  Type 1 Diabetes – untangling ethnic differences using a multimorbid co-localisation approach
  Dr J O'Sullivan, Dr W Schierding
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which autoreactive T cells destroy the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells leading to absolute insulin deficiency.
  Precision genetics to improve Asthma prediction, diagnosis and treatment in children
  Dr J O'Sullivan, Dr T Fadason
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asthma is a prevalent respiratory condition in children and adults globally, with the prevalence in NZ among the highest in the developed world.
  Polygenic and environmental markers of mental health status in New Zealand children
  Prof K Waldie, Dr C Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The successful applicant will work on a cross-faculty project investigating the biological and environmental pathways underpinning childhood depression and anxiety symptoms.
  Using mixed-omics to understand multimorbidities in polygenic disorders
  Dr T Vatanen, Dr J O'Sullivan
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available to use mixed omics, genetic variation, and electronic records to study multimorbidity in polygenic non-communicable diseases with Dr Justin O’Sullivan.
  Influence of female-specific hormonal factors on body composition and body weight trajectory
  Dr J Miles-Chan
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The influence of female–specific hormonal factors on body weight and body composition is largely unknown, owing mainly to a lack of robust longitudinal data.
  PhD position in Environmental Effects of Nanoplastics in Freshwater Ecosystems
  Dr K Simon, Dr M Kah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position addressing the environmental effects of nanoplastics in freshwater ecosystems is available in the School of Environment at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
  Organic electrosynthesis
  Dr J Sperry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of chemical synthesis is under constant pressure to produce molecules in a timely, economical and sustainable fashion. In this project we will demonstrate that valuable heterocyclic molecules can be efficiently synthesized in an environmentally friendly manner by simply using electric current.
  Targeting the neural and behavioural dynamics of cognitive control
  Dr C Erb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position in the area of cognitive neuroscience is available within the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
  Discovering molecular mechanisms regulating nitrogen demand signalling and nitrogen use efficiency in plants
  Dr N Imin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrogen (N) is a key determinant of crop productivity. In agriculture, the demand for nitrogen (N) fertilisers to produce food, fibre, and feed from crops and pastures is increasing dramatically.
  Assessing human immune cell interactions with endothelium under sheer stress conditions
  Dr C Angel, Dr S Graham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The endothelium lining blood vessels is constantly exposed to shear stress due to blood flow. The field of vascular biology has recently recognised the importance of shear stress, as it influences endothelial cell morphology, phenotype and function.
  Tyrosine kinase inhibitors conjugated tumour targeting dyes for the treatment of glioblastoma.
  Dr J Jose, Dr P Choi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma (GBM) remains a lethal and difficult to treat cancer with a dismal outcome. Although we have a better understanding of the disease progression, a concurrent increase in therapeutic intervention is lagging.
  Clean Drinking Water with Femtosecond Holographic Coherent Spectroscopy
  Prof C Simpson, Prof N Broderick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 3-year PhD project is part of a grant funded by the New Zealand MBIE to develop a nonlinear spectroscopy and imaging system to sense water-borne contaminants (e.g.
  PhD project: Seeing the unseeable: revealing the details of cardiac fibrosis with Super-resolution Microscopy
  Dr D Crossman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is a striking fact that up to 20% of the world’s population will develop heart failure in their lifetime. Heart failure is a condition that has a high mortality rate and one we have few treatments to prevent or to help repair.
  Developing new physiological based tools and devices to improve heart function
  Dr R Ramchandra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) is a naturally occurring respiratory related modulation of heart rate giving rise to heart rate variability.
  Identifying new therapeutic targets for diabetic heart disease
  Dr K Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD student to work in the field of cellular and molecular cardiac research in the Department of Physiology, University of Auckland.
