Being the best doesn't mean being the largest. It's a combination of a differentiating clinically relevant business model that adds client value while offering our employees the security of a stable, ever-growing company. It's no wonder that BioReference Laboratories has become one of the nation's largest diagnostic laboratories with subsidiaries that give us a global reach and a parent company, OPKO Health, which adds volumes to our stature in the healthcare industry.
We are currently seeking a Microbiology Supervisor in the San Francisco area.

We are embarking on an initiative to further enhance our California operation, including the expansion of our clinical laboratory, installation of new analyzers and re-launch of our microbiology department. Relocation assistance may be provided if needed.
