  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.
  Coordination compounds for quantum computation investigated by advanced electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy
  Dr B E Bode
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spins are quantum two-level systems with quantum coherence as one of their fundamental properties. This makes electron spins promising candidates for use quantum bits (qubit) in quantum technology applications such as quantum computing.
  Theory and Simulations of Space Weather in the Earth’s Magnetosphere
  Dr AN Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment surrounding a planet dominated by its magnetic field (called the magnetosphere) shields the planet from the solar wind.
  Particle Acceleration in Solar Flares
  Prof T Neukirch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major open question in the physics of solar flares lies in describing the mechanisms responsible for generating significant populations of non-thermal particles.
  Simulating the Sun: Can We Predict Solar Storms ?
  Prof DH Mackay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetic fields permeate and structure the atmosphere of the Sun. These magnetic fields can be seen to vary from the smallest to the largest scales presently observable.
  Coronal Heating by MHD Waves
  Prof I De Moortel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The question why the Sun’s outer atmosphere (corona) is so much hotter than the solar surface (photosphere) remains one of the most challenging open problems in Solar Physics.
  Next-generation Hybrid perovskites for Indoor photovoltaics
  Dr L Krishnan Jagadamma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world is increasingly using low-power, electronic devices in myriad ways, including sensors for the Internet of Things (IoT), where billions of objects are connected to the internet to make a smart network.
  Strong light-matter coupling with Rydberg polaritons
  Dr H Ohadi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Joint PhD studentship between Scotland and Australia. Dr Hamid Ohadi (University of St Andrews, UK) ([email protected]). A/Prof Thomas Volz (Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia).
  Magnetic flux emergence on the Sun.
  Dr V Archontis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A key open question in solar physics is how magnetic fields emerge from the solar interior to the surface of the Sun, to form sunspots and active regions.
  Millimetre wave radar signatures of drones
  Dr D A Robertson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The detection of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones, is a growing requirement both for the management of intentional drone activity and for the detection of unwanted drones which might cause a risk to security, safety or privacy.
  Sub-THz Radar sensing of the Environment for future Autonomous Marine platforms (STREAM)
  Dr D A Robertson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will complement the 3.5 year STREAM project, a £1.5M EPSRC funded collaboration between the University of St Andrews and the University of Birmingham.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Applied Photonics

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our CDT has been funded by EPSRC and Industry since 2001 and we are the longest running Centre for Doctoral Training in Photonics in the UK.
