Jobs at Sharp
Laboratory Science Career Path
At Sharp, we offer positions within the clinical laboratory science profession.
Career tracks can be based on level of education — clinical laboratory technician (two years) and clinical laboratory scientist (four to five years).
Clinical laboratory technicians are competent in the collection, processing and analysis of biological specimens; the performance of lab procedures; the maintenance of instruments; and relating lab findings to common diseases/conditions.
Clinical laboratory scientists have a more extensive theoretical knowledge base, and not only perform laboratory procedures — including very sophisticated analyses — but also evaluate/interpret the results, integrate data, problem solve, consult, conduct research and develop new test methods.
