Learn more about our research career opportunities.

As a national and international research-led university, we have particular strengths in agriculture, agribiosciences, tourism, landscape architecture, environmental management and design, to name just a few. 

We are highly respected for our commerce, business and enterprise research as well as the work we carry out in the environmental and social research areas. According to the 2012 New Zealand Performance Based Research Fund (PBRF) report, we enjoyed the largest net percentage increase in funding and have one of the highest PBRF funding allocations per staff member.

Joining our team is a great career move, with significant research opportunities in all fields of study. Staff are well looked after and provided with a strong support system to achieve their research outputs.

Our staff enjoy a range of benefits, including attractive remuneration packages, and the use of a wide range of facilities and services.

We pride ourselves on our relationships with key research partners, but perhaps the most significant benefit of these collaborations is the opportunity our researchers get to work alongside businesses that are at the forefront of their fields.

By enabling tomorrow’s leaders to collaborate with today’s, we are ensuring that the knowledge and experience we are building now will guarantee a prosperous, successful and sustainable future for New Zealand.
