  Ecological Effects of Microplastics in Freshwater Ecosystems
  Dr K Simon
Applications accepted all year round
A PhD position addressing the ecological effects of microplastics in freshwater and estuarine ecosystems is available in the School of Environment at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
  Investigating the environmental factors historic marine heat waves
  Dr M Bowen
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019
The project will identify historic marine heat waves from a large archive of high-resolution satellite sea surface temperature data and investigate the environmental factors causing them.The student will be based at the University of Auckland and working with a team from MetOcean, NIWA, and University of Otago.
  Understanding the rates and processes responsible for the movement of plastic through an estuary and potential accumulation
  Dr M Bowen, Assoc Prof G Coco
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019
The project will involve designing and implementing particle-tracking scenarios for different particle behaviour and estuarine settings to understand the rates and processes responsible for the movement of plastic through an estuary and potential accumulation.
  Effects of climate changes and marine heatwaves on rocky shore intertidal communities
  Dr M Thomsen
Applications accepted all year round
We seek a PhD candidate to join a 3-year research program based at the University of Canterbury (UC) to investigate the effects of climate changes and marine heatwaves on rocky intertidal communities.
  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.
  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.
  Modelling wave-induced sea ice breakup on small and large scales
  Dr F Montiel
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Ecology of sponges at shallow water hydrothermal vents
  Dr J Bell
Application Deadline: 17 May 2019
Sponges are important functional components of benthic communities across the globe and while there are has been considerable focus on the ecology of shallow water sponges, far less is known about deeper water sponges, particularly those associated with hydrothermal vents.
