About this course

There is a tremendous demand for people with experience in molecular biology, both in the academic and industrial settings. Such experience can be used at the "coalface" level where the person actually carries out research, at the management level where knowledge of techniques and approaches is required, at the regulatory level and in publicity/advertising.

The Research Extensive program is designed to enable scientists who wish to increase their technical and research skills in core areas of molecular biology, protein technology and bioinformatics and wish to obtain a more extended laboratory immersion than is available in the existing three semester Master of Molecular Biology. The extended program will also provide a strong preparation for entry into a PhD program.

Study options:

Graduates will have the opportunity to progress to the following programs:

  • Master of Philosophy

 Careers:

Graduates have a wide range of opportunities available. These include employment in pathology and hospital laboratories through to the food, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, as well as government departments and research laboratories, and the higher education sector.

While this degree may be accredited by an official industry accreditation body in Australia, completion of the degree may not result in graduates receiving automatic accreditation. Students can contact the relevant registration body for details of any conditions for accreditation.
