About the Project
The PhD project will involve the development of biological receptors for the sensitive and selective detection of mammal pest-specific biomarker molecules. This will include characterisation of these receptors ligand binding abilities and coupling to sensor formats for incorporation in wireless devices for remote sensing in the field. The student will work with Dr Andrew Kralicek, Molecular Sensing Team Leader (PFR) and Professor Jadranka Travas-Sejdic from the School of Chemical Sciences (University of Auckland).
The studentship offers 3-year PhD stipend/fees funded by the NZ Biological Heritage National Science Challenge.
Candidates will have relevant postgraduate qualifications in molecular biology and experience in data analysis (qualitative and/or quantitative). A background in materials chemistry would be desirable. Candidates must meet the University of Auckland eligibility criteria to enrol for this PhD.
