PhD, MSc, Honours and Summer Students

Study opportunities in cancer, asthma, allergy, arthritis, MS and infectious disease

The Malaghan Institute is New Zealand's premier vaccine and immunology research centre.  Our scientists are focused on the development of more effective immunological based therapies for the treatment of diseases such as cancer, asthma, food allergy, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and human hookworm.  There are many opportunities for postgraduate study within each of these research programmes, including PhD, Masters and Honours.  Each year the Malaghan Institute also hosts summer interns who have an interest in science and are of the calibre to take on and benefit from an assigned research project at the Institute.

The Malaghan Institute's Research Group Leaders are responsible for overseeing the Institute's research programmes, each bringing with them a wealth of experience in mentoring the development of young scientists.

Working with close direction from the Malaghan Institute's Research Group Leaders and senior research staff, students are able to conduct meaningful work and learn what a career in research offers.

Postgraduate scholarships

Financial support for postgraduate study at the Malaghan Institute is dependent on the individual research project and the availability of grant funding. This information can be obtained from the Research Group Leader supervising the project.
