  Applying super-resolution imaging techniques to elucidate the extracellular trafficking of protein aggregates in the brain and their direct role in early neurodegeneration
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Varela
Application Deadline: 15 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small aggregates of misfolded proteins are thought to be the main cause for synaptic loss and neuronal death in a variety of neurodegenerative diseases.
  Improved pretreatments and fractionation of soft and hardwoods to access feedstock chemicals
  Dr N.J. Westwood
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will appeal to candidates who are interested in combining skills in chemistry with a drive to develop the use of renewable resources.
  PhD in the Biosynthesis and Enzymology of Fluorine Containing Metabolites in Streptomyces Bacteria
  Prof D O'Hagan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in the O’Hagan group has had a focus on the biosynthesis of fluorine containing natural products and the identification of a fluorination enzyme, ‘the fluorinase’, from Streptomyces cattleya.[1] Fluorine is very rare in nature, and in those rare cases where an organism can form a C-F bond from fluoride ion, then the enzymology is unique and interesting.
  Promotion of School Readiness in Rural Tanzania: Investigating the Effectiveness of a Scalable Intervention
  Dr M Leighton
Application Deadline: 20 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications from nationals of DAC-list countries are invited for a fully-funded PhD scholarship to work with Dr Margaret Leighton (School of Economics and Finance) and colleagues at the University of St Andrews.
  Statistical Underpinning of Cancer Mutational Signature Analyses
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof A Lynch, Dr M Papathomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The existence of context-specific DNA mutational signatures as a response to carcinogens has been studied for at least three decades [e.g.
  Assessment of the predictive value of plasma proteins in oesophageal adenocarcinoma treatment
  Dr AJ Stewart
Application Deadline: 19 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a Tenovus Scotland PhD studentship to start in October 2019. The project will be supervised by Dr Alan Stewart, Dr Swati Arya and Dr Peter Caie in the School of Medicine.
  The quantum theory of biological systems: finding quantum design rules for bio-organic nano-devices
  Dr B W Lovett, Dr A Chin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoscale biological processes must necessarily be quantum mechanical in nature. Traditional approaches to modelling these quantum dynamics capture the behaviour of only a few “system” particles by assuming they are weakly coupled to a passive thermal environment.
