The Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand, is looking for self-motivated and self-directed individuals for a 3.5-year PhD position that contributes to a CRC program that develops methods for measuring the depositional footprint of offshore aquaculture (Environment and Ecosystems Program: Project 4.20.004).


Fisheries in deeper and more dynamic waters are argued to lessen the impact of organic farm wastes on bottom ecosystem functions by increasing horizontal dispersion of farm wastes in deeper and more dynamic seas. However, if we are able to quantify this benefit, we will be able to get the social go-ahead for this expansion. Agricultural waste disposed of in deep offshore waters is expected to have a deeper and more lasting imprint on the ecosystem than garbage disposed of near shore. Benthic faunal communities, in particular their influence on the sediment–seawater solute exchange—a mechanism that links benthic and pelagic ecosystem functions—can be altered by fish waste deposition, depending on the features of the receiving seafloor ecosystem. Benthic invertebrate communities have an impact on the sediment–seawater exchange of dissolved nitrogen and phosphorus, which the PhD student will investigate through a series of laboratory studies. You’ll have a degree in marine ecology, biological oceanography, aquatic microbiology, or a closely related discipline from an accredited college or university. We’re always looking for people with benthic invertebrate taxonomic identification experience and sediment biogeochemistry expertise. Candidate qualifications should include the ability to effectively communicate, as well as the ability to write clearly and independently in a variety of scientific fields. Researchers from CSIRO, the University of Tasmania, and Griffith University will join Associate Professor Kay C. Vopel’s team, which will work on a worldwide initiative.


About Scholarship Provider

The Auckland Institution of Technology, sometimes known as AUT, is a university of research and higher education that is open to the public in New Zealand. It was founded in the year 2000. Evening classes are offered to students at what was originally known as Auckland Technical School when the institution first opened its doors in the year 1895.

In the year 2000, the name of the university was changed to more accurately represent its evolving role as a research institution. It is a member of the Association of Asia Pacific Business Schools (AAPBS), as well as other organizations such as the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the Consejo Latinoamericano de Escuelas de Administracion (CLAEA).
