  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.
  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 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.
  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.
  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 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.
  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.
  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.
