UQ classifies all professional positions, including research professional roles that are for 12 months or longer.

The job evaluation process determines the classification level of a position based upon the work value of the position, including the:

  • training and experience required to perform the role
  • complexity of task level
  • level of responsibility
  • decision-making
  • autonomy required of the position.

See the Evaluation and Classification of Positions Policy and Procedures [5.40.03] for:

  • details about the process
  • forms.
