  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.
  Small satellite micro-thrusters - developing the existing Pocket Rocket thruster to create a satellite-ready unit
  Dr J Cater, Dr N Rattenbury
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Auckland is developing micro-thruster systems for small and nano satellites. We are looking for a PhD candidate to work on creating new and developing existing thruster systems that are suitable for use within constrained satellite mass, volume and power budgets.
  He¯/H¯ High-Current Low-Metal-Contamination Volume-Cusp Ion Source for Semicon Applications
  Prof N Broderick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Implanted Helium or Hydrogen ions are used to exfoliate a thin layer of GaAs, which can be bonded to Silicon to create high quality Silicon-On-Insulator wafers having applications in optoelectronics, microwave electronics, and high temperature electronics [1].
  High-Tc Superconductor Research for Space Satellites
  Dr N Rattenbury, Dr J Cater
Applications accepted all year round

  PhD on nonlinear optics and laser physics in passive resonators
  Dr M Erkintalo, Assoc Prof S. G. Murdoch
Application Deadline: 28 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available starting as soon as possible to work on nonlinear optics in passive resonators. The resonant enhancement of laser light launched into an optical cavity can be leveraged to increase the strength of nonlinear light-matter interactions.
  Understanding timber drying defects
  Dr C Altaner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Utilisation of plantation grown eucalypts is often restricted to low value pulp chips as drying the timber without defects is challenging.
  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.
  Modelling wave-induced sea ice breakup on small and large scales
  Dr F Montiel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea ice is a key component of the climate system, which is experiencing significant changes as a consequence of global warming. The rapidly decreasing sea ice extent in the Arctic Ocean means solar radiations are increasingly being absorbed into the ocean, causing further melting and weakening of the sea ice cover.
  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.
