PhD Type

Public health interventions often seek to change the amount of time that people spend in particular behaviours, such as increasing physical activity or reducing sedentary behaviour, with the aim of enhancing health.
  PhD opportunity in open ocean aquaculture and applied fish physiology and behaviour
  Dr N Herbert
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The New Zealand government has an ambition of reaching $1 billion of sales from aquaculture by 2025, meaning that the $500 million revenue earned in 2018 must be doubled over a relatively short space of time in a country that has limited inshore licenses for aquaculture.

The Evolutionary Biomechanics Laboratory invites applications for a research studentship in the field of insect biomechanics/physiology, leading to the award of a PhD degree.
  Physical Activity and Health of Young Adults - A Self Funded PhD
  Dr B Dagger, Dr M Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Optogenetic voltage reporting to probe cerebellar to motor cortex connections
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cerebellum and the motor cortex are known to communicate during motor behaviour for the refinement of movement.
  Physical activity prescription to improve mental and physical health in people with vision loss
