Working at Perron Institute

The Perron Institute for Neurological and Translational Science is Western Australia’s longest established medical research institute. The Institute is internationally connected and affiliated with a number of leading universities in Perth and the eastern states.

A well-connected location

Located in the warm, sunny surrounds of Perth, the Institute’s primary home is at Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre in Nedlands, whose site includes two major public hospitals, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and Perth Children’s Hospital.

Situated near the banks of Perth’s beautiful Swan River and close to our pristine sandy beaches and bustling city. Perron Institute and its surroundings have a lot to offer for anyone considering working here.

Research that makes a tangible difference

The research institute’s focus is the cause, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological and neuromuscular disorders. Through our laboratories and specialist clinics, we translate the results of our research into treatments that will create the future of personalised, precision medicine by tackling global health challenges and tailoring therapies to specific groups and individuals.

Perron Institute’s on-site treatment clinics are a key strength of the Institute, allowing our clinicians to treat people with complex neurological disorders.

Living in Perth

Despite being one of the world’s most geographically isolated cities, Perth is ranked sixth in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s ranking of over 140 cities. Our city boasts a cost of living lower than other major Australian cities, an average of eight hours of sun per day, accessible infrastructure, and stunning natural scenery even in the heart of the city.

Some of our favourite WA destinations are only a hop, skip, and a jump away including wineries in the local Swan Valley, and the idyllic home to the Quokkas, Rottnest Island.

With a vibrant culture scene, Perth offers a smorgasbord of experiences, from fantastic world-class foodie spots, cultural festivals throughout the year, or Saturday night sports at the newly built Optus Stadium, there is no shortage of leisure activities for newcomers and locals alike.
