Our income derives from contract research and consulting, customised education programmes for 25,000 students around the world and from transferring intellectual property developed by staff and students at the University to the public and private sectors.

This role provides an opportunity to support development of the NZFVC research platform, in conjunction with the Co-Directors of the project.
