PhD Scholarship in the College of Health -- Massey University Doctoral Scholarships
Massey University, Wellington Campus, School of Public Health and/or Food and Nutrition invites applications for a PhD scholarship to study sustainable diets and food systems in Pacific Island countries.

The ecosystems and agro-ecological zones of Pacific Island countries are rich in terrestrial and marine biodiversity that would support sustainable diets for the populations. Yet the nearly-11 million people in these countries have the highest rates in the world of obesity and diabetes, and other diet-related chronic diseases. Their diets are often dominated by high fat/high sugar imported convenience foods, and agricultural exploitation is leading to extensive loss of agro-biodiversity and degradation of land.  Many of these Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are precarious in terms of their vulnerabilities to various manifestations of climate change, and other anthropogenic and natural phenomena.

Various research groups have worked on the development of methods, metrics and indicators to characterise sustainable diets and food systems. These remain largely theoretical, and to date have not been widely applied in order to further develop, validate or use them as tools.  The aim of this project is to investigate three methodological frameworks (see references) which address sustainable diets and food systems, and to develop, validate, customise and apply as a tool to the unique ecosystems of Pacific Island countries. The processes employed will include transdisciplinary project design and execution, and multi-sectoral involvement for policy ramifications and development.  

The outcomes will have application to national and regional policies and interventions and to intergovernmental commitments including the Sustainable Development Goals, Aichi Targets, the International Treaty on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, and more. It will addresses the issues elaborated in December 2015 by the UN General Assembly (A/70/472/Add.2 - paragraph 11) in the Small Island Developing States Partnership (SIDS) Framework, in accordance with paragraph 101 of the SAMOA Pathway, to monitor and ensure the full implementation of pledges and commitments through partnerships for SIDS. This project will also contribute to the action-oriented, results-focused Global Multi-stakeholder SIDS Partnership Dialogue, and will directly and indirectly address each of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (2015) and the commitment of the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States (2014). Ultimately, the goal is to realise tangible, long-lasting benefits for nutrition and food security, public health, and for environmental sustainability, e.g., conservation of food biodiversity through sustainable use.

Research will be supervised by Professor Barbara Burlingame. The scholarship covers all tuition fees for international and domestic students and includes a tax-free stipend of NZ$25,000 p.a.

Applicants should have or expect to receive a BSc(Hons) or MSc degree or equivalent in nutrition, health science, public health, epidemiology, or related field; coursework or project work in diet/health-related sustainable development, food composition/consumption studies, environmental toxicology/exposure assessments is highly desirable. Scholarship regulations  should be reviewed prior to applying.

Applications close September 5. Starting date to be determined. Applications including a CV, academic transcript, and letter of motivation should be sent by email to Professor Burlingame, b.burlingame@massey.ac.nz

PhD Scholarship – Coccidiosis in kiwi

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.
