    New Immigration NZ policies

    New Immigration NZ policies

    In May 2009, Immigration New Zealand (INZ) made important changes to its immigration policy that prospective migrants should be aware of when applying for a visa.

    A summary of current changes is provided below:

    Licensed immigration advisors
    INZ has changed all application forms to include a declaration part for applicants to confirm whether or not they have received advice from a licensed immigration advisor or an individual who is exempt from the licensing regulations (e.g. an immigration lawyer).

    Since 4 May 2009, only a licensed immigration advisor or an exempt individual, such as an immigration lawyer, can provide advice and submit applications to Immigration New Zealand on behalf of an applicant in New Zealand.

    Immigration consultants operating overseas are still able to lodge applications until 4 May 2010, although in practice a number of immigration advisors have obtained licenses whether operating in New Zealand or overseas.

    It is recommended that any individual who is instructing a person to assist in the migration process should confirm that the person is a professional immigration lawyer or a licensed immigration advisor.

    The length of permitted stay on temporary permits
    A minor change has been made to temporary entry policy to confirm that an applicant can stay in New Zealand for no more than nine months on a visitor permit in any 18 month period.

    Other applications for visitor permits outside generic temporary entry policy are not included in this assessment (including the parental multiple entry visitor visa). This clarification and amendment of policy was required to ensure consistency in INZ decision making.

    Parental multiple entry visitor visa
    Policy has been clarified to confirm that a second parental multiple entry visitor visa can only be submitted and approved by Immigration New Zealand after the expiry of the first three year multiple visa.

    Sound planning, therefore, should be undertaken in terms of parents of New Zealand citizens/residents traveling to New Zealand under this visa scheme if the parents will not be eligible for New Zealand residence under the family residence criteria prior to the expiry of the initial three year multiple entry visa.

    Declarations – sponsorship
    A new section of policy has been introduced to New Zealand residence applications lodged under the Family (Partnership) Category.

    In the event that the sponsoring partner did not disclose their partnership in a previous application for New Zealand residence, as long as it can be proved that there was no intention to mislead at the time the sponsor’s application was made, and the failed declaration would not have lead to a decision to decline the application, then INZ will accept sponsorship of a partner in a subsequent application who was not disclosed in the sponsors previous application.

    Changes to qualification bonus point requirement under the Long Term Skill Shortage List
    Immigration New Zealand has also made changes to the requirements for the claim of bonus points for Master’s Degree and PHD qualifications in an area of absolute skill shortage under the Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) policy in June 2009.

    Prior to the changes, individuals who hold a Master’s Degree or PHD could claim 10 bonus points for holding a qualification in an area of absolute skill shortage and, therefore, hold a distinct advantage if they do not hold an offer of employment by being selected from the SMC pool, as well as moving forward through the further assessment process for the grant of residency (applicants who hold a qualification in an area of absolute skill shortage without a job offer will be taken in preference to individuals who do not).

    This is a very important policy change for individuals who hold a Master’s Degree or PHD without a full time offer of employment. INZ are taking away the ability of a Master’s or PHD holder to advance themselves through the SMC pool if they are not university lecturers.

    Amendments and alterations to the Long Term Skill Shortage List
    On 2 March 2009, INZ introduced various changed to the government’s immigration policy. One of the main changes was made to the Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL), which has been updated with the addition of three new occupations and slight changes to two occupations already on the list.

    New occupations on the LTSSL
    Three occupations experiencing skill shortage in New Zealand have been added to the LTSSL. Migrants with experience in these fields now have a greater advantage, and are in a better position, to obtain New Zealand residency.

    Architect
    Ambulance paramedic (advanced life support)
    Ambulance paramedic (intermediate life support)
    Changes to existing LTSSL occupations
    Minor changes have also been made to the requirements allowing applicants to claim bonus points for holding a qualification in an area of absolute skill shortage under the Skilled Migrant Category for a multi media designer (film animator) and chef type roles in the LTSSL.

    Individuals intending to migrate to New Zealand who are qualified to obtain a full time offer of employment as a multi media designer or a chef should consult the LTSSL to view the amendments made and determine whether or not the changes shift their position and potential eligibility.

