Job Description:

Queensland Brain Institute

The Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) was established in 2003 on the St Lucia campus of UQ, and is home to more than 450 staff and students, including 41 Group Leaders. The researchers work to understand the development, organisation and function of the brain. This is done by exploring the neural circuits in the brain, how information is processed in these circuits, how their function results in behavioural outcomes, and how dysfunction of these circuits leads to disorders such as dementia, stroke, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety and depression, and schizophrenia. Ultimately, researchers aim to develop novel therapeutic approaches to treat disorders of neural function, and to improve learning in classrooms and in the workplace.

Over the past decade QBI has become known as a world-leading neuroscience research institute. It played a key role in contributing to UQ attaining the highest possible score of 5 for neuroscience, in all four of the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) reviews (in 2010, 2012, 2015 and 2018), one of only two universities in Australia to achieve this.
