Our organization would like to prevent issues of type "Bug" to be closed by individuals that are not part of the QA team, we want to ensure that bugs are only closed by QA members to make sure they were tested and approved.
is it possible to do this in Jira?
Change the workflow - your easiest option is to copy the existing one to a new name, then edit the "workflow scheme" so that it says "Bugs: new workflow, all others: old workflow". Now edit the new workflow, adding a "condition" to the close-issue transition, it should say something like "and only members of the QA role can execute this transition"