    Amendments to the parent policy
    Changes have been made to the minimum income requirement for New Zealand residents who wish to sponsor their parents (or parents-in-law) for New Zealand residency under the Family (Parent) Category once they have resided in New Zealand as New Zealand residents for a period of three years.

    The policy has been clarified to confirm that sponsors (and/or their partners) must meet the minimum income requirement from personal income only. The minimum income requirement for a couple to sponsor parents’ residence application is currently $29,897.92 per annum (before tax).

    This income must be personal income to the main applicant and/or their partner and be obtained from sustained paid employment, regular self employment or regular investment income. Income earned by the sponsor or their partner from legal entities such as businesses or trusts cannot be included in the income calculation unless the income received by the sponsor and/or their partner is in the form of wages or drawings.

    AUSTRALIA versus NEW ZEALAND ....big changes give New Zealand the edge

    AUSTRALIA versus NEW ZEALAND ....big changes give New Zealand the edge.
    Posted on 9 October 2009
    Australian cricket may be celebrating after their recent victory over New Zealand in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy, but as far as immigration goes, New Zealand is now a clear leader.

    The Australian Immigration authorities’ recently announced unexpected changes to the skilled migration program. Most affected are those that have secured sponsorship from a State or Territory Government for one of the skilled visas, but who do not have an occupation on the Critical Skills List. These migrants could reasonably have anticipated relatively speedy processing of their skilled visa application, but now they appear to have been relegated well down the list of priorities and early indications are that they will not see their applications finalised before the end of 2012.

    By way of contrast, Immigration New Zealand have reduced the pass mark for Skilled Migration to just 110 points. In July the pass mark stood at 140 points, so the reduction is significant and means many more migrants can now achieve a residence visa without needing a job offer. You could be enjoying life in New Zealand within a few months. However, for those in less of a hurry to leave, eligible migrants will have up to 3 years to emigrate, meaning you can move at your leisure. Equally important is the fact that with your residence visa already secured, it will be far easier to find the right job.

    As a result of the above, we are already receiving enquiries from people who believe they should now prioritise New Zealand as their preferred destination. They want the reassurance of knowing their residence visa can be secured quickly, thus protecting their future.

    If you want to know how you are affected by these changes and to fully review your options, please call us today on 0845 230 4390 to speak with one of our migration experts.

    Hi Dinh,

    Nicola asked me to give you her e-mail address in case you knew any good students who were interested in doing a PhD in computational/quantum chemistry in New Zealand. Her e-mail address is n.gaston@irl.cri.nz

    If you know someone who might be interested, and has the right background, tell them to email Nicola and ask her for more information. I think she still has funding for two more positions.

    Cheers,

    PhD Scholarships - Victoria University of Wellington

    PhD Scholarships - Victoria University of Wellington

    *History or background of award*
    For the purpose of encouraging postgraduate research, one objective being to build up strong research schools at the University, Victoria offers PhD scholarships to support doctoral studies. These scholarships are awarded on academic merit and are open to New Zealand and international students in any discipline.

    *Purpose of award*
    These Scholarships are intended to encourage doctoral study at Victoria University of Wellington.

    *Selection criteria*
    The Scholarships are open to graduates of any university within or outside of New Zealand who intend to enrol either for PhD or who have started their PhD study within one year of application.

    Applicants with Victoria University 'offers of study' of who are current Victoria University PhD students must apply on the application form available from the link at the top of this webpage.

    Please note: from 1 January 2010 there are changes to both the process for applying for PhD study at Victoria and applying for a Victoria PhD Scholarship. How these changes affect you is outlined below.

    From 1 January 2010, for new PhD applicants there will be one application process for admission to the PhD programme and University and for PhD scholarships. The combined application form will be available from late 2009 on the Faculty of Graduate Research Website
    PhD Funding


    Please note: Although applications will be considered from students seeking scholarship support for a PhD degree for which they are already enrolled at Victoria, if you have applied for a Victoria PhD scholarship in the past, you must provide updated or additional information to apply for a second round. Such applications must be accompanied by clear support from supervisors.

    *Number of awards offered*
    30+ each round

    *Value*
    $21,000 stipend annually plus tuition fees. Alternative funding options may be offered.

