The University of Queensland (UQ)

Australia

For more than a century, The University of Queensland (UQ) has educated and worked with outstanding people to deliver knowledge leadership for a better world.

Consistently ranked among the world’s top universities, UQ has a proud history of creating change through research and commercialisation, and our impact extends across the globe.

Our six faculties, eight globally recognised research institutes and 100+ research centres attract an interdisciplinary community of more than 1500 scientists, social scientists and engineers who continue UQ’s tradition of research and innovation leadership.

This is reflected in UQ being the number one recipient of Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowships and Centres of Excellence since the schemes’ inception, and the top ranked Australian university in the Nature Index tables.

UQ is also an undisputed leader in research commercialisation. To date, UQ discoveries have produced US$22 billion in gross product sales, and UQ intellectual property has founded more than 100 startups – a milestone unsurpassed by any other Australian university.

With 6600 staff and 53,600 students – including more than 18,600 postgraduates and approximately 18,000 international students from 134 countries – teaching, researching and studying across our three campuses, UQ is a hub for curious minds who innovate and explore.

Through a strong focus on teaching excellence, UQ has won more national teaching awards than any other Australian university and attracts the majority of Queensland’s high achievers, as well as top interstate and overseas students.

Our 268,000 graduates are an engaged network of global alumni spanning more than 170 countries, and include approximately 14,500 PhDs.

UQ is also one of only three Australian members of the global Universitas 21; a founding member of the Group of Eight (Go8) universities; a member of Universities Australia; and one of only three Australian charter members of the prestigious edX consortium, the global consortium of massive open online courses (MOOCs).

No cool refuge for deep-sea life

Deep-sea creatures could be more vulnerable to global warming than previously thought.

Temperatures are rising faster at the sea surface than in the darkest depths, suggesting that deep-ocean life will be largely unaffected by climate change.

Now, a team led by researchers from the University of Queensland has used climate models to calculate the speed and direction of temperature changes (climate velocity) at different ocean depths over the last 50 years, and for the rest of this century under different climate-change scenarios.

The team compared their findings to the thermal ranges of 20,000 marine species to assess how they respond to shifts in their comfort zone. Under controlled greenhouse-gas emissions, climate velocity below 4,000 metres could become 5.5 times faster than at the surface by 2100, leaving little time for deep-sea communities to adapt or move.

Limiting deep-sea fishing and mining could be one step towards increasing ecosystem resilience all depths, the researchers say.
