  Scotland’s Deep-Water Blue Carbon Resources: Sources, Rates and Fates
Supervisor(s. ). Professor William (Bill Austin), University of St Andrews (Lead); Professor John Baxter, University of St Andrews; Dr John Howe, Scottish Association for Marine Science.
  Clearing protein aggregates from the extracellular space of the brain
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Varela
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Small aggregates of proteins such as amyloid-beta circulate the extracellular space of the brain (ECS) and are thought to be key players in the development of neurodegenerative diseases.
  Exploring the Relationship between Imitation and Dance
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof K N Laland, Dr L Gonzalez
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship co-supervised by Professors Kevin Laland (School of Biology, University of St Andrews) and Laura Gonzalez (Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) entitled “Exploring the Relationship between Imitation and Dance”.
  Linking SMA and ALS through post-translational modifications of cellular proteins
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman, Prof T Gillingwater, Prof G Miles
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
The Sleeman group is interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms that lead to symptoms in the inherited motor neurone disease, Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).
  Quantitative interactomics to identify cellular pathways affected in Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman, Prof S Parson
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
The Sleeman group is interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms that lead to symptoms in the inherited motor neurone disease, Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).
  Catalytic Enantioselective Radical Reactions
  Dr C P Johnston
Applications accepted all year round
Free radical-mediated C–C bond forming reactions are powerful and versatile tools in organic synthesis due to their mild reaction conditions and high functional group tolerance.
  Multifunctional Metal Organic Framework Catalysts for Organic Transformations
  Prof P A Wright, Dr M Clarke
Applications accepted all year round
Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) have great potential within heterogeneous catalysis for fine chemicals synthesis, which derives from their high and controllable porosity and their great chemical versatility.
  New directions in Cu-catalysed cross-coupling
  Dr AJB Watson
Applications accepted all year round
Fully funded PhD studentships, in collaboration with AstraZeneca, are available in the lab of Dr Allan Watson at the University of St Andrews.
  PhD in the Biosynthesis and Enzymology of Fluorine Containing Metabolites in Streptomyces Bacteria
  Prof D O'Hagan
Applications accepted all year round
Research in the O’Hagan group has had a focus on the biosynthesis of fluorine containing natural products and the identification of a fluorination enzyme, ‘the fluorinase’, from Streptomyces cattleya.[1] Fluorine is very rare in nature, and in those rare cases where an organism can form a C-F bond from fluoride ion, then the enzymology is unique and interesting.
  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).
