Cutting edge science – real world applications
The Robinson Research Institute is internationally recognised for the impact of our applied research into superconductivity and electromagnetic technologies. Our world-leading programmes in materials and engineering deliver globally sought-after graduates and transform tomorrow’s industries. Located in Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand, we are looking for Research Engineers and PhD students to be part of our close-knit team.
The Institute is currently developing: superconducting generators for electric aircraft, superconducting transformers, medical imaging devices, specialist scientific magnets, magnetic materials, magnetic sensors and magnetic memory.
We are looking for engineers to support our cross disciplinary work in superconducting and electromagnetic devices. Engineers with electrical, electronic or mechanical backgrounds with an interest in broadening their skills are welcome to apply. We will consider applicants at all levels of experience. For those with particularly accomplished careers it is possible for the institute to support appointments at the Professorial level. Enquiries should be directed to the Institute Director Nick.Long@vuw.ac.nz.
We have a number of current PhD studentships available including:
• Computer Modelling of Advanced Timing Devices
• Fibre optic sensing
• Advanced Quartz Resonator Technologies
• Characterization of short circuit behaviour of distribution transformers
• Thin film magnetic sensor development
PhD Requirements: Suitable candidates will hold (or be predicted to obtain) a first class honours or Master’s degree in Physics or Engineering. International candidates must meet the University’s entry requirements for English language proficiency.
Fully-funded scholarships are offered for outstanding international and domestic candidates. More information can be found at https://www.victoria.ac.nz/robinson/students/postgraduate-study or email us at email@example.com
