  Enhancing the performance, condition, safety and reliability of offshore wind energy infrastructure systems using optimal design, inspections, structural health monitoring and structural control
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr P Dunning, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.
  Marine risers: experimental damage detection, monitoring and numerical modelling using digital twins
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr D Van der A, Prof E Pavlovskaia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine risers are critical components of any offshore oil and gas production operations linking subsea field developments with production and drilling equipment atop fixed or floating facilities.
  Imaging overcritical currents in a high-Tc superconducting dynamo
  Dr C Bumby, Dr R Badcock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Superconducting dynamos are unusual devices which enable large DC currents to be injected into a closed superconducting coil. These small high-current (>1 kA) devices have the potential to revolutionise the design and use of superconducting magnets.
  Theory of Molecular Scale Thermoelectricity
  Dr H Sadeghi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. 30 September 2019 or 6 January 2020. This PhD project aims to exploit room temperature quantum and phonon interference in nanoscale junctions to design high-efficiency thermoelectric materials and devices for converting waste heat in consumer electronics and server farms into electricity.
  Theory of Nanoscale Electronics
  Dr H Sadeghi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. 30 September 2019 or 6 January 2020. The project. PhD studentship in the Theory of Nanoscale Electronics.
  CFD of atmospheric re-entry
  Dr J Cater, Dr N Rattenbury
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Faculties of Science and Engineering are jointly developing a space systems programme at The University of Auckland. This cross-disciplinary effort has brought together engineers and scientists interested in growing New Zealand’s expertise in space mission design, satellite construction and space science.
  Energy transfer processes at gas/wall interfaces under extreme conditions
  Dr B Peterson
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This funded PhD studentship involves the on-going development of a numerical code to model spectra and time-dependent signals obtained using a hybrid femto-second/pico-second (fs/ps) rotational coherent anti-Stokes Raman Spectroscopy (R-CARS) near gas/wall interfaces.

  Electrostatic jetting for high definition printing
  Dr A Ismail
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

If we apply high enough voltage difference to a liquid coming out of a nozzle, the liquid will deform into a cone shape and a fine jet, much smaller than the nozzle in size will be produced in what we call electrostatic jetting.
