  New Drugs, New Biology, Tomorrow’s Therapies: Design and Characterisation of Novel Cannabinoid Ligands
  Dr N Grimsey
Applications accepted all year round
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).
  Community composition and function of the hindgut microbiome in seaweed-eating marine fish - Project 2
  Dr K Handley, Prof KD Clements
Applications accepted all year round
The world’s increasing demand for food generates a powerful economic imperative for innovation in food production technology. Our novel system was discovered through our previous research in New Zealand, and has the potential to create several new products for the global food supply chain.
  Deciphering gender and ethnic disparity in obesity and cardiometabolic disease.
  Dr J Miles-Chan
Applications accepted all year round
New Zealand has the third highest rates of obesity in the world. Despite decades of effort to reduce these rates, they continue to rise, particularly in young women and especially amongst Māori and Pacific.
  Discovery of peptide ligands of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) chaperone ERp44 that counter metabolic syndrome
  Prof A Mitra
Applications accepted all year round
We are seeking a well-qualified and highly motivated candidate for the position of a doctoral student to carry out a peptide-based drug-design project involving a multi-disciplinary approach.
  Structural biology of membrane-bound glycosyltransferases
  Dr T Allison
Applications accepted all year round
A PhD scholarship (fees and stipend) is available in the Allison Lab at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.
  Dryland eucalypts as a floral resource for exotic & native bees in New Zealand
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
Although once forested, the dry lowland regions of eastern New Zealand are now largely devoid of native woody vegetation and dominated by anthropogenic land-use.
  Understanding and controlling cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr P Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiac arrhythmias remain the leading cause of death in patients with heart disease. An important trigger for arrhythmias is the inappropriate control of calcium within the cells of the heart.
  Bioactivity of 3D sugar-based heparan sulfate clusters for treating cancer
  Prof J Miller, Dr O Zubkova
Applications accepted all year round
A key factor in metastasis (the migration of cancer cells to remote parts of the body) is an enzyme called heparanase. It releases compounds from the extracellular matrix that encourage tumour growth.
  Enzyme Inhibitors via Transition State Design
  Prof E Parker
Applications accepted all year round
The Candidate will join an established team of academic staff and professional scientists working on the development of enzyme inhibitors as new therapeutic drug candidates.
  Discovery and characterisation of new antibiotics from uncultivated microbes.
  Dr J Owen
Applications accepted all year round
Recent developments in DNA sequencing technology have greatly enriched our understanding of the microbial world. By directly sequencing DNA extracted from communities of environmental microbes, we have been able to observe a hidden majority of microbial species that cannot be readily grown in the laboratory.
