Massey University Doctoral Scholarship (College of Health)

Research topic: Optimising food and nutritional intake of older people

Subject field: Healthy ageing and human development
Research topic: This project builds on previous work to determine the nutrition status and risk factors for under-nutrition among older people living in the community, newly admitted to an in-patient AT&R ward or a residential care facility within a District Health Board catchment area of New Zealand.  Older adults living independently may be at risk of undernutrition if destabilizing situations are encountered such as loss of a spouse, injury or illness. Food purchasing, preparation, cooking and eating may become impaired and lead to a decrease in food intake.  Typically admission to hospital results from an acute insult and frequently this creates a hyper-metabolic state which incurs increased nutritional requirements.  Once individuals translocate to residential care the question is whether their ability to be nutritionally replete is already lost and has this led to the need to move, or have other concomitant factors that mandate the change in living situation impacted on nutritional status.  There is an opportunity to pool data and further extend the investigation of nutrition status and associated risk factors among older people across three different settings. Working with a highly skilled team of food, nutrition and medical professionals the successful candidate will design and deliver an appropriate intervention aimed to optimise food and nutritional intake for older people.  

Financial support: The scholarship includes a stipend of $25,000 per annum for a maximum period of 3 years.

Eligibility: The scholarship is intended to support an academically excellent student undertaking full-time doctoral studies at Massey University. Applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree with an appropriate Honours or a Master’s degree in Nutrition, Dietetics or related fields. Previous research experience would be an advantageous. To be eligible, students can be New Zealand citizens or a permanent resident, or overseas students from universities of good repute. Applicants must have a grade point average of 7.5 or better (on a 9 point scale). This is above an average grade of A-. The successful applicant must fulfil all conditions of the Massey University Doctoral Scholarship.

Selection criteria:
•    Strong academic record
•    Ability to conduct research independently and with a multidisciplinary team
•    Strong initiative, interest and enthusiasm
•    Good time management and organisational skills
•    Strong communication skills

Application process: This project is available for an immediate start and the PhD student should be enrolled at Massey University by 1 June 2016. Applicants should send a copy of their curriculum vitae, academic record, a statement of interest and the names and contact details of three referees to: Dr Carol Wham, phone: 09 2136644; email: c.a.wham@massey.ac.nz

PhD Scholarship in Mathematics
Massey University, New Zealand

The Institute of Fundamental Sciences of Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand, invites applications for a PhD scholarship in mathematics in the applied dynamics group.

Research will be concerned with geometric numerical integration, supervised by Professor Robert McLachlan. The scholarship covers all tuition fees for international and domestic students and includes a tax-free stipend of NZ$25,000 p.a.

A branch of numerical analysis that emerged in the 1990s, geometric numerical integration is a way of simulating dynamical systems that preserves key properties of the system exactly; sometimes this leads to startling improvements in performance. The research combines a study of the geometric properties of the system with numerical analysis and simulation, and the methods are widely used in computational physics and chemistry. For example, modern geometric integrators were used in 2004 in a large simulation of the solar system that resulted in a major re-calibration of the geological epochs of the Earth. See web site dynamics.massey.ac.nz for further information.

Applicants should have or expect to receive a BSc(Hons) or MSc degree or equivalent in mathematics; coursework and project work in numerical analysis or computational science is highly desirable. Starting date to be determined. Applications including a CV, academic transcript, and cover letter should be sent to Professor Robert McLachlan, Institute of Fundamental Sciences, Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand or by email to r.mclachlan@massey.ac.nz.

Student for Musseling-up: high-value Greenshell™ mussel foods

Efficacy of Greenshell™ mussel (GSM) foods and biomarkers of inflammation, joint and bone health (Led by Prof Kruger, Massey) co supervised by Dr Fran Wolber (Massey) and Dr Matt Miller (Cawthron)

A unique opportunity has arisen to start a fully funded PhD project under the supervision of Professor Marlena Kruger at the Massey University, in close collaboration with the Cawthron Institute and an industry-partner, in the sector of high value nutrition.

Project: The aim of this project is to demonstrate the efficacy of GSM foods/ingredients using in vivo and in vitro models of inflammation, joint and bone health. Cartilage degradation and bone damage in osteoarthritis (OA) is a multi-factorial process. The metabolic OA (MetOA) phenotype is caused by obesity-related chronic inflammation and thus involves interactions between diet, adipose tissue, cartilage, bone, inflammatory cells and endocrine responses. Omega-3 PUFAs, which are present at high levels in GSM, have been shown to significantly improve OA. The proposed study will assess GSM extracts, of particular relevance to the functional foods being developed through high value project, using in vitro cell lines, as well as in an in vivo rat model of MetOA and osteoporosis. Together, these will allow for comprehensive, robust observational and mechanistic studies of GSM’s effects on mobility, obesity, metabolic syndrome (MetS), and inflammation.

