Project Description

A PhD studentship is available in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Auckland, for work on a project in dynamical systems and mathematical physiology. The project aims to identify the physiological mechanisms that underlie the long-period calcium oscillations and waves seen in experiments on pancreatic and parotid acinar cells, and involves the researchers James Sneyd, Hinke Osinga, and Vivien Kirk at the University of Auckland, and Martin Wechselberger at the University of Sydney.

A good background in dynamical systems and scientific programming is desirable, as is an interest in mathematical physiology.

Interested candidates should send an email expressing their interest, along with a CV and academic record, to Vivien Kirk at [Email Address Removed]