    *Tenure of award*
    Scholarships will normally be tenable for three years. For a student who has already been enrolled for a PhD at Victoria for more than three months at the time when the offer of a Scholarship is made, the maximum length of tenure of the Scholarship will be reduced at the discretion of the Scholarships Committee.

    *Closing dates for applications*
    Monday 01 March 2010
    Thursday 01 July 2010
    and 01 November 2010

    *How do students apply?*
    Application forms for new PhD students are available from the Faculty of Graduate Research Website. Application forms for current PhD students or those with an 'offer of study' are available from the links above. Scholarship regulations covering both groups of applicants are also available from the links above.

    *Decision makers*
    The University Scholarships Committee, a sub-committee of the University Research Council

    *How and when do students learn of the decision?*
    Offers of Victoria Phd Scholarships will be made approximately six weeks after each closing date in March, July and November of the year of application. Because some applicants may in the event decline the offer of a Scholarship with the result that further offers have to be made, it is possible that some applicants will not be finally notified of the success or otherwise of their applications three months after application. If you are unsuccessful you will be notified of this and if you are on the researve list by email in the first instance. Please provide a clear and correct
    email address.

    *What conditions are attached to acceptance of this award?*
    Scholarship recipients shall be required to devote themselves full-time to their programme of research during the tenure of the scholarship and may not hold a position of emolument without the approval of the University Scholarships Committee. Approval may be given for scholarship recipients to undertake paid employment (usually tutoring) for up to a maximum of 600 hours in any one calendar year. All requests to undertake part-time employment must be supported in writing by the supervisor. Once the period of tenure of a scholarship has commenced, the University
    Scholarships Committee may, at its sole discretion, grant a scholarship recipient a deferment of their scholarship for a period not exceeding one year. In most cases such a deferment will coincide with a formal suspension from their PhD enrolment.

    A scholarship shall be terminated if a scholarship recipient ceases to resume the aforesaid programme of research within one month of the last day of the period of the deferment.

    If an award is made to an existing PhD candidate the tenure of the award will be reduced.

    *Additional information*
    Several types of Victoria PhD Scholarship may be offered. Most successful applicants will be offered a Victoria PhD Scholarship which provide an annual stipend of NZ$21,000 plus tuition fees. However, a small number of Vice Chancellor's Scholarships will be offered to the top applicants each round. These provide an annual stipend of $24,000 plus tuition fees. A number of Victoria Doctoral Assistantships are also offered each round. These consist of an annual stipend $15,000 plus tuition fees and an emploment component of $5,000.

    Applicants, other than those who have completed all of their study at Victoria, must include a certified copy of their academic record from other institutions with this application. Applicants whose degree has been conferred at any university other than a New Zealand University will be considered in two categories:

    Category 1 - applicants from the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Germany or Australia must supply an original or certified copy of their university transcript.

    Category 2 - applicants from any other country must have their transcript verified and assessed with a course by course evaluation by one of the below educational evaluators:

    NZDS for Vietnam - The New Zealand Development Scholarships 2010/2011

    Overview

    The New Zealand Development Scholarships (NZDS) scheme offers the opportunity to people from developing countries, including citizens of Viet Nam, to undertake development-related studies at tertiary education institutions in New Zealand.

    By providing people with knowledge and skills to contribute to the sustainable development of key sectors in their home country, the NZDS scheme aims to reduce poverty, promote good governance, and contribute to the human resource base of targeted countries. NZAID capacity building addresses government priorities and complements the work done in country by bilateral and multilateral agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGO).

    Type, level and number of scholarships

    There are two categories of NZDS:

    New Zealand Development Scholarship – Public category (NZDS-Public): This category targets employees working in key public institutions in Viet Nam to support the sustainable development of Viet Nam. Candidates in this category must be nominated by their institution for a NZDS scholarship. Applications must be submitted through the Personnel Department of their institution.

    Priority will be given to the following key public institutions: Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Ministry of Education and Training and the People’s Committees of Binh Dinh and Gia Lai provinces. Applications will also be considered from tertiary institutions cooperating with the Viet Nam – New Zealand initiative for English language teaching and from government agencies involved in projects funded by NZAID. In addition, employees of the Ministry of Planning and Investment, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Science and Technology, Vietnam Women’s Union, Ho Chi Minh National Political Academy, and the Office of the National Assembly may apply.


