The University of Otago and Silventum Limited, a new spin-out company co-founded by Dr Carla Meledandri, are seeking a top-class candidate to undertake research leading to a PhD in the area of nanomaterials/materials science for dentistry.
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.
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.
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.
