  Dryland eucalypts as a floral resource for exotic & native bees in New Zealand
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Host preferences & biocontrol of variegated tortoise beetle in New Zealand eucalypt forestry
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New Zealand has an expanding eucalypt forestry industry with a focus on sustainable production of naturally durable timber that does not require chemical treatment for in-ground use.
  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.
  How does restoration alter plant traits, ecosystem multifunctionality and service provisioning in wetlands?
  Dr J Deslippe, Dr S Tomscha
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wetland restoration projects provide opportunities to regain the ecosystem services that have been lost or degraded through land conversions.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of beetles, spiders and weta in response to bottom-up and top-down controls
  Dr S Hartley
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will build on six-years’ of previous work to identify the biotic and abiotic drivers behind the spatial patterns and temporal dynamics of invertebrate communities in forests of the lower North Island of New Zealand.
  The interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity
  Dr J Deslippe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project addresses the interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity and ecosystem processes along elevational gradients in Tongariro National Park, New Zealand, with a particular emphasis on mycorrhizas and plant root traits.
  Trophic cascades resulting from the re-introduction of island birds
  Dr K C Burns
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately half of the avifauna of New Zealand has been driven to extinction following the arrival of humans. Most of what remains is restricted to predator-free offshore islands.
  Next-Generation Small Molecule Acceptors for use in Organic Solar Cells
  Dr P Hume, Dr J Hodgkiss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to develop new acceptor materials for organic photovoltaics (OPVs) in order to evaluate non-traditional design principles.
