Why work at the HRI?
The Heart Research Institute (HRI) is an internationally recognised medical research institute that performs cutting-edge cardiovascular research from state-of-the-art facilities located in Newtown, Sydney and the Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney.
The HRI was established in 1989 as an initiative of The National Heart Foundation of Australia, to exist in the supportive environments of The Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and The University of Sydney. The desire of this scientific model was to allow scientists to be inspired by the challenges encountered at the patient’s bedside, while also giving them access to the multidisciplinary capabilities of The University of Sydney.
More than 25 years on, this model is more relevant than ever. Integrating medical research with the delivery of health services has become a mantra for how contemporary medical research institutes should organise themselves for translational impact and improved public health outcomes.
This is a unique time to join the HRI, with several developments occurring that are likely to fundamentally change the way the organisation operates and performs in the years ahead – in a word, the next 5 years have the potential to be ‘transformative’.
