About Australian Red Cross Lifeblood

We’re a little different to what you might assume it’s like to work at a not-for-profit.

We’re leaders in innovation and inspired to drive change in the health sector. We have a diverse and inclusive group of talented people who have joined Lifeblood because they are passionate about improving health outcomes for all Australians.

Our donors are changing more lives than ever. So are our employees. No matter their role, every employee makes a positive impact and contribution towards the life-giving work we do. Every minute of every day, you’ll be helping to save lives.

Here’s where you come in:

The Product Development team works across a number of research themes broadly aimed at improving the quality and shelf-life of blood products, and making them safer for patients associated with blood transfusion. We use our expertise in cellular biology, molecular biology and immunology to understand both how blood products change during routine storage and to develop new ways of storing blood products.
You will provide research support across a number of projects on blood donation. Our goal is to deliver leading edge research that translates into evidence-based business practice, while expanding academic knowledge about blood donation. You will use experience and/or intellectual expertise to generate and analyse data, and from time to time, provide advice and recommendations in relation to project outcomes. This role will involve:

Blood separation and isolation of specific cell types
  • Functional assays of platelets, white cells and red blood cells
  • Cell proliferation and activity assays
  • Flow cytometry
  • Biochemical analysis of blood cells