. The project is funded by the High Value Nutrition National Science Challenge “Musseling-up: high-value Greenshell™ mussel foods” research theme and aims to contribute to the development of novel GSM foods with health claims for export markets. The PhD thesis will build on existing cell line and animal models and aims to develop biomarkers for inflammation and/or bone/joint health.

This three year studentship includes an annual tax-free stipend, tuition fees, and funding for consumables. The research will be undertaken within the nutritional physiology team at Massey University, in Palmerston North, New Zealand. The PhD candidate will be enrolled and have supervisors from the Massey School of Food and Nutrition, and Cawthron institute.

Preferred skills/qualifications: The ideal candidate must have:
•    A B+ grade or better in a relevant Masters or Honours degree (e.g. biochemistry, nutrition, physiology), and demonstrated experience in performing research
•    Excellent written and oral communication skills (IELTS score of 7 across all bands required if English is not first language)
•    Diligence, resilience and enthusiasm.
Previous experience working with in vivo or in vitro models would be an advantage.  

Application process: This project is available to start from Feb2017. Applications close on 29th February 2016, and the PhD student should be enrolled at Massey University by 1 June 2016. Applicants should send a copy of their curriculum vitae, a statement of interest and the names and contact details of three referees to:

Massey University Doctoral Scholarship (College of Health)

Research topic: The gut microbiome - a new pathway to obesity prevention and metabolic health

The Project:
Although the causes of obesity and metabolic disease are complex, key drivers include over-consumption of highly palatable energy-dense and nutrient-poor foods. These diets have a profound impact on the gut microbiome, which comprises the bacterial community of the bowel. Tantalising new evidence suggests that microbial complexity and functionality in the gut may play a crucial role in obesity by modifying energy extraction from food and influencing host energy metabolism and fat storage. In the proposed study we will characterise the gut microbiome in two populations with markedly different metabolic disease risk (Pacific and European women) and different body fat profiles (normal and obese). Identification of distinct roles for diet, taste perception, sleep and physical activity in modifying the gut microbiome and its impact on obesity will greatly advance our understanding of the aetiology of obesity and open new avenues for therapeutic targets.

Advantages of this project: T
his project is based on our recently funded grant from the Health Research Council of New Zealand. You will work in a supportive multidisciplinary team of leading researchers integrating human nutrition and dietetics, epidemiology and public health, gut microbiome, circadian physiology and physical activity. http://www.hrc.govt.nz/funding-opportunities/recipients

Financial support:

Doctoral Project Optimising food and nutritional intake of older people

Subject field: Healthy ageing and human development

Research topic: This project builds on previous work to determine the nutrition status and risk factors for under-nutrition among older people living in the community, newly admitted to an in-patient geriatric ward or a residential care facility within a District Health Board catchment area of New Zealand.  Older adults living independently manage their own diets and food intake.  If destabilizing situations are encountered such as illness, cognitive impairment, loss of a spouse or injury then food purchasing, preparation, cooking and eating may become impaired.  Typically admission to hospital results from an acute insult and frequently this creates a hyper-metabolic state which incurs increased nutritional requirements.   Hospital diets should accommodate calorific demands but often food is unappetizing and unfamiliar, feeding ability may be affected by disease, medications or IV lines and cannulae and many patients do not maintain an appropriate intake.  Once individuals translocate to residential care the question is whether their ability to be nutritionally replete is already lost and has this led to the need to move, or whether other concomitant factors that mandate the change in living situation also impact nutrition.  

There is an opportunity to pool data and further extend the investigation of nutrition status and associated risk factors among older people across three different settings. Working with a highly skilled team of food, nutrition and medical professionals the successful candidate will design and deliver an appropriate intervention aimed to optimise food and nutritional intake for older people. 

Eligibility: This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated student to undertake full-time doctoral studies at Massey University. The applicant is encouraged to apply for a doctoral scholarship; some funding is available to support the project.  Applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree with Honours or a Master’s degree in Nutrition or related fields. Previous research experience would be an advantageous. To be eligible, students can be New Zealand citizens or a permanent resident, or overseas students from universities of good repute. Applicants must have a grade point average of 7.5 or better (on a 9 point scale). This is above an average grade of A-.

