Paediatric Perfusionist

Position: Paediatric Perfusionist

Location: Sydney, Australia


The Sydney Children’s Hospital Network (SCHN) is seeking an enthusiastic and dynamic perfusionist with a passion for paediatrics to join our team. Due to the expansion of our program, an increasing caseload and the development of a transplantation service, we are excited to announce a vacancy for a permanent full-time position.

As the successful candidate, you will join a high performing team that carries out approximately 400 paediatric bypass cases annually, with an increasing percentage of neonatal operations. The SCHN provides a comprehensive service for Sydney and the State of NSW and you will be engaged in a diverse and challenging mix of cases for all forms of congenital heart disease. You will also be involved in an established, collaborative, multidisciplinary ECMO program for both cardiac and non-cardiac indications, including a retrieval service from remote locations. In both the bypass and ECMO settings, you will be using the most contemporary state-of-the-art equipment and resources. Continuing education will be supported with both professional development leave and financial assistance.

An attractive package of remuneration, paid leave, conference/professional development leave and superannuation (retirement funding) will be provided.


Previous experience in paediatric perfusion would be a strength, however it is not essential. If you are a motivated, fast-paced learner with a strong desire to enhance your perfusion skills, this represents a fantastic opportunity for you. Current certification with the Australasian, European, UK, Canadian or American Board of Perfusion is required.
