About the Role:
Menzies is looking for a Research Midwife/Nurse to be part of a 5-year longitudinal study in First Nations children that were recruited from two existing clinical trials to form a birth cohort to age 6 years. This study will build on existing data and collect data up to 6 years to determine early life risk factors and biomarkers for lung health indicators.
The Research Midwife/Nurse will be responsible for participant recruitment, from the two existing trials, obtaining informed consent and follow-up visits that include clinical data and specimen collection, storage and transportation. This role primarily works on this research study; however, will also contribute across other respiratory studies as part of the Respiratory Health Group. This position will be based in Darwin and will require travel to remote communities (by light aircraft or 4WD) for up to 5 days per trip and up to 10 times per year.

Menzies is one of Australia’s leading medical research institutes dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and a leader in global and tropical research into life-threatening illnesses. If making a positive health impact in Australia and across our region excites and motivates you, join us as we continue to translate our research into effective programs and partnerships in communities across Australia and the Asia-Pacific region, and find enduring solutions to health problems that matter.
As a recognised national leader in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research, education and research training, Menzies is committed to providing a culturally inclusive and supportive work environment, and ensuring our workforce is representative of all people we work with.
