  Experimental Evolution of Endosymbiosis
  Dr H Hendrickson, Dr E Ostrowski
Applications accepted all year round
Complex eukaryotic life began when one free-living cell gave up independence and partnered with another. A major question in evolution concerns how such partnerships are able to form and stabilise.
  Anti-fouling, Pulsing Filters for Wine Purification – A Polymer Chemistry Project
  Prof J Travas-Sejdic
Applications accepted all year round
A funded PhD position is available for this collaborative project between Plant & Food Research and the University of Auckland. The project will focus on surface functionalisation of novel electrospun filters to provide anti-fouling properties.
  PhD on disease and stress genomics of two New Zealand finfish species
  Dr M Wellenreuther, Dr Steve Bird
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to be part of a group to investigate the disease and stress genomics of the New Zealand snapper (Chrysophrys auratus) and trevally (Pseudocaranx georgianus).
  Organic electrosynthesis
  Dr J Sperry
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Computational modelling of laparoscopic surgery
  Dr J Cater, Dr C Spence
Applications accepted all year round
Current laparoscopic surgery technology continues to present challenges that affect patient health and a surgeon’s ability to perform surgical procedures.
  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).
  Identifying outcomes to predict indigenous child health in New Zealand
  Assoc Prof KM Groom
Applications accepted all year round
Interventions in pregnancy and around the time of birth are often tested in randomised clinical trials to improve maternal and perinatal health.
  Community composition and function of the hindgut microbiome in seaweed-eating marine fish - Project 1
  Prof KD Clements, Dr K Handley
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.
