  Synthesis of Carbon-rich Molecular Materials
  Dr N Lucas
Applications accepted all year round
New carbon-rich molecular materials, based on well-defined nanographenes and other novel polyaromatic architectures, will be rationally synthesised to better understand structure-property relationships.
  A Computational Theory of Collective Action
  Prof S Cranefield, Dr J Pitt
Applications accepted all year round
This project will apply computational modelling and simulation to investigate the problem of collective action. explaining how self-interested parties cam be motivated to coordinate their action to achieve a common benefit.
  Development of Micro/Nanofabricated Anti-icing Surfaces
  Dr S Lowrey
Applications accepted all year round
A PhD position is available in the experimental development of anti-icing surfaces. This position will be hosted by The University of Otago's Department of Physics and will be carried out in Prof.
  Circadian rhythm of heart rate regulation in diabetes
  Dr R Lamberts, Dr CT Bussey
Applications accepted all year round
Resting heart rate is the strongest predictor of mortality in patients with cardiac disease. Incompetence in heart rate regulation is an undervalued feature of the diabetic heart with major cardiovascular consequences.
  Understanding and controlling cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr P Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiac arrhythmias remain the leading cause of death in patients with heart disease. An important trigger for arrhythmias is the inappropriate control of calcium within the cells of the heart.
  New Partnership for Peacebuilding and Development - developing new theoretical platforms for promoting more inclusive and mutually-respectful aid partnerships.
  Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round
For successful peacebuilding and development, a critical element is collaborative and contextualised partnership between donor agencies and aid recipients.
  Pacifism and Nonviolence in International Relations

  Trusting the Enemy: Understanding Intergroup Trust in Conflict and Peace Studies through Social Psychological Approaches
  Dr M Kappmeier
Applications accepted all year round
Trust is the glue that holds relationships together – hard to build, easy to destroy. While intuitively, conflict groups and researchers alike have an implicit understanding of trust, when trying to describe what trust is, it becomes clear that it is an elusive and complex concept.
  Applying human drug discovery approaches to kauri die back disease
  Prof M Glass
Applications accepted all year round
Phytophthora agathidicida is currently threatening New Zealand’s most iconic tree, the kauri. Current efforts to halt its spread through New Zealand forests are failing.
  Development of chemical tools to interrogate cannabinoid receptors
  Dr A Vernall
Applications accepted all year round
Suitable for an international or New Zealand candidate to work on the design and synthesis of small molecules and chemical tools to study cannabinoid type 2 receptors.
