  Anti-fouling, Pulsing Filters for Wine Purification – A Polymer Chemistry Project
  Prof J Travas-Sejdic
Applications accepted all year round
A funded PhD position is available for this collaborative project between Plant & Food Research and the University of Auckland. The project will focus on surface functionalisation of novel electrospun filters to provide anti-fouling properties.
  Organic electrosynthesis
  Dr J Sperry
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Solving electromagnetic inverse scattering problems in the presence of uncertainty
  Dr A Austin
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Inverse scattering problems arise when electromagnetic waves are used to image ‘hidden’ objects, e.g., buried landmines, underground oil reserves, or tumours in the body.
  CFD of atmospheric re-entry
  Dr J Cater, Dr N Rattenbury
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Computational modelling of laparoscopic surgery
  Dr J Cater, Dr C Spence
Applications accepted all year round
Current laparoscopic surgery technology continues to present challenges that affect patient health and a surgeon’s ability to perform surgical procedures.
  Developing Nanosatellite Synthetic Aperture Radar
  Dr J Cater, Dr N Rattenbury
Applications accepted all year round
The Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Science are jointly developing a space systems programme at The University of Auckland.
  Small satellite micro-thrusters - developing the existing Pocket Rocket thruster to create a satellite-ready unit
  Dr J Cater, Dr N Rattenbury
Applications accepted all year round
The University of Auckland is developing micro-thruster systems for small and nano satellites. We are looking for a PhD candidate to work on creating new and developing existing thruster systems that are suitable for use within constrained satellite mass, volume and power budgets.
  High-Tc Superconductor Research for Space Satellites
  Dr N Rattenbury, Dr J Cater
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  PhD on nonlinear optics and laser physics in passive resonators
  Dr M Erkintalo, Assoc Prof S. G. Murdoch
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
A fully funded PhD studentship is available starting from March 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter to work on nonlinear optics in passive resonators.
  Microalgae, biofilms and microplastics: An interdisciplinary approach to understanding the resuspension and transport of microplastics and the effects on ecosystem functions.
  Dr J Hope, Prof SF Thrush
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The Institute of Marine Science (IMS) and the School of Environment at the University of Auckland are looking for an excellent and highly motivated scientist with keen interests in the fundamental processes that may affect the distribution and fate of microplastics and their effect on various soft sediment ecosystem functions.
