Reversible Assembly of Solid Patchy Particles

This PhD project will explore technological possibilities for colloidal self-assembly. The aim is to develop method(s) for reversible assembly of micrometer-scale solid colloidal particles into structures such as 3D porous matrices. Read more

Uncovering anti-arrhythmic potential of stellate ganglion purinergic receptors.

Background. Cardiovascular disease affects over 30% of people worldwide, and is one of the leading causes of death each year. Elevated sympathetic nerve activity is a common feature of cardiovascular disease, contributing to end-organ damage, morbidity and mortality [1-3]. Read more

Photonic simulators of quantum mechanics and solid-state physics

Photonic systems offer a highly-controllable platform for the exploration of universal wave phenomena. In this PhD project, you will experimentally and theoretically investigate the use of optical fibre resonators for simulating dynamical wave phenomena at the frontiers of quantum and mechanics and solid-state physics.

Optical tweezers

Optical tweezers use highly focused light to manipulate tiny particles. The Biophotonics laboratory in the physics department is developing optical tweezers for the manipulation of bacteria. Read more

Optical Frequency Combs

Optical frequency combs provide an ultra-precise spectroscopic ruler that allows the measurement of optical frequencies with unprecedented levels of accuracy. Read more

Optical coherence tomography (OCT)

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a real time, non-invasive and non-contact imaging modality for translucent and transparent tissue capable of providing morphological images at the micron scale resolution at more than 1mm depth penetration. Read more

Electrode surface dynamics in water electrolysis for green hydrogen production (Marsden FS funded project)

Water electrolysis is the leading process for “green” hydrogen production using electricity generated from renewable sources. This hydrogen can then be applied as a form of green energy to replace fossil fuels. Read more

Artificial Intelligence Enabled IVF

Background of Scholarship. Applications are invited for a PhD scholarship opportunity on exploring ways to improve in-vitro fertilization (IVF) through a combination of computer vision-based and machine learning techniques. Read more

Electric Propulsion Systems for Small Spacecraft

The University of Auckland is conducting research into electric propulsion systems for small spacecraft. We are looking for a PhD candidate to research the miniaturisation of a high-Tc superconducting magnetoplasmadynamic drive and its subsystems. Read more

Spacecraft Trajectory Optimisation

The University of Auckland is developing a research programme in low delta-v spacecraft trajectory optimisation. We are looking for a PhD candidate to continue work in this area and develop our existing algorithms. Read more

Space Optical Communications

The University of Auckland is developing a research programme in optical communications between ground and orbiting satellites. We are looking for a PhD candidate to adapt an existing optical telescope, and build optical instrumentation to demonstrate optical communications from satellites in low earth orbit. Read more
