  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.
  Recovery of algal communities along stress gradients resulting from an earthquake-disturbed coastal zone
  Prof D Schiel
Applications accepted all year round
In November 2016, a massive earthquake lifted over 100km of coastline of New Zealand’s South Island by up to 6m, causing considerable disruption to the nearshore marine ecosystem.
  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.
  The interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity
  Dr J Deslippe
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  Understanding the role of changes in means and variability in multiple stressors over single and multiple lifetimes in coralline algae
  Dr C Cornwall
Application Deadline: 15 May 2019
Project Description. I am seeking a highly motivated PhD student to be part of programme using coralline algae as model species to answer important questions regarding how climate change will impact marine species.
