  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.
  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.
  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.
  High-resolution Imaging of Near-Earth Objects and Space Debris: Real-Time Atmospheric Tomographic Signal Processing
  Dr SJ Waddell, Dr R Clare
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research project is concerned with development and implementation of signal and image processing algorithms for predicting a distortion function when viewing an artificial satellite or large space debris objects thorough atmospheric turbulence and with the aid of a 60 cm to 100 cm optical telescope.
  A Statistical Approach to Understanding the Complexity of Bryozoan Mineralogy
  Dr P Dillingham, Prof D Bryant
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Project. Bryozoans are one of the most mineralogically-complex phyla in the sea. These small colonial invertebrates make hard skeletons from seawater in any of three carbonate minerals, sometimes in various combinations, in response to controls that are intrinsic (phylogeny, development) and extrinsic (environment).
  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.
  Numerical modelling of sediment transportation and surface roughness on vegetated coastal dune systems
  Assoc Prof S Wakes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coasts and coastal communities around the world are vulnerable to sea level increases and intensity of storm events. Vegetated sand dunes are relied upon for protection, buffering coastal communities from the sea.
  Recognising the role of sponge mucus production in explaining Darwin’s coral reef paradox
  Dr J Bell
Application Deadline: 19 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reefs are among the most productive ecosystems in the world, providing extensive ecological and economic services.
  The population genomics of New Zealand seabirds and developing DNA markers to resolve uncertainties of bycatch identification
  Dr PA Ritchie, Dr N Rawlence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabird bycatch in long-line and trawl fisheries is a significant issue, particularly for albatrosses, shearwaters and the larger species of petrels.
