  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.
  Modelling local population dynamics for whale sharks in the Maldives
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Dr H Worthington
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Data for this project will be provided by the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme. The broad aim is to further the understanding of the local population dynamics of this enigmatic species.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Coral niche construction
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Dornelas, Prof K N Laland
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reefs are one of the ecosystems with the highest concentration of biological diversity on the planet. In 1% of the sea they harbor over 25% of marine species.
  The seasonal ocean dynamics of the Amundsen Sea Embayment
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Dr L Boehme
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Thwaites and neighbouring glaciers in the Amundsen Sea Embayment (ASE) are rapidly losing mass in response to recent climate warming and related changes in ocean circulation.
