George Mason Trust PhD Scholarship In Wildlife Health

Managing the nematode parasites of kiwi in Operation Nest Egg programmes

 The opportunity: An opportunity exists for a high calibre veterinary or biological sciences graduate to undertake PhD study in wildlife parasitology within the Wildbase Research Centre which is part of the Institute of Veterinary Animal and Biomedical Sciences, Massey University, in Palmerston North, New Zealand.

The project: Our clinical and research experience has suggested that parasitic disease may be more common in endangered hosts that are part of intensive conservation management actions. Our major objective is to further our study of host-parasite dynamics in endangered New Zealand kiwi with the aim of improving husbandry and preventative treatment protocols to minimise the impact of parasitic disease on these conservation programmes. All five species of the iconic kiwi (Apteryx spp.) are intensively managed for conservation through a programme called Operation Nest Egg that involves the intensive rearing of young birds. The parasites that are causing disease and mortality in this system include nematodes that undergo visceral and neural larval migrans. We will study how these host-parasite systems in kiwi are affected by their intensive conservation management, and how parasitic disease may be minimised. We aim to use standard parasitology techniques and molecular investigations to characterise host-parasite dynamics and response to therapy and husbandry changes and compare this to data from wild populations. This research will enable us to develop tailored husbandry and therapeutic protocols that will address the imbalance in host-parasite dynamics that is currently occurring and directly benefit the welfare and conservation of Kiwi. Further, the results of our research will have implications and benefits to the intensive management of wild species globally.

The supervisory team:  consists of established researchers at Massey University and includes Professor Brett Gartrell, Dr Wendi Roe, Dr Fernanda Castillo-Alcala and Dr Kristene Gedye.

Funding: The project has received funding from the George Mason Trust which will cover a PhD scholarship (NZD $25,000 pa) and university fees for three years, and includes some research consumables money. The successful candidate will be expected to apply for more research funds as part of their PhD programme.

Eligibility: The Scholarship is open to persons who are eligible to enrol full-time for a research paper of 120 credits during a 12 month period towards a Doctoral degree at Massey University. A full-time candidate will be expected to work 40 - 50 hours per week on their Doctoral qualification. Part-time applicants are not eligible. Applicants already holding a PhD are not eligible to apply. Consideration will normally only be given to students with a GPA of 7.5 or better (on a 9 point scale). This is above an average grade of A-.

Candidates must be, or desire to be, dedicated scientists prepared to devote time, energy and intellect to solving problems encountered in their projects. Experiments and trials may require after hours and week-end work. Knowledge of parasitology, conservation biology and molecular biology would be advantageous but is not essential.

Closing date: 30th June 2016

PhD Scholarship in Musculoskeletal Modelling
Massey University, New Zealand

The Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences at Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand, invites applications for a 3-year PhD scholarship in musculoskeletal modelling in the Equine Group. The research is funded by the Equine Trust.

The research project will involve development of a model of the equine limb using the AnyBody® musculoskeletal modelling package, and testing the model with gait data collected from horses riding on different riding surfaces. The project is supervised by Dr G Robert Colborne, PhD. The scholarship covers all tuition fees for international and domestic students and includes a tax-free stipend of NZ$25,000 p.a.

The AnyBody® package is a proprietary software system that incorporates internal muscle forces and external forces on the skeleton to compute the forces loading the skeleton during movement.  The bulk of the AnyBody models developed to date have been human, and this project will develop and test an equine limb model.  See the company’s web site: www.anybodytech.com for further information.

Applicants should have a BSc(Hons) or MSc degree or equivalent in mechanical engineering or mechatronics. The nature of the project will require proficiency in numerical analysis and some ability to program within the AnyBody environment using AnyScript…a C++-like language.. Applications including a CV, academic transcript, and cover letter should be sent to Dr Robert Colborne, Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences, Massey University, Private Bag 11 222, Palmerston North 4442, New Zealand or by email to G.R.Colborne@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.

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.

Treasury University Challenge 2016: $2,500 offered towards University fees. The Treasury is offering University students the chance to engage with some of the most important public policy issues facing New Zealand – and an opportunity to win $2,500 towards University fees.

Essay topics for 2016 include government debt, freshwater ownership, Crown and Māori relationship, and innovation, productivity and growth.

Through our annual University Challenge, Treasury aims to give students the chance to address some of the most important public policy issues facing the country.  We want to give you:

-          A feel for the range of work that we do;

-          A chance to test your analytical skills on some live policy issues; and

-          A chance to share your ideas with us and help us work through these complex policy problems.

The Challenge asks for an essay of up to 2,000 words (excluding references) answering a key policy question.  The questions will cover a range of social and economic policy issues and we encourage students from any discipline to enter. 

The questions for this year’s Challenge will be focused on a key priority project we are working on this year, which is the development of our next long-term fiscal statement and update of our economic strategy.  Previous long-term fiscal statements and economic strategy (Holding On and Letting Go) are on our website.  As part of the development of this strategy and statement, we want to gather as many views as we can about the long-term issues and opportunities facing New Zealand and what we can do to lift the living standards of all New Zealanders. 

Questions: Please answer one (1):

Government debt

The government has set itself a long-term fiscal objective to reduce net debt to within a range of 0 – 20 per cent of GDP. To what extent do you think that’s an appropriate target? Other than debt, what other targets should the government have to encourage fiscal sustainability?

Your answer could include discussion of factors like:

•     the nature and likelihood of future shocks that might face the New Zealand economy,

•     changing demographics,

•     New Zealand’s saving behaviour and its reliance on foreign savings,

•     the efficiency of the financial sector,

•     the ability for future governments to enact social and economic policies.

 

Freshwater ownership, allocation and pricing

Considering the challenges facing the demand for freshwater across economic social and environmental needs, should New Zealand introduce a national pricing system for freshwater use? The essay would also need to address the pre-requisites for an efficient pricing system and identify any barriers in the NZ context.

 

Multicultural society

Last year NZ celebrated 175 years since the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi. This provides an opportunity to think about what the future of the relationship between the Crown and Maori will look like. Good progress continues to be made on Treaty settlements, the asset base of the Maori economy is growing, and the Crown and Maori share similar long-term investment objectives to promote the long-term economic and social wellbeing of their people. Given this:

•     Where are the opportunities for the Crown and Maori to work together to promote a prosperous, sustainable and inclusive NZ and what are the implications for institutions and policy making?

•     As policy makers, how should we think about this Crown and Maori relationship alongside the trend

towards an increasingly multicultural society?

 

Innovation, productivity and growth

The labour market, and the skills required to participate and contribute to it, is continuously evolving. Forty years ago occupations like bank clerks, secretaries and factory supervisors were considered quite stable and well paid. Demand for these services has declined, often due to improvements in technology, while there is an increasing proportion of jobs requiring higher qualifications (e.g. managerial, professional and technical roles).

•     What implications (either risks or opportunities) of this transitioning labour market do you see for the NZ

economy? Your answer should discuss economic, social and sustainability implications.

•     How should the New Zealand Government be responding to these future trends across a range of policy areas?
