Level C and D promotions

For promotion to Level C or D, the 2018 application period is closed. The 2019 application period dates will be included in the academic submission timetable in early 2019.

For the 2018 application period, the UQ Jobs online application process was unavailable due to a system outage, and the closing date was therefore extended to 20 June 2018. All applicants submitted documentation by email to the relevant CAP contact listed below. If you have any queries or concerns about a 2018 application, email your CAP contact.