    New Zealand Development Scholarship – Open category (NZDS-Open): This category provides scholarship opportunities for applicants strongly committed to driving Vietnam’s development, who work in the private sector, civil society, tertiary institutions and other public institutions not eligible for the NZDS-Public category. Applicants apply directly to a New Zealand education institution.Within the New Zealand bilateral assistance programme for Viet Nam, the following scholarships will be offered to eligible candidates from Viet Nam for study beginning in the 2011 academic year:

    • seventeen (17) NZDS-Public scholarships for study under the identified priority sectors (below), of which up to 7 NZDS-Public scholarships will be targeted for study in pedagogical methods for the teaching of English language;
    • three (3) NZDS-Open scholarships for study under the identified priority sectors (below).

    New Zealand Development Scholarships will be awarded for full-time postgraduate level study (i.e. Postgraduate Diplomas, Masters degrees or Doctorates (PhD)) in New Zealand.

    Priority sectors

    In line with the Viet Nam Country Strategy, scholarships will be awarded for study linked to the priority sectors of sustainable rural livelihoods, education and governance.

    Sustainable Rural Livelihoods – study related to a range of rural development initiatives, for example:

    • Veterinary science and veterinary epidemiology
    • Plant health including plant protection, pathology, entomology, taxonomy and mycology
    • Agribusiness and agricultural economics including supply chain management, value chain analysis and marketing
    • Agricultural and horticultural science
    • Environmental studies and natural resources management including climate change
    • Food safety and food quality
    • Tourism management and eco-tourism
    • Land Reform, Land Tenure and Land Administration

    Education – study should focus on basic education, such as:

    • Early childhood education
    • Bilingual or mother-tongue education
    • Education administration and management
    • Linguistics, particularly pedagogical methods for the teaching of English language
    Governance
    • Public administration, public policy and public sector management

    While priority will be given to the above sectors, applications may also be considered for studies related to other areas of NZAID’s development cooperation with Viet Nam, including public health, land administration, gender equality and women’s empowerment, and human rights.

    Eligibility criteria

    Applicants must meet the following NZDS eligibility criteria before their application will be considered further against the selection criteria, including any criteria specific to Viet Nam (listed on page 3). Applicants must:

    • be a citizen of Viet Nam (i.e. permanent residents are not eligible to apply);
    • be residing in Viet Nam, preferably for at least two years prior to application;
    • not have citizenship or permanent residence status of New Zealand, Australia or another developed country1;
    • not be married or engaged to be married to a person who holds, or who is eligible to hold, citizenship or permanent residence status of New Zealand, Australia or another developed country;
    • be applying to commence a new qualification and not be seeking funding for a qualification already commenced in New Zealand or another country outside Viet Nam;
    • not have completed, or nearly completed, a qualification at a similar level (i.e. applicants must apply for a higher level qualification than any previously attained), unless strong developmental relevance is demonstrated;

    • satisfy the admission requirements of the New Zealand education institution at which the qualification is to be undertaken, including English language proficiency criteria;
    • have been working in their home country for at least 24 months immediately prior to application;
    • be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to Viet Nam’s public, private or community sector (as relevant), and to the development of Viet Nam in general; and
    • be able to take up the scholarship in the academic year for which it is offered.

    Viet Nam specific criteria

    In addition to meeting the criteria above, applicants from Viet Nam must:

    • be under 45 years of age at the time of application;
    • hold a recognised Bachelors degree, of strong academic merit, in general relevant to the proposed postgraduate qualification (Note: NZAID gives preference to candidates who do not already hold a degree from an industrialised country); and;
    • NZDS-Public applicants must have a minimum three years work experience with the Government of Viet Nam and be currently employed by the Government of Viet Nam;
    Officials from government agencies involved in NZAID projects are encouraged to apply.

    NZDS-Public application process

    Applicants are encouraged to download the application form at Viet Nam | NZEmbassy.com (Development Cooperation > New Zealand Development Scholarships). Application forms are also available from the NZAID, New Zealand Embassy in Ha Noi, Foreign Economic Relations Department of the Ministry of Planning and Investment (FERD/MPI) and the Personnel Department of the nominating ministries/agencies.

