genomes Laboratory will undertake research and development under the direction of Minderoo’s ambitious OceanOmics Program which has the goal of revolutionising ocean conservation through novel marine sampling and genomics approaches and scaling these to significantly advance our knowledge of marine life. The Ocean Genomes Laboratory and Computational Biology Services will include state of the art infrastructure including sample and eDNA preparation areas, flow cytometry, single cell sequencing equipment and the latest bioinformatics and computational biology tools.
