HL0050026
Veterinary Research Technicians provide technical assistance to Veterinary scientists and local Veterinarians and are responsible for performing general technical work in a variety of tasks that include testing, sampling and analysis of various samples and materials, and large and small animal maintenance. These technicians are expected to work independently and set up equipment, prepare and carry out experiments, take measurements and report on their findings, and assist in the care of pets and livestock. They may work in industry, higher education or for research organizations. Veterinary Research Technicians help scientists and veterinarians carry out existing procedures for diagnosis of disease, do experiments, analyze and test biological samples, and assist in the evaluation of specimens on a macroscopic and microscopic level.

Veterinary Research Technicians must be thorough, methodical and accurate when performing experiments and assisting in animal care. They must be able to record test results and write technical reports. Many laboratory procedures require solid mathematical skills and the ability to recognize errors in data collection and calculations. Good teamwork skills are very important, because technicians work closely with researchers, scientists, or teachers. Technicians must be prepared and willing to learn to use complicated equipment and to master new laboratory protocols.
