  PhD positions at the International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials

Funding Type

PhD Type

The International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials is a joint PhD programme between the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, Dresden, Germany, Technische Universität Dresden and the University of St Andrews, Scotland.
  Adaptation in Exploratory Processes
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof K N Laland, Prof G Ruxton
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.
  Bacterial chemical harpoons – how do TIE proteins function?
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr U Schwarz-Linek
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to colonise a host and cause infections, bacteria need to gain a foothold by adhering to tissues such as cell surfaces. In general this is achieved through specific interactions between proteins and multimeric protein assemblies (pili) presented on the bacterial surface, and host molecules.
  Biodiversity change in fish communities: integrating taxonomic, phylogenetic and functional diversity
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof A E Magurran
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research, much of it led by the University of St Andrews (1, 4, 8), is showing that the world’s ecosystems are being restructured at rates that exceed the predictions of the best ecological theory we have.
  Breaking the rule: blocking protein degradation by N-terminal tagging as a strategy to cure disease
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr CM Czekster
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and project details. Proteins in a cell can last less than a minute to several days. Not only does the cell need to control protein levels but it must also eliminate proteins that are misfolded or abnormal in any way.
  Combining molecular genetics and biochemistry to explore the biology of chromosomal DNA replication in the Archaea
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Archaea constitute the third domain of life on Earth, comprise an estimated 20% of the planet’s biomass and make a major impact on both biosphere and atmosphere.
  Coral niche construction
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Dornelas, Prof K N Laland
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reefs are one of the ecosystems with the highest concentration of biological diversity on the planet. In 1% of the sea they harbor over 25% of marine species.
  Evaluating the efficacy of combinations of ‘repurposed’ approved drugs with antibiotics as ‘resistance breakers’ to treat infections with multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli.
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr P Coote
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a global requirement to identify novel treatments to combat multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacteria. Incidence of infections caused by these pathogens is rising and effective treatment is problematic resulting in increased morbidity and mortality [1].
  Evolution of mimicry: Genetic, morphometric, and functional origins of leaf mimicry in singing insects
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mimicry is a remarkable Darwinian adaptation, and bush crickets whose wings resemble plant leaves are among the most spectacular examples of mimicry in the natural world.
  Evolutionary quantitative genetics in the wild: behaviour, growth and fitness in Soay sheep
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Morrissey
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contemporary natural selection frequently appears to favour the evolution of increased body size. However, corresponding evolutionary responses of body size, of magnitudes predicted by evolutionary quantitative genetic theory, are frequently not observed.