    Completed NZDS applications must be submitted to the Personnel Department of the candidate’s own Ministry or institution for endorsement and are then sent to the New Zealand Embassy, with a copy to FERD/MPI, by 15 May 2010.

    All applications must be completed in English, with certified true copies of official English translations (where the original document is not in English) attached to the application form.

    Học bổng hoặc trường liên quan đến NZ thường phải qua 1 tổ chức ECE tính điểm, thật là phiền phức[-(. Cũng vì cái này mà mình o đủ thời gian để apply cho 1 trường bên đó.
    Bác nào có kinh nghiệm thì share luôn cho a e về phương pháp này:|.

    Có 1 ít kinh nghiệm

    Hôm nay ngồi đọc lại các message ở Facebook mới phát hiện ra mình còn nợ ông bạn ĐCB vụ này. Đã hứa với Bằng (từ 2009) là sẽ chia sẻ 1 chút kinh nghiệm ở NZ, nhưng vì nhiều lý do nên giờ mới có cơ hội để chia sẻ được.

    Tôi sang NZ ko phải để học mà là đi làm nên chỉ có thể chia sẻ một chút về cuộc sống và công việc ở đây thôi.

    Tôi viết văn không tốt nên chỉ tóm tắt đủ thông tin cho như sau:

    Nơi ở: Palmerston North, là 1 thành phố nhỏ, được gọi là thành phố sinh viên vì nguồn thu nhập chính là từ các trường ĐH. Ở đây có trường Massey (2 campus) và IPC

    Nhà ở: Nếu thuê căn hộ riêng biệt (1 phòng ngủ) thì giá trung bình khoảng 150NZD/tuần. Có giá thấp hơn, 130 hoặc 140 nhưng rất ít.

    Đồ đạc: có thể lên TradeMe để mua đồ cũ, ví dụ TV Sony 29" + cabinet giá 50NZD

    Tài chính: Khi sang đầu tiên nên mở tài khoản ngân hàng, nên có thẻ tín dụng từ VN mang sang vì ở đây ngân hàng thường cần 2 loại giấy tờ (passport + credit card). Sau đó các giấy tờ khác bạn làm ở đây cũng sẽ cần 2 loại ví dụ passport + bank statement. Các loại giấy tờ nên làm IRD để đi làm.


    Công việc: PN là 1 thành phố nhỏ nên có ít việc, các kênh có thể kiếm việc được là qua agent như Student Job Search, Sterling, Addeco. Cover Staff... hoặc Work and Income của city council. Nếu bạn có xe thì khả năng kiếm được việc sẽ cao hơn. Nếu bạn biết về xe có thể mua xe chạy được với giá ~ 2000. Bằng lái từ VN sang nên dịch công chứng và có thể dùng được 1 năm.

    Thực phẩm: Có chợ trời họp vào thứ 7 ở Albert st và CN ở .... (quên mất tên phố) Chợ trời nhiều rau quả phù hợp với người Việt. Tôi hay đi siêu thi ở Pak n Save trên đường Ferguson từ thứ 2 - 5 để săn hàng giảm giá. Thịt ở MadButcher tuần nào cũng có special price

    Em bé: Nếu bạn có gia đình bạn có thể cho em bé sang học, dưới 5 tuổi có 20h miễn phí/tuần.


    He he, tạm thời mới nghĩ được thế. Có ai cần thêm thông tin gì thì tôi sẽ cố gắng cung cấp theo khả năng.

    Bác xedap ơi,

    Em có ông giáo thân khuyên em nên đi học ở NZ. Em học Thực vật-Nông nghiệp-Bảo tồn, nhân lên đây thấy bác, bác cho em hỏi mấy điều:

    - Ở NZ có bảng xếp hạng trường theo ngành không ạ? Nếu có bác share cho em với. Nếu không, bác hỏi giúp em người nào quen thuộc ở đó xem ngành học của em thì nên theo trường nào (em học MSc hoặc PhD ạ)
    - Cơ hội học bổng thì thế nào hả bác? Các trường họ có cho học bổng không hay chỉ nên trông chờ vào học bổng chính phủ thôi ạ (học bổng chính phủ phải có 2 năm exp mà bắt em đi làm rồi mới đi học thì em ngại học lắm :|)

    Cảm ơn bác trước ạ

    Đi ngang qua, thấy có bạn hỏi về học bổng ở NZ.

