The University of Queensland is currently offering generous postdoctoral fellowships, some targeted specifically at women, which can be held at the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI, www.qbi.uq.edu.au), a state-of-the-art facility located on The University of Queensland's (UQ) St Lucia campus, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
Established in 2003, the QBI's multidisciplinary environment is home to more than 300 staff and approximately 100 PhD students. Key areas of interest include computation and neuronal circuits, cognition and behaviour, neurogenesis and neuronal survival, genetics and epigenetics, neuronal development and connectivity, sensory systems, and synaptic function. QBI researchers have published almost 500 papers in the past two years, including 2 in Science, 4 in Nature, 2 in Neuron, 3 in Nature Neuroscience, 8 in Nature Genetics, 8 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA, and 18 in Journal of Neuroscience.
The period of appointment will be for three years and appointees are expected to commence in early 2015. The salary range is AU$71,528.60 – AU$79,708.50 (currently 1 AU$ = 0.94 US$). Each appointee will be entitled to maintenance funds of AU$20,000 over the term of the Fellowship to support research costs. Appointees relocating from interstate or overseas will be entitled to reimbursement of travel and relocation costs.
