  World-class research programme at the University of Otago

Funding Type

PhD Type

 . The University of Otago is ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world, and has the highest-possible rating of 5 Stars Plus in the QS global university performance ratings.
  Mushrooms and truffles - why are they different?
  Dr D Orlovich, Dr C Brown, Dr T Summerfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An excellent PhD candidate (’A’ grades) interested in researching the fundamental process of mushroom development is being recruited to join a multidisciplinary team led from the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.
  New ways of terminating transcription in bacterial pathogens
  Dr C Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An excellent PhD candidate (’A’ grades) interested in researching the fundamental process of gene expression in bacteria is being recruited to join a multidisciplinary team led at University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.
  Development of chemical tools to interrogate cannabinoid receptors
  Dr A Vernall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Ubiquitin binding and the assembly of ubiquitin chains
  Dr C Day
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A talented PhD candidate interested in studying the biochemical properties of ubiquitin E3-ligases is being recruited to join Catherine Day’s laboratory in the Biochemistry Department, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.
  The population genomics of New Zealand seabirds and developing DNA markers to resolve uncertainties of bycatch identification
  Dr PA Ritchie, Dr N Rawlence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabird bycatch in long-line and trawl fisheries is a significant issue, particularly for albatrosses, shearwaters and the larger species of petrels.
  Numerical modelling of sediment transportation and surface roughness on vegetated coastal dune systems
  Assoc Prof S Wakes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coasts and coastal communities around the world are vulnerable to sea level increases and intensity of storm events. Vegetated sand dunes are relied upon for protection, buffering coastal communities from the sea.
  Synthesis of Carbon-rich Molecular Materials
  Dr N Lucas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Modelling ocean wave dissipation through pancake ice fields
  Dr F Montiel, Dr A Suanda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In a warming climate, ocean wave activity is projected to intensify in the polar regions. Sea ice forms as pancake ice at the ocean surface under intense wave conditions.
  Numerical and analytical studies of early universe Einstein-Euler-scalar field models
  Dr F Beyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The point of this project is to study the Einstein’ equation (as a model of gravity) coupled to the Euler equations (as a model of cosmological matter) and the scalar field equations (as a model of the “inflaton” driving “inflation”) in the cosmological setting close to a big bang singularity.
  Numerical study of global properties of general relativistic space-times
  Prof J Frauendiner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of a larger research program which tries to study the global structure of space-times by numerically solving the conformal field equations, a system of partial differential equations which is equivalent to the vacuum Einstein equations.
  Understanding genome regulation via DNA methylation and enhancer interactions in cancer
  Dr M Parry, Dr A Chatterjee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gene expression changes are likely in cancer patients, as well as methylation changes. However, there is a paucity of enhancer data for cancer patients.
  How can epigenetic changes be used to predict and prevent cancer?
  Dr A Chatterjee, Dr E Rodger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab, led by international leader in epigenetics Dr Aniruddha Chatterjee, combines cutting edge next-generation sequencing, computational analysis, and experimental work to decipher the role of epigenetic modifications and cellular phenotype in cancer.
  Mathematics for large-scale inference algorithms in Bayesian demographic analysis
  Prof D Bryant
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of a major research programme tackling one of the major open challenges in data science. how to merge existing machine learning (ML) tools, which are fast but fallible, with Bayesian approaches, which are the gold standard but computationally unobtainable.
