The Institute for Evidence-Based Healthcare (IEBH) delivers world-class research, engagement and training that serves as a national and international resource for scholars, clinicians, system leaders, patients and families to improve evidence-based healthcare. The effective integration of research into practice advances the health and healthcare of Australians, influences health policy, improves global health outcomes, and enhances Bond’s reputation as Australia’s leading private, independent, not-for-profit University.

Established in 2010 as the Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice (CREBP), the Institute engages a globally connected team of highly-skilled researchers and educators who also provide advisory services. These
services aim to guide individuals and groups to consider ways to provide sustainable, evidence-based healthcare, and how research can better inform policy.

This is a long-term role for a highly experienced and energetic academic leader.

Reporting directly to the Director of the Institute, the Deputy Director & Research Professor is a significant role that requires research, academic and business leadership skills and experience.

Deputy Director & Research Professor will support the Institute Director to manage and lead a large team across diverse research and business portfolios of the Institute both at Bond University and at the Evidence-Based Practice Professorial Unit within the Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service (GCHHS).
