Showing 1 to 10 of 15
  Development of chemical tools to interrogate cannabinoid receptors
  Dr A Vernall
Applications accepted all year round
Suitable for an international or New Zealand candidate to work on the design and synthesis of small molecules and chemical tools to study cannabinoid type 2 receptors.
  A Computational Theory of Collective Action
  Prof S Cranefield, Dr J Pitt
Applications accepted all year round
This project will apply computational modelling and simulation to investigate the problem of collective action. explaining how self-interested parties cam be motivated to coordinate their action to achieve a common benefit.
  Understanding and controlling cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr P Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiac arrhythmias remain the leading cause of death in patients with heart disease. An important trigger for arrhythmias is the inappropriate control of calcium within the cells of the heart.
  Synthetic Organic Chemistry in situ: Developing Bioorthogonal Chemical Reactions
  Dr A Gamble
Applications accepted all year round
The project will involve the design and multi-step synthesis of small molecules or polymers using synthetic chemistry techniques such as anhydrous reaction conditions, column chromatography, HPLC purification, NMR, MS and IR characterisation.
  Synthesis of Carbon-rich Molecular Materials
  Dr N Lucas
Applications accepted all year round
New carbon-rich molecular materials, based on well-defined nanographenes and other novel polyaromatic architectures, will be rationally synthesised to better understand structure-property relationships.
  Development of Micro/Nanofabricated Anti-icing Surfaces
  Dr S Lowrey
Applications accepted all year round
A PhD position is available in the experimental development of anti-icing surfaces. This position will be hosted by The University of Otago's Department of Physics and will be carried out in Prof.
  Trusting the Enemy: Understanding Intergroup Trust in Conflict and Peace Studies through Social Psychological Approaches
  Dr M Kappmeier
Applications accepted all year round
Trust is the glue that holds relationships together – hard to build, easy to destroy. While intuitively, conflict groups and researchers alike have an implicit understanding of trust, when trying to describe what trust is, it becomes clear that it is an elusive and complex concept.
  Applying human drug discovery approaches to kauri die back disease
  Prof M Glass
Applications accepted all year round
Phytophthora agathidicida is currently threatening New Zealand’s most iconic tree, the kauri. Current efforts to halt its spread through New Zealand forests are failing.
  New Drugs, New Biology, Tomorrow’s Therapies: Design and Characterisation of Novel Cannabinoid Ligands
  Dr N Grimsey
Applications accepted all year round
Compounds derived from Cannabis sativa, termed “cannabinoids”, primarily exert their effects via two G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), Cannabinoid Receptors 1 and 2 (CB1 and CB2).
  Pharmacoepidemiological study to systematically investigate drug-related adverse events in older people
  Dr P Nishtala
Applications accepted all year round
A self-funded PhD studentship is available under the supervision of Dr Prasad Nishtala at the University of Bath. This is a collaborative project which will involve working with Dr Hamish Jamieson from the Big Data and Ageing Research Group at Christchurch, NZ.
