Be part of the brilliant science going on in our labs – and enjoy a lifestyle you just won’t find anywhere else.
New Zealand is home to a number of internationally-renowned research institutions.
We compete globally in many fields including agricultural biotechnology, genomics, biopharmaceuticals, diagnostics, nutraceuticals and more.
There’s no shortage of world-leading science and research initiatives going on here. Amongst other advances, they’ve led to:
NZ universities are twice as successful as their US counterparts at getting research from the lab to market. Some even outperform entrepreneurial heavyweights like MIT and Stanford University.
Smart healing gels that will improve the healing process of patients recovering from sinus surgery.
A digital soil map that farmers and land managers can use to get a better understanding of the soils they're working with.
An innovative new social app that helps people make positive lifestyle changes.
'Healthbots' - robotic companions that provide cost effective care and entertainment for older people (an international collaboration with South Korea).
A new type of GPS tracking system that will revolutionize the conservation of native birds and endangered animals.
New 'green' power technologies.
New Zealand researchers are well integrated into global networks. In 2012, the OECD noted that 50% of their scientific articles and 20% of their PCT patent applications were produced with international collaboration.
