PhD Studentship
The University of Auckland

Department of Mathematics

Closing date: 22nd February 2016

A PhD studentship is available in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Auckland, for work on a project in dynamical systems and mathematical physiology. The project aims to identify the physiological mechanisms that underlie the long-period calcium oscillations and waves seen in experiments on pancreatic and parotid acinar cells, and involves the researchers James Sneyd, Hinke Osinga, and Vivien Kirk at the University of Auckland, and Martin Wechselberger at the University of Sydney.

A good background in dynamical systems and scientific programming is desirable, as is an interest in mathematical physiology.

Stipend is NZ$27,500 pa (tax free) for three years plus tuition fees. Interested candidates should send an email expressing their interest, along with a CV and academic record, to Vivien Kirk at
