Two PhD studentships are available in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Auckland, for work on a project in the general field of calcium dynamics. Successful applicants will have have an Honours or Masters degree in some area of quantitative science (such as Mathematics, Physics or Engineering) and will have a demonstrated interest in applications of mathematical techniques to real-world problems and data, particularly those arising in medicine, physiology or biology. A good background in dynamical systems and scientific programming is desirable. Successful applicants will work with the researchers James Sneyd, Vivien Kirk and Marie Graff at the University of Auckland, and Martin Wechselberger at the University of Sydney.
The positions will be available starting in March 2021, and come with funding that will cover tuition fees and an annual stipend of $27,500 NZD for three years.
Interested candidates should send their cv, a copy of their academic record, and a brief statement of why they are interested in the position, to James Sneyd, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or to Vivien Kirk, at email@example.com. There is no formal closing date for applications, but those received by January 15th will receive priority.
