Research Laboratory Heads - Genomics of Development and Disease

We seek to recruit junior and mid-career researchers to IMB Laboratory Head positions. As an IMB Laboratory Head, the successful applicant will run an independent research program funded by competitive grants and fellowships. The applicant will initially be supported by a competitive start-up package.  IMB laboratory heads will conduct world-leading research with a strong focus on research excellence and cutting-edge, internationally recognised research.

We wish to recruit two Laboratory Heads in the following areas:

  1. genomics, transcriptomics, human genetics and/or bioinformatics
  2. developmental biology, stem cells, gene regulation and/or animal models of disease.  

A joint appointment with other UQ faculties, institutes and/or a Brisbane-area research hospital is possible.

The person

We invite applications from senior postdoctoral researchers ready to launch their independent research careers and established independent researchers who meet the selection criteria.  The University of Queensland is an equal opportunity employer.


A five-year renewable contract will be offered where renewal is subject to performance. A remuneration package will be negotiated, commensurate with the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.
