Queensland Brain Institute
Established in 2003, QBI (www.qbi.uq.edu.au) is housed on the St Lucia campus of UQ. It is home to more than 450 staff, including 41 group leaders, working across a range of disciplines, who are focussed on discovering the fundamental mechanisms that regulate brain development and function in health and disease.
Over the past decade QBI has become one of the world’s leading neuroscience research institutes. It played a key role in contributing to UQ attaining the highest possible score of 5 for neuroscience, in the 2010, 2012 and 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) reviews, one of only two universities in Australia to achieve this.
Our work at the Neurula Lab spans the gamut from genetic studies of animal models to imaging studies of human clinical patients. We are working to understand the basic brain mechanisms that are affected by these diseases and to determine how the brain responds to therapeutic interventions. The answers to these fundamental questions will form the foundation for new clinical treatments.
The purpose of this position is to lead projects evaluating novel immune-based targets for Alzheimer’s disease. This research involves animal surgeries, behavioural testing, microdissection, microscopy and western blot analysis. Some experience with organotypic slice culture, primary neuronal and glial cell cultures and iPSc cells would be well regarded.
Candidates must have a PhD in the area of neuroscience, immunology, molecular biology or relevant discipline. In addition the successful applicant will need extensive animal handling experience and be familiar with a range of advanced techniques including stereotactic surgeries, brain microdissection, microscopy (light and confocal), and protein and RNA extraction from brain tissue. The appointee will be responsible for experimental design, data analyses, and manuscript preparation and have a research trajectory that includes competitive applications for both independent and collaborative funding to support their research focus.
This is a full-time, fixed term appointment at Academic level A or B for 12 months, the level of appointment will be commensurate with qualification, experience and academic achievements.
The remuneration package will be in the range of:
Academic Level A – $81,545 – $87,535 p.a., plus employer superannuation contributions of up to 17% (total package will be in the range of $95,408 – $102,416 p.a.)
