  Novel trophic pathways through coral reef sponges
  Dr J Bell
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sponges are important functional components of coral reefs that are involved in a number of different trophic pathways.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of beetles, spiders and weta in response to bottom-up and top-down controls
  Dr S Hartley
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Climate change impacts on New Zealand Fiordland ecosystems
  Dr A Rogers, Dr J Bell
Application Deadline: 30 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global climate change has the potential to increase water temperatures by as much as 2.5C over the next century in some locations, with impacts on species distribution patterns, nutrient levels and primary production.
  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.
  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.
  Next-Generation Small Molecule Acceptors for use in Organic Solar Cells
  Dr P Hume, Dr J Hodgkiss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to develop new acceptor materials for organic photovoltaics (OPVs) in order to evaluate non-traditional design principles.
  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.
  The interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity
  Dr J Deslippe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  How does restoration alter plant traits, ecosystem multifunctionality and service provisioning in wetlands?
  Dr J Deslippe, Dr S Tomscha
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wetland restoration projects provide opportunities to regain the ecosystem services that have been lost or degraded through land conversions.