    Thật sự, ở NZ có rất nhiều học bổng như Anh, Úc.

    Nếu hồ sơ bạn tốt, xin trực tiếp hb trường thường là 20,000NZ/năm + tuition fees. Các trường tốt của NZ như Auckland, Otago (theo ranking thì là số 1 và số 2, Otago là trường được xếp vào vào hạng cao cho research, còn Auckland thì ranking khá cao) có cho rất nhiều, nhưng cảm giác là khó cho international students.

    Nếu không thì lên trên scholarship của thế giới, gõ NZ scholarship ra một loạt các project liên quan đến ngành mình, bạn xem yêu cầu của họ rồi gởi hồ sơ, họ sẽ mời phỏng vấn (nếu hồ sơ qua vòng gởi xe của họ:|). Thành công thì hb này rất cao 25,000NZ/+ đủ thứ/năm. Nói chung, hb project thì nhiều lắm. Đối với hb này bạn sẽ làm việc với một nhóm (phần lớn là người của project).

    Nhưng ngành bạn ở trên thì khả năng xin NZaid là rất lớn.
    Chúc bạn thành công.

    Department of Economics

    The Department of Economics of the University of Otago in New Zealand is expanding its PhD programme and invites applications for Ph.D. Studentships (Scholarships). Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit. Please note that in order to be considered for a scholarship, the absolute minimum required is an “A-” grade average, aside from other academic achievements. The University of Otago is New Zealand’s leading research university. In the most recent national research evaluation exercise (PBRF) – equivalent to the British RAE and the Australian ERA – Otago was ranked first in Economics and first overall.

    Applications are considered throughout the year.

    Each Scholarship will pay university tuition fees and in addition a living allowance of NZ $20,000 per annum for up to three years, for a total of NZ $60.000. Additional income from research assistance and/or tutoring may be available.

    Information on the relative cost of living in New Zealand is available at New Zealand Immigration Error Page

    The normal period of study is three years. Applicants should have completed at least four years of university study in Economics, and hold an Honours or Masters degree, with excellent grades, which includes a research component. The PhD programme at Otago is by research only, that is, it does not include any course work. We expect that you will have taken courses equivalent to our own honours programme, which includes advanced courses in micro- and macroeconomic theory and in econometrics. The fact that the Otago PhD does not include course work means that you need to have obtained the skills (either theoretical, empirical or both) required for your proposed research before coming to Otago. In addition, it is assumed that you have good written English skills.

    If you would like feedback on whether you may qualify for a scholarship, please email a CV, copies of your academic transcripts, showing the courses you have taken and the grades you obtained, plus a 2 to 3 page research proposal, that clearly sets out the hypothesis you wish to test, the methodology you will use to test the hypothesis, and how your research will extend the existing literature to:

    PhD Studentships (2)
    Packaging Development for the Kiwifruit Industry

    The export of New Zealand kiwifruit is valued in excess of NZ$1 billion per annum, and is the most important fresh produce industry in the country. A key component of the success of this industry is the development of a strong brand presence (Zespri™), which amongst many things, aims to differentiate New Zealand kiwifruit as of superior quality to that of the competitors. In order to deliver this superior quality consistently, design, control, monitoring, and manipulation of the environmental conditions during the storage and transport phases of the kiwifruit supply chain play a pivotal role. It is well known that temperature, moisture content (humidity), oxygen, carbon dioxide and ethylene composition immediately adjacent to the fruit all influence fruit physiology and subsequently deterioration during storage. The packaging of the kiwifruit within the supply chain acts as a barrier between the immediately adjacent and external environmental conditions and as such play as important role in regulating the conditions experienced by the kiwifruit. As an object of design, packaging development provides an opportunity to potentially assist in the control, monitoring and manipulation of the kiwifruit conditions in the supply chain and ultimately the delivered fruit quality.

    Massey University’s Centre for Postharvest and Refrigeration Research seeks candidates for two PhD studentships fully funded by Zespri International Ltd. that aim to contribute to the knowledge of how the packaging systems used in the kiwifruit industry can contribute to consistently superior quality outcomes. Massey University has a substantial history of providing fruit physiology and engineering research to New Zealands fresh produce sector. The successful candidates will join a group of 3 researchers and 11 postgraduate students working in the postharvest arena. While linked, each of these projects assesses separate issues and requires and develops different skills in the successful candidate. Both have funding for student stipend ($26,500/annum tax free + university fees) and include a required period of 6-9 months study at a collaborative university (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven) in Belgium.

