Masters Scholarship
We have a Master’s scholarship (Tuition fees @ NZ$8000 for two years, funded by the Centre for Service and Working Dog Health) for a student with an undergraduate degree in Engineering, Computer Science or Physics and with a good knowledge of programming in either C++ or Java. We are beginning a program of research into modelling the structure and function of the canine spine. German Shepherd dogs are used by the police and military around the world for search and rescue, and other functions, and there is considerable wastage when they break down in training or service. We aim to develop a 3D mathematical model of the German Shepherd lumbosacral spine from CT images and soft tissue dissections to import to a modelling program. This will allow us to manipulate the hard and soft tissue features of the spine and evaluate the effects of varying hard and soft tissue conformations on the forces and moments around the motion segment centres. The Master’s project is to develop the preliminary working model of the lumbosacral spine, complete with the spinal elements and soft tissue influences (muscles and ligaments). The student will be working with a commercial software package (AnyBody) for musculoskeletal modelling and will need to be proficient at reverse-engineering existing code for the specific morphometric application, to customise the model.

Nested Food Emulsions: Structure, Digestion and Applications

A PhD scholarship is available at the Riddet Institute, New Zealand’s national Centre of Research Excellence in Food and Nutrition hosted at Massey University. The Institute brings together researchers at three Universities and two government research organisations, and has strong collaborative ties with research groups in North America, Europe and Asia.

The Project: Our Food Science team recently developed a new class of food-grade emulsions, in which the emulsifying agent is a protein-stabilised nanoemulsion. This ‘nested’ structure is a type of Pickering emulsion consisting of a core lipid droplet surrounded by protein-coated nanodroplets. These emulsions have strong potential for simultaneously delivering food science functionality (e.g. inhibiting oxidation) and nutritional functionality (e.g. targeted delivery of bioactives) in health-promoting foods.

This PhD project aims to build a mechanistic understanding of how nested emulsions are digested in the human body. That knowledge will underpin the rational design of nested food emulsions to deliver bioactives to the gastrointestinal tract in a targeted way. You will work with senior scientists leading the field of food digestion research, from both the Food Science team and the Nutrition team.

You will be based at the Palmerston North campus of Massey University, with on-site access to a wide range of analytical equipment and expertise. You will use advanced analytical techniques to characterise nested emulsions during digestion in vitro and in vivo, and you will measure the physiological impact of an emulsion-based beverage. Laboratory techniques will include confocal and electron microscopy, tensiometry and nuclear magnetic resonance, and you will be organising animal and human trials.

Eligibility: To be eligible, students must fulfil all conditions for admission to the Massey University Doctoral Programme. Academic and English language requirements can be found here.

Selection criteria:  We’re looking for someone who
• has an outstanding academic record

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.

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.

Masters Programmes from the International Hellenic University: In response to the need for competent specialists in the fields of technology and culture and recognising their critical role in the new economy, the International Hellenic University (IHU) designed two specialist postgraduate programmes, starting with the next enrolment being October 2011: the Master of Science in Energy Systems and the Master of Science in Information and Communication Technology Systems, offered by the School of Science and Technology.

These new postgraduate programmes, taught entirely in English, are expected to make a significant contribution to meeting educational and training needs and social and economic requirements in the wider region of Southeast Europe. The programmes are designed to provide prospective students with novel and competitive skills for the current job market, as well as innovative research opportunities.

The main focus of the programmes is to provide students specialist training, according to their scientific and professional interests. In the first semester of the 12-month programme, students take the core courses considered essential for their area of study. In the second semester, students choose a more specific area of specialisation and can select courses from a range of subjects available for their chosen area of specialisation. During the third semester, students undertake their masters project/dissertation under the supervision of a member of the university’s academic staff on a subject chosen in cooperation with the supervisor.

The teaching staff on the postgraduate programmes comprises academics of international repute from universities in Greece and abroad.

Further information on the programmes of study is available on the website the school ( http://www.tech.ihu.edu.gr/). Prospective candidates can also take the opportunity to attend one of the respective information events organised by the university. They are also welcome to visit the university, booking an appointment in advance. The university teaching facilities are located at the 14th km Thessaloniki-Nea Moudania Road (Thermi Bridge).
The application process is now open for the next academic year, 2011-2012. Applicants receive an answer within ten (10) working days of the university receiving their complete application. Applications are considered on a rolling basis throughout the year until places are filled.

The IHU offers a number of scholarships based on a combination of objective criteria including academic excellence, past experience, and financial need.

About IHU
The International Hellenic University ( www.ihu.edu.gr ) was founded in 2005 (Law 3391) and is the first state university in Greece to offer programmes of study exclusively in English. Three Schools are currently in operation: the School of Economics and Management, the School of Humanities and the School of Science and Technology. The School of Economics and Management already offers three postgraduate programmes of study: the Executive MBA, the MSc in Management, and the MSc in Banking - Finance.

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.