The successful applicant will also have:
An ability to work independently and with a multidisciplinary team
Excellent quantitative analysis skills
Strong communication skills
Enthusiasm and drive

Application process: Applicants should send a copy of their curriculum vitae, academic record, a statement of interest and the names and contact details of three referees to: Dr Carol Wham, email: c.a.wham@massey.ac.nz

We are looking for a suitable candidate for a Masters Project at the Institute of Food, Nutrition and Human Health, College of Health, Massey University (Albany).

Title: Understanding the relationship between sweet taste thresholds, intensity, hedonic preference, food choice and eating behaviour

Project outline Sensory attributes of food such as smell, taste, appearance and texture affect food selection. Among these sensory qualities, taste perception is thought to be the strongest driver of food selection. Several studies have identified links between taste perception and the dietary habits that influence metabolic health. However, the nature of the relationship between taste perception, food choice and eating behaviour is not well understood.

Our understanding of taste perception is complicated due to a wide variety of sensory testing methodologies used in different studies and a paucity of data about the reproducibility of taste measurements. Therefore, the assessment of test–retest reliability of taste perception measurements is important for two reasons. Firstly, it will identify and help to overcome the methodological parameters that contribute to the variability of taste measurements. Secondly, it will aid the development of precise and robust taste sensory quantification methods for the evaluation of the biological role and the health significance of taste perception.

The main aims of the study are to: • Evaluate the repeatability of sensory testing methods and to identify the most robust and consistent methodological approaches. • Investigate whether sweet taste sensitivity and hedonic preference can explain dietary intakes, eating habits, eating behaviour, and endocrine and metabolic parameters of health.

The student will participate in the development of the study design, submission of an ethics application, and all aspects of data collection including assessments of taste perception, hedonic preference, satiety, dietary intakes, eating habits, eating behaviour and anthropometric measurements.

Financial support The Scholarship is for university fees for a domestic student (approximately $6,000) for one year.

Advantages of this project • Working in a supportive multidisciplinary team of researchers in Human Nutrition and Dietetics, Physiology, Endocrinology and Food Science and Technology. • Working on a novel project with strong scientific foundations and commercially relevant objectives.   Status This project is available for an immediate start and will begin as soon as a suitable candidate is found. Applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition, Physiology, Food Science and Technology or related fields with appropriate Honours or Postgraduate Diploma qualifications to enrol for a Master’s degree. Some research experience in the above areas will be advantageous.

Selection criteria • Strong academic record • Ability to conduct research within an interdisciplinary team environment • Strong initiative, interest and enthusiasm • Good time management and organisational skills • Sound communication skills • Working with human subjects may require you to work on evenings, early mornings and/or weekends • For international students, excellent English language proficiency is essential

Application process and further information Applicants should send a copy of their curriculum vitae, a statement of interest and the names and contact details of three referees to : Professor Bernhard Breier; Tel: 09-4140800 Ext: 41185; E-mail: B.Breier@massey.ac.nz .


 

New Zealand Lifecycle Management Centre -  Potential Master’s Scholarship

1. Title of Research Topic: Developing Catchment Level Water Stress Indicators to Facilitate the Evaluation of Water Footprint Impacts from New Zealand Construction Products and Buildings

2. Funding: This will be a one year Master’s scholarship of $20,000/year which is being made available through the BRANZ Scholarship Programme. It is hoped to appoint a student to start by April 2014 at the latest.

3. Focus area: There are a number of published methodologies to calculate a water footprint but no one internationally agreed method (Kounina et al., 2013). Currently, water stress indicators available in the published literature are averaged over large areas and use out-of-date datasets.

The proposed research will evaluate the different proposed water footprint methods and their suitability for application to the New Zealand building and construction sector. In particular, it will involve calculation of water impact assessment factors using the different methods, and New Zealand-specific data, building on an initial exploratory study in this area (Herath et al., 2010, 2012), to develop appropriate water stress factors at the New Zealand watershed level or equivalent.

The School of English and Media Studies is currently seeking applicants for postgraduate scholarships at  Massey University  (New Zealand) in Media Studies for a research project that is externally funded by the Marsden Fund of the New Zealand Royal Society and entitled, “Geographies of Media Convergence: Spaces of Democracy, Connectivity and the Reconfiguration of Cultural Citizenship.”  The chief supervisor of the successful applicants will be Dr Kevin Glynn.
There are scholarships available at Masters (one year fulltime). We welcome applicants who wish to develop their research interests within our overall project theme. We welcome applications from indigenous scholars and Latin American(ist) scholars and scholars working at the intersection of human geography and media studies.

