  Microalgae, biofilms and microplastics: An interdisciplinary approach to understanding the resuspension and transport of microplastics and the effects on ecosystem functions.
  Dr J Hope, Prof SF Thrush
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The Institute of Marine Science (IMS) and the School of Environment at the University of Auckland are looking for an excellent and highly motivated scientist with keen interests in the fundamental processes that may affect the distribution and fate of microplastics and their effect on various soft sediment ecosystem functions.
  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.

  Next generation methods for the isolation of plastic-degrading bacteria and fungi.
  Dr G Lear
Applications accepted all year round
We are currently seeking a PhD student with interests in microbiology, molecular biology and the environment to conduct research into the microbial degradation of waste plastics.
  The microbial ‘plastisphere’ – Characterisation of plastic-associated microbial communities in natural and engineered environments
  Dr G Lear
Applications accepted all year round
We are currently seeking a PhD student with interests in microbiology, molecular biology and the environment to conduct research into the microbial degradation of waste plastics.
  Conservation management of threatened New Zealand insects
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
New Zealand has a global reputation for being at the forefront of threatened species conservation.
  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.
  Host preferences & biocontrol of variegated tortoise beetle in New Zealand eucalypt forestry
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  How does restoration alter plant traits, ecosystem multifunctionality and service provisioning in wetlands?
  Dr J Deslippe, Dr S Tomscha
Applications accepted all year round
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 March 2019
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.
