DO YOU HAVE SPECIALISED MEDICAL LABORATORY SKILLS THAT YOU COULD SHARE WITH A DEVELOPING NATION?

Medical Scientist opportunities in Timor-Leste (East Timor)

Applications must address the selection criteria, which can be found in the position description on the e-recruit website.

Working and domestic environments you will encounter in Timor-Leste are far removed from those most scientists come to expect in Australia, and candidates must be able to demonstrate good resilience and patience.
Our International Health scientists must be prepared to go the extra distance to ensure support for the development of medical science practices in a sustainable way.
The Pathology Development Program operated by St John of God Health Care is part of a wider commitment to Timor-Leste which includes a longterm Nursing Development Program and primary health care projects in remote communities. Our work in Timor-Leste has been recognised by the Ministry of Health as amongst the most successful by a non-government agency since the country’s independence.