Master’s Scholarship
This scholarship is for a 1-year fulltime Master’s degree (MA or MPhil) by thesis (i.e., no coursework is involved). It will be awarded to an applicant with a high GPA and a Bachelor’s degree in Media Studies, Cultural Studies, Geography, or a cognate discipline. It covers living costs as well as the full domestic component of tuition fees. The total value of the scholarship is NZD $16,000 plus up to $6,000 in fees. It is open to New Zealand domestic and international students (though international students would be required to provide their own source of funding to make up the shortfall between the domestic and international tuition fees).

Project Summary
We are currently living through a period in which centralized forms of media, such as national television and mainstream journalism, are perceived to be in crisis. This crisis is creating new spaces for the development of alternative ways of knowing, watching and making media. Along with them, media convergence has emerged as a multidimensional concept that references expanding interconnections and interactivity between media technologies, sites, users and production processes, as well as increasingly interactive relationships between politics and popular media cultures. Technological development, media convergence, and attendant transformations of everyday media production, circulation and consumption practices are giving rise to new forms of political discourse and involvement. The proposed research seeks to delineate the possibilities and limitations for contemporary social transformation within this new media ecology. We will do this by exploring a series of media forms, discourses, practices and technologies (including indigenous people’s media as well as contemporary developments in entertainment television) whereby new kinds of cultural citizenship are being actively forged. This project is thus designed to advance incipient dialogues between human geography and media studies by asking how practices within popular cultures of media convergence can contribute to the construction or renovation of democratic citizenship.
The researchers involved with this project will analyze processes of media convergence whereby diverse groups in different parts of the world are actively fashioning new forms of political engagement, identity production and cultural citizenship. The research team will thus explore significant sites of media activity for the production of new political imaginaries within the current global historical conjuncture, which is characterized by four key interrelated elements: 1) the appearance and expansion throughout the world of resurgent and increasingly networked indigenous social movements; 2) the emergence of a highly elaborated and complex convergent media ecology marked by rapid technological development, digitalization, miniaturization and mobilization; 3) the rise and spread of neoliberalism, which is increasingly subject to growing contestation, particularly within Latin America; and 4) increased securitization and militarization organized at multiple levels of social life particularly since September 11, 2001. Within this broad historical conjuncture, areas of focus within our project include 1) the expansion of indigenous television in different parts of the world; and 2) the ongoing transformation of entertainment TV and concomitant proliferation of new modes of interactive engagement with such media by digitally empowered citizens. We propose to examine the processes of convergence culture at work within these phenomena in order to identify and analyze citizenship and citizen-like practices that are occurring across different media formats and platforms.

Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorates

IRAP PhD
International Relativistic Astrophysics Doctorate Program
Duration: 3 years

Programme description: Following the successful scientific space missions by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile, as well as the high-energy particle activities at CERN in Genève, IRAP is a Ph.D. program dedicated to the formation of scientists in the field of relativistic astrophysics. The students of such a program will lead the theoretical developments of one of the most active fields of research, based on the above observational and experimental facilities. This program needs expertise in the most advanced topics of mathematical and theoretical physics, and in relativistic field theories. It requires the ability to model the observational data received from the above facilities, as well as all the basic knowledge in astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology. This activity is necessarily international, no single university can cover the broad expertises.

This has resulted in the programme offered by IRAP PhD in one of the youngest and most dynamic French universities, pole of research and teaching in the Euro-Mediterranean region (PRES): the University of Nice. It benefits from the presence of the astrophysics research institute of Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur involved in relativistic and non-photonic astrophysics as well as of the Center of ICRANet at Villa Ratti, where the coordination of the Doctorate will take place. The participation of the Freie Universität Berlin and of the Einstein Institute in Potsdam offers the possibility of teaching in relativistic field theories at the highest level. The University of Savoie offers the link to the particle physics at CERN. The activities at the University of Rome, at Stockholm University and at ICRA and ICRANet offer teaching programs in all the fields of relativistic astrophysics, including cosmology, the physics of gravitational collapse, gamma-ray bursts, and black hole physics. The University of Ferrara will be present with lectures and researches in the topics they have pioneered such as the development of space missions in X and gamma ray astrophysics and observational cosmology. Through ICRANet the extra-European connections with Brazil, China and India will be guaranteed: in China, with the Shanghai Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Science, studying the formation and evolution of large-scale structure and galaxies; in India, with the Indian Centre for Space Physics (ICSP), renowned for its research on compact objects as well as on solar physics and astrochemistry; in Brazil, with ICRA-BR at CBPF, where a successful program of research and teaching in relativistic astrophysics has been established in recent years.
