  A lab on a chip: using nano-plasmonics tongues for building miniaturized ecosystem sensors (SUPER DTP)
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Dr L Boehme
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainability and human wellbeing depend on resources from marine and freshwater systems, and to monitor how they are changing, a range of observations are needed.

  Prof G Miles, Dr S Sharples
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Neural Control of Movement Lab (http://ncm.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk), within the School of Psychology & Neuroscience at the University of St Andrews (Scotland, UK), currently has a PhD studentship available (beginning January, 2021) for an enthusiastic and highly motivated student with a background in neuroscience.
  Imaging the local accumulation and clearance of protein aggregates in the extracellular space of the brain in Alzheimer’s disease models.
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Varela, Prof F Gunn-Moore
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small aggregates of misfolded proteins are thought to be the main cause for cellular death in a wide variety of neurodegenerative diseases.
  Defining the role of de novo DNA methylation in the regulation of female fertility
  Dr J Tello
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovulation disorders are a leading cause of female infertility, present in ~25% of couples who have difficulty conceiving. A women’s fertility is dependent on effectively timing ovulation within a highly-regulated ovarian cycle.

The School of Geography and Sustainable Development (SGSD) is delighted to announce the 2020 PhD Studentship Competition. Two fully funded PhD scholarships are available to join the School's vibrant research community.
  Modelling encounters in surveys of unmarked animal populations
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof D Borchers, Dr R Glennie, Dr M Rowcliffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many wild animal populations are monitored by placing detectors (e.g. cameras or microphones) in a study area and recording encounters with individual animals.
  Design of Experiments
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof R Bailey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A topic in design of experiments, to be decided between the student and the supervisor. It could focus on methods for constructing particular types of design; methods of, and problems in, randomization; two-phase experiments; experiments in a particular area of application..
  Modelling local population dynamics for whale sharks in the Maldives
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
