  PhD Scholarship - AgResearch
  Dr S Loveday
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Palmerston North, New Zealand. Exciting PhD opportunity in Biofunctional Dairy Foods.
  Organic electrosynthesis
  Dr J Sperry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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

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.
  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.
  Tyrosine kinase inhibitors conjugated tumour targeting dyes for the treatment of glioblastoma.
  Dr J Jose, Dr P Choi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma (GBM) remains a lethal and difficult to treat cancer with a dismal outcome. Although we have a better understanding of the disease progression, a concurrent increase in therapeutic intervention is lagging.
  Molecular basis of bacterial glycosylation
  Dr T Allison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD scholarship (fees and stipend) is available in the Allison Lab at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.
  Harnessing photoheterotrophic metabolism to convert methane into biopolymers
  Dr C Carere
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. This project aims to develop a biotechnology platform for new methane-derived product markets whilst significantly improving the efficiency of methane bio-oxidation (methanotrophy).
  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; organic synthesis. 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.
  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.
