  Adapting methods from statistical ecology and applying them to molecular data in cancer
  Prof A Lynch, Dr H Worthington
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a number of questions that arise from proteomic and RNA studies in cancer that have clear parallels in the world of ecology.
  Investigating modes of action of genetic risk variants through integrated analysis of multiple high-dimensional “omics” data.
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof A Lynch, Dr M Papathomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome-wide association studies have identified thousands of genomic loci that are associated with higher risk of a trait (often a disease such as breast cancer).
  Statistical models for digital ecological surveys
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof D Borchers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ecological surveys are the foundation on which evidence-based conservation of the planet’s biodiversity and wildlife resources is built.
  Spatial capture-recapture methods for snow leopards
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof D Borchers, Dr R Glennie, Dr K Sharma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We do not know how many snow leopards are left in the world. Snow leopard range country governments and scientists have launched an ambitious initiative to develop a robust assessment of the global snow leopard population.
  PhD positions at the International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials

Funding Type

PhD Type

The International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials is a joint PhD programme between the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, Dresden, Germany, Technische Universität Dresden and the University of St Andrews, Scotland.
  Unravelling the mechanism of glutamyl-tRNA reductase, a target for broad-spectrum antibiotic development
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr RG Da Silva
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is on the rise. This global threat is predicted to claim more lives than cancer by 2050 if not properly addressed.
  Evolutionary quantitative genetics in the wild: behaviour, growth and fitness in Soay sheep
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Morrissey
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contemporary natural selection frequently appears to favour the evolution of increased body size. However, corresponding evolutionary responses of body size, of magnitudes predicted by evolutionary quantitative genetic theory, are frequently not observed.
  Network Analysis of Rocky Shore Ecosystems
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr IM Matthews, Dr V A Smith
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rocky shore ecosystems are known to undergo "regime shift", a shift in stable states of community make-up, often from a more desirable, species-rich composition, to a low-diversity make-up from which they cannot recover.
  Biodiversity change in fish communities: integrating taxonomic, phylogenetic and functional diversity
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof A E Magurran
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research, much of it led by the University of St Andrews (1, 4, 8), is showing that the world’s ecosystems are being restructured at rates that exceed the predictions of the best ecological theory we have.
  Tool Crafting in New Caledonian Crows
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof C Rutz
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

SUMMARY. New Caledonian crows are renowned for their ability to manufacture complex foraging tools from plant materials.
