  Experimental Evolution of Endosymbiosis
  Dr H Hendrickson, Dr E Ostrowski
Applications accepted all year round
Complex eukaryotic life began when one free-living cell gave up independence and partnered with another. A major question in evolution concerns how such partnerships are able to form and stabilise.
  PhD on disease and stress genomics of two New Zealand finfish species
  Dr M Wellenreuther, Dr Steve Bird
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to be part of a group to investigate the disease and stress genomics of the New Zealand snapper (Chrysophrys auratus) and trevally (Pseudocaranx georgianus).
  New Drugs, New Biology, Tomorrow’s Therapies: Design and Characterisation of Novel Cannabinoid Ligands
  Dr N Grimsey
Applications accepted all year round
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).
  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.

  Discovery of peptide ligands of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) chaperone ERp44 that counter metabolic syndrome
  Prof A Mitra
Applications accepted all year round
We are seeking a well-qualified and highly motivated candidate for the position of a doctoral student to carry out a peptide-based drug-design project involving a multi-disciplinary approach.
  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.
  Structural biology of membrane-bound glycosyltransferases
  Dr T Allison
Applications accepted all year round
A PhD scholarship (fees and stipend) is available in the Allison Lab at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.
  Circadian rhythm of heart rate regulation in diabetes
  Dr R Lamberts, Dr CT Bussey
Applications accepted all year round
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.
