  16 NERC PhD studentships for Earth and Environmental Sciences (IAPETUS)
22PhD studentships for Earth and Environmental Sciences (IAPETUS) Location. St Andrews Salary. £14,002 per annum Hours.
  IAPETUS DTP projects in the School of Geography and Sustainable Development
IAPETUS is the North East of England's and Scotland's multidisciplinary Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) for the environmental sciences, which is funded and accredited by NERC.
  *IAPETUS* Building for a changing world
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof S Healy
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. Nest building is a key reproductive behaviour in birds and yet we know almost nothing about the decision making underpinning it.
  *IAPETUS* Gene expression and sexual selection in sex role reversed flies
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Empid flies (commonly known as dance flies) are exceptional in displaying elaborate sexually selected morphologies and behaviours in females.
  *IAPETUS* Selection and genetics of life history in a wild mammal population
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Morrissey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. Understanding how individuals allocate reproductive effort through their lives is fundamental to understanding the process of evolutionary adaptation, and has major implications for understanding other key processes such as population regulation and the evolution of senescence [1,2].
  *IAPETUS* The role of phenotypic plasticity in rapid adaptation
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Population responses to dramatic environmental pressure can involve correspondingly dramatic adaptation characterised by rapid change.
  Exploiting cyclic dipeptides as improved anticancer therapeutics
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr CM Czekster, Prof D Harrison
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Background and project details. Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer deaths in both males and females. In the UK, of the total deaths caused by cancer 21% are caused by lung cancer alone.
  Exploring Deep Scattering Layers with the global Argo float network
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley, Dr L Boehme
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Deep Scattering Layers (DSLs) are ubiquitous features of the mesopelagic component (200 to 1,000m depth zone) of the global ocean.
  Expression and function of homeobox genes during regeneration in cephalochordates
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Cephalochordates ("amphioxus" or "lancelet") are an ideal model for studying developmental and regenerative processes (Bertrand and Escriva 2011; Somorjai 2017).
  Impacts of El Nino Costero on fishing and fisher communities in Peru
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley, Prof ND Laurie
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) has a major impact on fishery production in the Humboldt Current off Peru, so much so that El Nino years are readily apparent in downward dips in annual time series of global fish catch.
