  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.
  Modelling rapid CO2 and climate change in the Southern Ocean
  Dr A Burke, Prof D Dritschel, Dr J Rae, Dr J Reinaud
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
The Southern Ocean plays a fundamental role in the regulation of Earth’s climate through its uptake of heat and carbon. Despite representing only 20% of the ocean surface area, it accounts for more than 50% of ocean carbon uptake and more than 75% of ocean heat uptake (Charrassin et al., 2008; Meredith and Hogg, 2006).
  Bayesian identifiability for log-linear models.
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Dr M Papathomas
Applications accepted all year round
Log-linear modelling is the standard approach for investigating the full joint dependence structure between categorical variables such as phenotypes and SNPs.
  Estimating numbers of molecular ‘species’ in a tissue
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof A Lynch, Dr H Worthington
Applications accepted all year round
An experiment to profile e.g. proteins or messenger RNAs will capture a sample of those molecules. There will be a random element to the sample but, depending on the technology used, there will be characteristics that influence the chances of seeing a particular molecule.
  Object classification from mobile and static sensor feeds
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Dr C Donovan
Applications accepted all year round
The demand for video processing is rapidly increasing, driven by greater numbers of sensors with greater resolution, new types of sensors, new collection methods and an ever wider range of applications.
  Modelling population dynamics from detection survey data
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof L Thomas, Dr R Glennie
Applications accepted all year round
Ecologists collect data on wild animal populations by a variety of survey methods and infer from these how the population changes over time through recruitment, survival, and movement processes.
  Stochastic modelling of populations of interacting cells with complex underlying phenotypes
  Dr G Minas, Dr T Lorenzi
Applications accepted all year round
Individual based models describe the stochastic evolution of interacting individuals-cells with different phenotypes. Reaction networks on the other hand describe the stochastic interactions between different phenotypes-molecular species within a single cell.
  Statistical design and inference for single cell gene expression data
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Dr G Minas, Prof A Lynch
Applications accepted all year round
The advances in biotechnology over the last few decades provide great opportunities for a better understanding of how our body works and how to keep it healthy and, through this, how diseases work and how to overcome them.
  Modelling the interface of metabolism, methylation and mitochondria in prostate cancer
  Prof A Lynch
Applications accepted all year round
The interface of metabolism, methylation and mitochondria is of key importance for understanding the aetiology, biology and prognosis of prostate cancer[1].
