  PhD Position in Chemisty: The Synthesis and Applications of Multicomponent Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)
  Prof S Telfer
Application Deadline: 31 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a tremendously exciting project which is poised to deliver high impact results. It will focus on the design, synthesis, and characterisation of metal-organic frameworks built up from multiple components.
  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.
  PhD or Masters’ position in building acoustics and mechanical metamaterials
  Dr A Hall, Dr George Dodd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you interested in metamaterials and their potential to improve people’s living conditions? The Acoustics Research Centre at the University of Auckland is inviting applications from highly motivated students to participate in an exciting new research programme on acoustics and mechanical metamaterials for radically improving sound insulation.
  He¯/H¯ High-Current Low-Metal-Contamination Volume-Cusp Ion Source for Semicon Applications
  Prof N Broderick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Implanted Helium or Hydrogen ions are used to exfoliate a thin layer of GaAs, which can be bonded to Silicon to create high quality Silicon-On-Insulator wafers having applications in optoelectronics, microwave electronics, and high temperature electronics [1].
  High-Tc Superconductor Research for Space Satellites
  Dr N Rattenbury, Dr J Cater
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.
  Multimode microresonator optical frequency combs.
  Assoc Prof S. G. Murdoch, Dr M Erkintalo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available starting as soon as possible to work on nonlinear optics in optical microresonators. The resonant enhancement of laser light launched into an optical cavity can be leveraged to increase the strength of nonlinear light-matter interactions.
  Optical Communications for Small Satellites
  Dr N Rattenbury, Dr J Cater
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.
  Clouds in Earth’s changing climate
  Dr T Dinh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clouds are the largest source of uncertainty in climate models’ prediction of global climate change.
  Supernova lightcurve population synthesis
  Dr J Eldridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Core-collapse supernovae are the explosive deaths of stars. With modern observing surveys we are discovering more of these events than ever before and finding they are incredibly diverse.
  Developing new physiological based tools and devices to improve heart function
  Dr R Ramchandra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) is a naturally occurring respiratory related modulation of heart rate giving rise to heart rate variability.
  PhD project: Seeing the unseeable: revealing the details of cardiac fibrosis with Super-resolution Microscopy
  Dr D Crossman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is a striking fact that up to 20% of the world’s population will develop heart failure in their lifetime. Heart failure is a condition that has a high mortality rate and one we have few treatments to prevent or to help repair.
  High-resolution Imaging of Near-Earth Objects and Space Debris: Real-Time Atmospheric Tomographic Signal Processing
  Dr SJ Weddell, Dr R Clare
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current research requires the development of a space situational awareness system for classifying Earth-orbiting artificial satellites.
  Decay resistance of naturally durable eucalyptus timber
  Dr C Altaner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some timbers are remarkably resistant against decay and therefore highly priced. These naturally durable timbers are rare and often sourced unsustainably from tropical forests.
  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.
  Synthesis of Carbon-rich Molecular Materials
  Dr N Lucas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New carbon-rich molecular materials, based on well-defined nanographenes and other novel polyaromatic architectures, will be rationally synthesised to better understand structure-property relationships.
