School of Psychology

The School of Psychology is one of the most prestigious schools of psychology in Australia, and its strong reputation is built on excellence in both research and teaching. The School has thriving and dynamic research profiles in almost all areas of psychology, and is able to attract visitors from overseas and other institutions in Australia. It possesses good links, often through cross-appointed staff, with other schools in the University, thus creating opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborative research.


Further information about the School may be accessed on the School web site at www.psy.uq.edu.au/.


About This Opportunity

You will be responsible for engaging in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, research and supervision in psychology, with a focus on clinical geropsychology. You will also be expected to develop an independent program of externally funded research. Additionally, course coordination and administrative service within the School will be required.


This position is located at our picturesque St Lucia campus, renowned as one of Australia’s most attractive university campuses, and located just 7km from Brisbane’s city centre. Bounded by the Brisbane River on three sides, and with outstanding public transport connections, our 114-hectare site provides a perfect work environment – you can enjoy the best of both worlds: a vibrant campus with the tradition of an established university.
