  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).
  Discovering molecular mechanisms regulating nitrogen demand signalling and nitrogen use efficiency in plants
  Dr N Imin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrogen (N) is a key determinant of crop productivity. In agriculture, the demand for nitrogen (N) fertilisers to produce food, fibre, and feed from crops and pastures is increasing dramatically.
  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.
  Ubiquitin binding and the assembly of ubiquitin chains
  Dr C Day
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A talented PhD candidate interested in studying the biochemical properties of ubiquitin E3-ligases is being recruited to join Catherine Day’s laboratory in the Biochemistry Department, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.
  Circadian rhythm of heart rate regulation in diabetes
  Dr R Lamberts, Dr CT Bussey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resting heart rate is the strongest predictor of mortality in patients with cardiac disease. Incompetence in heart rate regulation is an undervalued feature of the diabetic heart with major cardiovascular consequences.
  Disturbance of the ‘Cellular uric acid homeostasis’ as the driver for diabetes mellitus, hypertension and cancer
  Dr A Bahn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My group is interested in how uric acid controls major intracellular metabolic signalling pathways (mTOR, AMPK) in order to understand the onset of diabetes mellitus, hypertension and cancer.
  Novel approaches for treating cardiovascular disease
  Dr J Erickson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease is the primary cause of death throughout most of the world, and existing therapeutic options are unsuitable for a large percentage of patients.
  Shear stress sensing in arteries
  Dr M Fronius
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Fronius lab is investigating how ion channels are sensing shear stress and how this affects the function of blood vessels and blood pressure regulation.
  The role of the Exocyst complex in trafficking ion channels in polarised epithelia
  Dr K Hamilton, Prof F McDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Associate Professor Kirk L. Hamilton and Associate Professor Fiona J. McDonald. Proper trafficking of ion channels in epithelia is key to epithelial cell function.
  Understanding and controlling cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr P Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiac arrhythmias remain the leading cause of death in patients with heart disease. An important trigger for arrhythmias is the inappropriate control of calcium within the cells of the heart.
