Are you looking to start a career with an expanding research team? Actalent is actively hiring Animal Research Techs for a growing clinical research team in the Lafayette area! Apply TODAY if interested!

We have 10 new and exciting Animal Research Tech roles open now that work DAY SHIFT and offer tons of hands on training and development. This is a great way to get into the research industry or just add marketable skills to your resume! These positions will work hands on with Vets and other research staff to ensure animals are getting the top level of care possible. The work this team is doing is crucial to support innovative research projects. There is a manual aspect to this role and it also requires a high level of attention to detail in order to follow all research and trial policies.

We have some teams that focus more with large animals (horses, pigs, cows, etc) and some team that work more with smaller animals (mice, rabbits, rodents, etc). Other than the types of animals you would work with, the daily tasks are the same on each team. About 40% of the day will be providing animal care, another 40% will be maintaining their housing, and the last 20% is recording data, quality assurance, and other administrative tasks.


1) High school diploma or equivalent required

2) Six months or more performing animal care

3) Must be able to have indirect and direct physical contact with multiple species of animals

4) Must have interest and ability to perform physically demanding job duties

5) Animal certifications (LAT, ALAT, LATG, etc) or animal schooling (vet tech, AS or BS studies, etc) is a huge plus

6) Animal research experience is also a huge plus
