As you may be aware, UQ Jobs was temporarily taken offline due to a data security breach at PageUp – our third party recruitment platform.

PageUp’s security consultants have confirmed that they have not identified any further threats and that PageUp is safe to use. Based on the outcome of that investigation and additional security improvements by PageUp to guard against similar incidents in the future, UQ is satisfied with the security of the system and has reinstated access to UQ Jobs.

As a safety measure, UQ requested a reset of all user passwords. In order to protect your personal account details, the next time you login to UQ Jobs, you will be prompted to set a new password. As good practice, UQ recommends that you do not re-use passwords, or use the same password across multiple systems.

More information about the data breach can be found on the PageUp website.

Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI)

The Australian Research Council Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology (CIBIT) is a multidisciplinary collaboration between researchers at The University of Queensland’s Centre for Advanced Imaging and partners in the Medical Technologies and Pharmaceutical industry. The purpose of this national centre is to provide research  training  for 20 early career and postgraduate students to fill critical skills gaps in the Medical Technologies and Pharmaceutical industry.  Trainees will undertake industry-driven research to overcome bottlenecks in the development and application of novel diagnostics, therapeutics and theranostics and to inform changes in regulatory policy that support industry growth. CIBIT is supported by industry partners Siemens Healthcare Pty Ltd, BGI International Pty Ltd, Inter-K Peptide Therapeutics, Clarity Pharmaceuticals Pty Ltd, Minomic International Ltd, Theranostics (Australia) Pty Ltd, Brisbane Veterinary Specialist Centre, Uniting Care Medical Imaging Pty Ltd and Red Radiology Pty Ltd.

The Centre for Advanced Imaging is a strategic initiative of The University of Queensland, reflecting the growth in biotechnology, biomedical and materials research requiring advanced imaging capabilities. As a leading imaging research facility in Australia, and one of a handful in the world, CAI brings together the skills of a critical mass of researchers and ‘state-of-the-art’, world- or Australian-first research imaging instruments. NMR, EPR, MRI, PET, CT and optical imaging are now key platform research technologies for studying the structure and function of biomolecules and living organisms, from proteins to the human.

CAI conducts research across the spectrum from development of new imaging technologies, analysis of molecular structure, synthesis of MRI and PET biomarkers targeting fundamental biological processes to studies of major diseases, such as neurodegenerative disorders, cancer and cardiovascular disease affecting a range of organ systems, through to imaging economically significant agricultural animals and plant material, minerals and construction materials.

The role

The successful applicant will work with CAI Academics and Industry Partners to develop a research program in Magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI) and MR image reconstruction analysis. They will be expected to participate in publication of scholarly papers, attend conferences, and assist with applications for research funding. A period of internship with an Industry partner may be possible.

The person

Applicants should possess a PhD in  the area of physics, mathematics, biomedical engineering, electrical engineering or an equivalent combination of relevant experience, training or education. The applicant must have the enthusiasm and drive to conduct high quality research and the ability to work independently with minimal supervision and co-operatively across multiple projects. In addition, the applicant should have excellent communication skills (academic writing in particular), and will be required to supervise and mentor junior researchers.
