  Imaging overcritical currents in a high-Tc superconducting dynamo
  Dr C Bumby, Dr R Badcock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Superconducting dynamos are unusual devices which enable large DC currents to be injected into a closed superconducting coil. These small high-current (>1 kA) devices have the potential to revolutionise the design and use of superconducting magnets.
  Discovery and characterisation of new antibiotics from uncultivated microbes.
  Dr J Owen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent developments in DNA sequencing technology have greatly enriched our understanding of the microbial world. By directly sequencing DNA extracted from communities of environmental microbes, we have been able to observe a hidden majority of microbial species that cannot be readily grown in the laboratory.
  Recognising the role of sponge mucus production in explaining Darwin’s coral reef paradox
  Dr J Bell
Application Deadline: 19 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reefs are among the most productive ecosystems in the world, providing extensive ecological and economic services.
  The population genomics of New Zealand seabirds and developing DNA markers to resolve uncertainties of bycatch identification
  Dr PA Ritchie, Dr N Rawlence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabird bycatch in long-line and trawl fisheries is a significant issue, particularly for albatrosses, shearwaters and the larger species of petrels.
  Trophic cascades resulting from the re-introduction of island birds
  Dr K C Burns
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately half of the avifauna of New Zealand has been driven to extinction following the arrival of humans. Most of what remains is restricted to predator-free offshore islands.
  Tropical sponge recruitment dynamics in a changing world
  Dr J Bell
Application Deadline: 18 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sponges are important functional components of coral reefs but despite our increasing understanding of how adult sponges are impacted by environmental change we still know little about sponge recruitment dynamics and how sponge early life stages respond to anthropogenic stress.
  PhD Scholarship in Hybrid Organic/Inorganic Nanoparticles for Luminescent Solar Concentrators
  Dr N Davis
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This scholarship is for students with a strong chemistry and potentially physics background with an interest in the development of new optically active materials for renewable energy systems.
  Voltage-tuneable magnetoresistive sensors
  Dr G Williams, Dr S Granville
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this 3-year PhD project, we seek a student to develop a new magnetoresistive sensor with a dynamically-controllable sensing axis.
