@[toc] ![enter image description here][1] ## NZAVS Graduate Lab The NZAVS graduate lab is jointly led by Chris Sibley and Danny Osborne at the University of Auckland. The NZAVS lab has an open and collaborative atmosphere. PhD candidates in our lab are jointly supervised, and our research covers a wide range of topics in social psychology. We work as a team, and encourage our graduate students to work together on collaborative projects for publication. There are huge and diverse number of research questions waiting to be answered using data from the NZAVS. For example, the NZAVS measures change in topics relating to intergroup relations, social values, religion, discrimination, psychological wellbeing, physical health, social identity, environmental attitudes and experiences of poverty. In terms of specific research topics in these areas, there is a high level of flexibility (all of the variables in the NZAVS are interesting to us, and there are a lot of possible options). What they all have in common is: - Statistical analysis of longitudinal and nationally representative data (we will teach you the stats, you bring the interest and enthusiasm). - Working as part of a larger team to help enter and manage part of the study as the hands on or applied component of your research project. - Generally, most research projects that work with the NZAVS data result in publishable research papers in academic journals. The NZAVS lab has a strong focus on the statistical modelling of longitudinal data. We provide all the specialist training you will need to work with longitudinal data, and hold workshops throughout the year that focus on a variety of different statistical analyses and methods (our philosophy here is that if you bring the enthusiasm and motivation, we can provide the rest). ## PhD Students ### Current PhD students Current PhD students working in the NZAVS graduate lab at the University of Auckland. - Zoe Bertenshaw - Eden Clarke - Deborah Hill Cone - Chloe Howard - Chantelle Kimberley - Kieren Lilly - Natalia Simionato ### Visiting PhD students The NZAVS graduate lab at the University of Auckland hosts graduate students visiting from other universities. This is a good way to foster international collaboration and training in diverse research methods. - Elianne Albath (University of Basel, hosted in 2023) ### NZAVS Auckland Alumni Previous graduate students who completed their PhD in the NZAVS lab at the University of Auckland, and where they are now. - Dr Joaquin Bahamondes, Universidad Católica del Norte - Dr Scott Claessens, University of Auckland - Dr Lara Greaves, Victoria University of Wellington - Dr Yanshu Huang, University of Queesland - Dr Sarah Kapeli, University of Auckland - Dr Carol Lee, Auckland Regional Public Health Service - Dr Christopher Lockhart, University of Canterbury - Dr Sam Manuela, University of Auckland - Dr Correna Matika - Dr Petar Milojev - Dr Ryan Perry, University of Melbourne - Dr Nicole Satherley, University of Auckland - Dr Nikhil Sengupta, University of Kent - Dr Samantha Stronge - Dr Elena Zubielevitch, University of Queensland ### Other New Zealand Universities The NZAVS is widely used for research across New Zealand, not just at the University of Auckland (see the [list of academics involved][2]). Below is a list of graduates who have used NZAVS data as part of their PhD thesis supervised by members of the NZAVS research group at other New Zealand universities. - Dr Chris Deak (Victoria University of Wellington) - Natasha Dore (University of Canterbury) - Aaron Hissey (Victoria University of Wellington) - JohnMark Kempthorn (Victoria University of Wellington) ## Contact Us Please feel free to contact either Chris or Danny if you are interested in pursuing a PhD in the NZAVS graduate lab at the University of Auckland. ### Chris Sibley ![enter image description here][3] School of Psychology University of Auckland [Google Scholar][4] ### Danny Osborne ![enter image description here][5] School of Psychology University of Auckland [Google Scholar][6] [1]: [2]: [3]: [4]: [5]: [6]:
