The NIWA / University of Waikato Te Waiora Joint Institute for Freshwater Management is looking for keen and enquiring graduates to be part of the next-generation of freshwater scientists and water managers.

Funding for three PhD projects ($40K/yr. for 3 yrs.) and four Masters projects ($27.5K for one year) is being offered.

The successful applicants will undertake graduate research under the combined guidance of researchers from NIWA and the University of Waikato.

These funded graduate opportunities are an important part of the Institute’s work in fostering the development of future leaders in freshwater management and exploring new freshwater research directions.

As well as running this graduate programme, the Institute undertakes applied, interdisciplinary freshwater research. It leverages the combined capabilities and facilities of NIWA and the University of Waikato.
