  Synthesis and bioassays of sugar-based clusters for treating cancer
  Dr O Zubkova
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A key factor in metastasis (the migration of cancer cells to remote parts of the body) is an enzyme called heparanase. It releases chemicals from the extracellular matrix that encourage tumour growth.
  Rational design and synthesis of novel pharmacological chaperones to treat Krabbe disease
  Dr F. Lamiable-Oulaidi, Dr S Cameron
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chaperone-mediated therapy (CMT) is an exciting new strategy to rescue partially-defective enzymes using small molecules called pharmacological chaperones (PCs).
  PhD Scholarship Biopolymers for tissue repair
  Dr SFR Hinkley, Dr S Carnachan
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Ferrier Research Institute has a full scholarship to undertake a PhD programme working on biopolymer isolation and complex carbohydrate analysis.
  Recognising the role of sponge mucus production in explaining Darwin’s coral reef paradox
  Dr J Bell
Applications accepted all year round

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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
