Presence and drivers of geographic variation in delphinid vocal signals

Understanding the variation present in animal signals can provide insight into drivers behind it, such as the social structure, ecology, distribution and genetic diversity present in populations. Read more

Student-led PhD studentship (tuition and stipend) - Business School, Department of Finance

The Department of Finance at the University of St Andrews Business School is offering competitive PhD studentships to fund student-led projects, commencing September 2024. Read more

Probing the Electrical and Thermal performance of Sodium-ion Batteries

Sodium-ion (Na-ion) batteries have gained huge attention over the last two years as a viable alternative technology to Li-ion batteries for both EV and battery energy storage system (BESS) applications. Read more

Rocky shore biodiversity: Separating the effects of anthropogenic impacts from natural variation and climate change impacts.

The marine environment of Orkney has been subject to a variety of pressures over the years and there is a history of marine monitoring programmes investigating the potential impacts of different activities such as those associated with the oil terminal on Flotta, aquaculture, introduction of non-native species and climate change. Read more

Examining the emotional impact of knowledge translation

Over the past decades there has been a proliferation of specialist roles concerned with knowledge translation (the processes through which knowledges coalesce and are used to inform decision-making and action). Read more

Social Value and Organisation(s) in the Circular Economy

This PhD project seeks to bring an organisational perspective to scholarship of the circular economy (CE). The definition of CE is unsettled and debates continue whether the concept presents as an “empty signifier” to perpetuate the continuation of unsustainable production and consumption (Corvellec et al. Read more

Foundation Governance and Leadership: Investigating Governance Structures and Leadership Dynamics in Philanthropic Foundations

Philanthropy plays a prominent part in advancing societal change. from supporting healthcare and education, to tackling environmental challenges and humanitarian crises, or advocating for social justice, equality, and empowerment. Read more

Advanced Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy – method development and applications

Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy is a magnetic resonance technique that is exclusively and exquisitely sensitive to unpaired electrons that are found in radicals and paramagnetic metal complexes. Read more

Estimating spatial and temporal patterns in density of harbour porpoises in the North Sea using datasets from passive acoustic ocean observation networks with data flow to EU Digital Twin Ocean database

  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
A fundamental question in animal ecology is how and why the abundance of populations changes with space and time. Estimates of abundance are also critical for monitoring the conservation status of populations. Read more

Modelling ultra-low frequency (ULF) waves in Earth’s magnetosphere

The Solar and Magnetospheric Theory Group (SMTG) in the School and Mathematics and Statistics, University of St Andrews, is looking for applicants for a funded PhD project for a start in September/October 2024. Read more

Development of novel high performance organic electronic device architectures with enhanced electrical conductivity

Since the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2000 for the discovery and the development of conductive polymers, organic electronics has emerged as a promising technology for the development of a next generation of innovative and smart electro-optical functional devices. Read more

Use of a Scattered Light Integrated Collector (SLIC) for point of care testing to detect bacteria in synovial fluid from native and prosthetic joint infections

Infections caused by bacteria are becoming more difficult to treat on a global scale due to increasing antimicrobial resistance. Infections in native or prosthetic large joints, such as the hip and knee are largely dealt with via antibiotic therapy and adjunct surgery. Read more

Enantioselective Cobalt-Catalysed Skeletal Rearrangements

Research in the Johnston group broadly focuses on the development of new catalytic reactions for (i) the streamlined synthesis of known small molecules or (ii) unprecedented access to novel building blocks, with potential applications in drug discovery and agrochemistry. Read more
