  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.
  Multifunctional Metal Organic Framework Catalysts for Organic Transformations
  Prof P A Wright, Dr M Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  New directions in Cu-catalysed cross-coupling
  Dr AJB Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD studentships, in collaboration with AstraZeneca, are available in the lab of Dr Allan Watson at the University of St Andrews.
  PhD in Enantioselective Catalysis and mechanistic studies
  Dr A Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is currently directed towards developing catalytic methods for the promotion of a range of synthetic transformations with varying applications in enantioselective catalysis.
  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.
  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.
  Giant Rydberg polaritons
  Dr H Ohadi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Optomechanical Metasurfaces for Biophotonics Applications
  Dr A Di Falco
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Synthetic Optics group (www.st-andrews.ac.uk/physics/synthopt) in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of St Andrews has a large portfolio of research projects aimed at designing and exploiting light matter interactions at the nanoscale.
  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.
