  Physics social identity, the gender gap and approaches to learning
  Dr K Mavor, Dr V Wild
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Gender differences in undergraduate university physics outcomes have received a great deal of recent attention, but the underlying mechanisms are still under debate.
  Esperanto 4.0: Millennials and the global Esperanto movement in historical and anthropological perspective
  Prof M Harris, Dr B Struck
Application Deadline: 25 May 2019
PhD Studentship in Social Anthropology & Modern History. The project “Esperanto 4.0. Millennials and the global Esperanto movement in historical and anthropological perspective” invites applications for one PhD studentship, for applicants to start at the University of St Andrews in September 2019.
  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
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.
  Comparing the social and health consequences of collective and solitary physical activity participation
  Dr G Ozakinci, Dr F Neville
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Background. Academic study has traditionally focused upon physical activity at an individual level and has thus neglected the potential role of collective participation for motivation and health outcomes.
  Improved pretreatments and fractionation of soft and hardwoods to access feedstock chemicals
  Dr N.J. Westwood
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019
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 Enantioselective Catalysis and mechanistic studies
  Dr A Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Our research is currently directed towards developing catalytic methods for the promotion of a range of synthetic transformations with varying applications in enantioselective catalysis.
  Climate Change, Air Pollution and Ethnic Inequalities in Health: Analysis and Projection Based on Longitudinal Register Data from Scotland
  Prof H Kulu
Application Deadline: 10 May 2019
Project Description. We invite applications from qualified and highly motivated students for a 3-year PhD studentship to study the effect of climate change on ethnic inequalities in health.
  Learning trajectories in neurodevelopmental disorders: nature and nurture
  Dr S Paracchini
Application Deadline: 15 May 2019
Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD scholarship to work with Dr Silvia Paracchini (School of Medicine) and Dr Margaret Leighton (School of Economics and Finance) at the University of St Andrews.
  Multifunctional Metal Organic Framework Catalysts for Organic Transformations
  Prof P A Wright, Dr M Clarke
Applications accepted all year round
Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) have great potential within heterogeneous catalysis for fine chemicals synthesis, which derives from their high and controllable porosity and their great chemical versatility.
  Giant Rydberg polaritons
  Dr H Ohadi
Applications accepted all year round
Exploiting the laws of quantum mechanics for the benefit of humanity in the so-called "second quantum revolution" is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century.
