  Towards the next generation of polymers
  Dr E Leitao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon-based polymers are ubiquitous. From textiles, to electronics, to packaging, to banknotes, to structural materials, we see and use these daily.
  Adult outcomes after antenatal steroids
  Prof JE Harding, Prof CA Crowther
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Liggins Institute at the University of Auckland has PhD projects assessing adult outcomes after antenatal steroids. Steroids given to women at risk of preterm birth markedly reduce the risk of serious illness in their newborn babies.
  Childhood outcomes after early nutritional interventions
  Prof JE Harding, Dr C McKinlay, Dr JA Brown, Assoc Prof T Wouldes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Liggins Institute at the University of Auckland has a PhD project assessing childhood outcomes after early nutritional trials.
  Cost consequences of different diagnostic strategies and different treatment targets for women with gestational diabetes
  Prof CA Crowther
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a major health problem globally. Within New Zealand one in every 11 pregnant women or over 5,500 women annually are affected.
  Do tighter glycaemic targets for managing gestational diabetes improve long-term outcomes for children? A data linkage study
  Prof CA Crowther, Prof JE Harding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes that develops during pregnancy or gestational diabetes (GDM) is a significant health problem that has a major, negative impact on maternal and perinatal health with lifelong consequences.
  Do tighter glycaemic targets for managing gestational diabetes improve long-term outcomes for mothers? A data linkage study
  Prof CA Crowther, Prof JE Harding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes that develops during pregnancy or gestational diabetes (GDM) is a significant health problem that has a major, negative impact on maternal and perinatal health with lifelong consequences.
  Visual and brain development in children with early risk factors
  Prof JE Harding, Prof B Thompson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position in the area of children’s visual development is available within the University of Auckland, New Zealand in collaboration with the University of Waterloo, Canada.
  Influence of female-specific hormonal factors on body composition and body weight trajectory
  Dr J Miles-Chan
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The influence of female–specific hormonal factors on body weight and body composition is largely unknown, owing mainly to a lack of robust longitudinal data.
  Structure/function studies of component proteins of anti-feeding prophage (Afp), a bacteriophage tail-like particle using high-resolution cryo-EM and x-ray crystallography
  Prof A Mitra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate to carry out structure/function studies of component proteins of anti-feeding prophage (Afp), a bacteriophage tail-like particle using high-resolution cryo-EM and x-ray crystallography.
  PhD position in Environmental Effects of Nanoplastics in Freshwater Ecosystems
  Dr K Simon, Dr M Kah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position addressing the environmental effects of nanoplastics in freshwater ecosystems is available in the School of Environment at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
  Assessing brain blood vessel function in atrial fibrillation using magnetic resonance imaging
  Assoc Prof JP Fisher, Dr C Morgan, Prof D Dubowitz
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain possess critical regulatory mechanisms to ensure adequate compensatory blood vessel dilation and increased perfusion (known as “cerebrovascular reactivity”).
  Developing new physiological based tools and devices to improve heart function
  Dr R Ramchandra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) is a naturally occurring respiratory related modulation of heart rate giving rise to heart rate variability.
  Identifying new therapeutic targets for diabetic heart disease
  Dr K Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD student to work in the field of cellular and molecular cardiac research in the Department of Physiology, University of Auckland.
  PhD project: Seeing the unseeable: revealing the details of cardiac fibrosis with Super-resolution Microscopy
  Dr D Crossman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is a striking fact that up to 20% of the world’s population will develop heart failure in their lifetime. Heart failure is a condition that has a high mortality rate and one we have few treatments to prevent or to help repair.
  Tyrosine kinase inhibitors conjugated tumour targeting dyes for the treatment of glioblastoma.
  Dr J Jose, Dr P Choi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma (GBM) remains a lethal and difficult to treat cancer with a dismal outcome. Although we have a better understanding of the disease progression, a concurrent increase in therapeutic intervention is lagging.
