Stacked hands

Join us as we put Australia at the forefront of international best practice – a joint venture between USC, University of Queensland, Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, and Forest and Wood Products Australia. Opportunities also exist for short-term exchanges with other laboratories to complete the research.

The team work hard, but also ensure they have time to get to know each other outside of work. If this is a team you would like to join as a staff member, student, volunteer or visitor then we are interested in hearing from you.

For queries regarding partnering or visiting us, please email Kelisha Lyndon.