    In order to be eligible applicants must:
    • hold an appropriate prerequisite degree(s).
    • meet the eligibility requirements for PhD study at Massey University.
    • maintain the progress and behaviour expected of a PhD candidate.
    Interested candidates that are currently completing a degree, and will be able to begin the project prior to the completion of 2011 can apply.

    Project A: Volatile flux patterns in kiwifruit packaging systems

    During storage, fruit produce emit and adsorb volatile components (such as ethylene and methanol) that may induce fruit responses and/or be used as signals by sophisticated sensors to determine fruit status. While the flux of carbon dioxide, oxygen and water within some fruit (in particular pears and apples) and its immediate environment is a well established field of postharvest science, the flux of ethylene and other volatile compounds within commercial fruit packaging systems is still poorly understood. In particular, there is a substantial lack of information with respect to volatile production rates from fruit and their dependency on the fruit status (temperature, maturity, rots, and damage), volatile adsorption rates (by both fruit and packaging materials) and transfer of volatiles through packaging (polyliner, cardboard and wooden) materials. This PhD project, aims at establishing the flux of ethylene and other important volatiles within commercial kiwifruit packaging systems, and the subsequent establishment of a predictive model of the volatile compositions within a commercial package as a function of fruit status (temperature, maturity, rots and damage). The model outcome will aid understanding of the parameters which influence the magnitude and variability of volatile movement and accumulation within a package, and as such be a useful tool for managing in package ethylene and other volatile concentrations, and designing/interpreting sensor based systems that target the measurement of such volatiles. Suitable candidates for this project may come from plant physiology, horticulture, transfer process modelling or process engineering backgrounds. Candidates interested in this project are requested to write a 1 page essay on “Gas movement in food packaging systems”.


    Project B: Model based design of kiwifruit packaging

    Because of their effect on the environmental conditions immediately adjacent to the fruit, the operating conditions and packaging structure used throughout the entire supply chain have a major impact on the quality of the delivered fruit. While storage and transport phases are already operated at recognised optimal conditions, the complex structure of the packaging system together with the large number of design parameters involved have prevented a good understanding of the effect of the packaging structure on the in-package environment and quality outcomes. This proposed PhD project, aims to initially revisiting the design of the kiwifruit modular bulk pack, and subsequently investigate impacts of pack design on the environment (temperature, humidity etc.) that the fruit experience within the pack through mathematical modelling techniques. The outcomes from this work will be a model that will aid assessment of kiwifruit box designs on the internal conditions established within that box and subsequently the delivered fruit outcomes. Suitable candidates for this project will have a strong interest and background in mathematical modelling of transfer processes and are likely to come from process engineering backgrounds. Candidates interested in this project are requested to write a 1 page essay on “Modelling transfer processes in packaging systems”.

    Applications should include an introductory letter (stating the project preference), a formal curriculum vitae and a 1 page essay (topic dependant on project preference).

    Stipend: NZ$26,500 (tax free) + university fees ($7500) for 3 years + a one off $5000 travel assistance package (for required travel to study in Belgium).

    Project Supervisors: Dr Andrew East; Dr Richard Love; Assoc. Prof John Bronlund (all Massey University); Dr Maria Ferrua (Riddet Centre) and Dr Pieter Verboven (KULeuven).

    Location: Centre for Postharvest and Refrigeration Research, Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Leuven, Belgium (for 6-9 months).

    Start date: Prior to end of 2011
    Applications due by: April 28th 2011
    All applications should be sent to Dr Andrew East. Email. a.r.east@massey.ac.nz

    Chào bạn,
    Mình đang ở Christchurch đây. Giá nhà thuê ở đây dao động từ 120-200/tuần tùy bạn muốn ở chỗ nào. Bạn có thể vào trang trademe.co.nz để hình dung dễ hơn. Giá cả thì cũng tùy vào cách bạn sinh hoạt thế nào. Nếu tự nấu nướng thì tốn khoảng 250-400/tháng.
