Hello everyone in 'film land.

I apologise if you have received this message twice - I am a little confused
about the address nobody at net.bio.net <mailto:nobody at net.bio.net>

We have the opportunity to co-supervise a PhD student working in the area of
"Bacterial Attachment to Meat" with the Microbiology and Food Safety Group
of AgResearch Food Science.  I am posting this message to seek expressions
of interest from suitably qualified graduates.

The project can commence as soon as a suitable candidate is found.  The
project would ideally suit a microbiologist with biophysics interests, but
other applicants will also be considered.  The candidate will investigate
the relationships between surface charge, hydrophobicity and strength of
attachment, etc. with reduction of bacterial contamination the final

There is an established biofilm research team working at Massey University,
who will provide the academic supervision and the candidate will work
towards the award of a Massey University PhD.  The scholarship will provide
a stipend plus fees.  The work will be conducted at the MIRINZ buildings on
the AgResearch campus in Hamilton, working with another well established
team under the MIRINZ Fellow Dr. Graham Bell.
