Postgraduate research opportunities

The Department of Anatomy is a large, diverse, and research-oriented Department within the Division of Health Sciences, at the University of Otago. The Department provides an environment that allows its students to undertake research into globally-relevant questions, under the supervision of internationally-recognised scientists, and in a diverse and vibrant postgraduate environment.

We are always interested in hearing from ambitious research students who are interested in undertaking PhD Study in the Department. Enthusiastic and suitably-qualified students are encouraged to contact potential supervisors directly.
