  How does restoration alter plant traits, ecosystem multifunctionality and service provisioning in wetlands?
  Dr J Deslippe, Dr S Tomscha
Applications accepted all year round
Wetland restoration projects provide opportunities to regain the ecosystem services that have been lost or degraded through land conversions.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of beetles, spiders and weta in response to bottom-up and top-down controls
  Dr S Hartley
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
This project will build on six-years’ of previous work to identify the biotic and abiotic drivers behind the spatial patterns and temporal dynamics of invertebrate communities in forests of the lower North Island of New Zealand.
  The interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity
  Dr J Deslippe
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project addresses the interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity and ecosystem processes along elevational gradients in Tongariro National Park, New Zealand, with a particular emphasis on mycorrhizas and plant root traits.
  Bioactivity of 3D sugar-based heparan sulfate clusters for treating cancer
  Prof J Miller, Dr O Zubkova
Applications accepted all year round
A key factor in metastasis (the migration of cancer cells to remote parts of the body) is an enzyme called heparanase. It releases compounds from the extracellular matrix that encourage tumour growth.
  Enzyme Inhibitors via Transition State Design
  Prof E Parker
Applications accepted all year round
The Candidate will join an established team of academic staff and professional scientists working on the development of enzyme inhibitors as new therapeutic drug candidates.
  Improving the efficacy and delivery of the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr P Rendle
Applications accepted all year round
A PhD scholarship is available for an international or New Zealand candidates to work on the design and synthesis of molecules to treat neurological diseases.
  PhD in Advanced Quartz Resonator Technologies
  Dr N Strickland
Applications accepted all year round
Do you want to work with New Zealand’s leading electronics company, gain industry experience and get a PhD?. We offer the opportunity to undertake research towards a PhD in the area of quartz resonator technologies for the telecommunications industry.
  PhD in Ion-Beam Engineering of Superconducting Materials
  Dr N Strickland
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
An opportunity exists for an excellent student to undertake studies for a PhD degree on the topic of "An ion-beam engineered microstructure for high-performance superconducting films" under the supervision of Dr Nick Strickland and Dr Stuart Wimbush of the Robinson Research Institute of Victoria University of Wellington.
  PhD Studentship in Fiber optic sensing - developing a system for quench detection and prevention.
  Dr R Badcock
Applications accepted all year round
The Robinson research Institute is acclaimed for its integration of world leading research into applied practice alongside major commercial companies.
  Diatoms for the efficient trapping of solar energy
  Dr K Ryan, Dr Gerald Smith
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
A PhD scholarship in biological nanostructures is offered for experimental research into marine diatoms, and in particular to study their outer cell wall that functions as an efficient trap for solar energy.
