About the Project

A fully funded PhD scholarship in Chemistry is available for research into formulating and characterising reconfigurable emulsions. Our aim is to investigate how to manipulate complex emulsions and control encapsulation of ingredients within the emulsions. This is an experimental project and the student will gain skills in using a variety of techniques, including light scattering, confocal fluorescence microscopy and rheology, to probe the structure and function of soft materials.

This PhD project is part of a newly funded MacDiarmid Institute research programme on Reconfigurable Systems - Towards Zero Waste’ . The successful candidate will join the School of Fundamental Sciences on the Palmerston North campus of Massey University in New Zealand.


The ideal PhD candidate will have a strong background in colloid and surface chemistry and experience in soft matter characterization techniques. The candidate will have a BScHons or MSc degree in physical/surface/materials chemistry with outstanding grades and a keen interest in multidisciplinary research. You should satisfy the requirements for admission as a PhD candidate at Massey University.
