Massey University PhD Scholarship in Mathematics

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.

Massey University Institute of Food, Nutrition and Human Health (Albany)

We are looking for a suitable candidate for a Masters Project 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: 43652; 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.  

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.
