  New Dimensions in Cannabinoid Receptor 2 Therapeutic Development: Exploring Spatial and Temporal Signalling Bias
  Dr N Grimsey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
  Structure/function studies of component proteins of anti-feeding prophage (Afp), a bacteriophage tail-like particle using high-resolution cryo-EM and x-ray crystallography
  Prof A Mitra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate to carry out structure/function studies of component proteins of anti-feeding prophage (Afp), a bacteriophage tail-like particle using high-resolution cryo-EM and x-ray crystallography.
  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.
  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.
  High Pressure Enzymology
  Dr L Schneider
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pressure (up to 400 bar) significantly alters the thermal stability and kinetics of enzyme reactions.
  Funded PhD studentship: Airborne microplastics in New Zealand
  Dr L Revell, Assoc Prof S Gaw
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastics are ubiquitous contaminants in aquatic and terrestrial environments, and have recently been discovered in the atmosphere in several megacities and remote locations throughout the Northern Hemisphere.
  Natural product-inspired fragments
  Dr D Foley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Key words. drug discovery; natural products; medicinal chemistry. Motivated international and New Zealand-based candidates are invited to apply for a PhD Scholarship to investigate the synthesis and biological evaluation of a natural product-inspired fragment collection.
  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.
  Sex hormone actions in frailty and health during ageing
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well established that testosterone and estrogens can influence ageing, with hormone administration improving physical function, muscle and bone strength in some cohorts of the elderly.
  Stress responses in the diabetic heart: Effects of exercise training and glycaemic control
  Dr C Baldi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diabetic heart, even before developing disease, has impaired relaxation and contractility. These changes limit the work capacity of the heart (maximal cardiac output) and limit the functional capacity of people with diabetes.
