  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.
  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.
  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.
  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 Organo Fluorine Chemistry. New Motifs for Pharmaceuticals Discovery
  Prof D O'Hagan
Applications accepted all year round
Research in the O’Hagan Group has had a major focus on the synthesis of novel organofluorine motifs, and in particular placing fluorines stereoselectively around aliphatic ring systems.
  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.
  Acoustic spatial capture-recapture methods.
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof D Borchers
Applications accepted all year round
Many species, like gibbons, frogs, kiwi and other bird species, are difficult to see but easy to hear.
  Bayesian identifiability for log-linear models.
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Dr M Papathomas
Applications accepted all year round
Log-linear modelling is the standard approach for investigating the full joint dependence structure between categorical variables such as phenotypes and SNPs.
  Estimating numbers of molecular ‘species’ in a tissue
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof A Lynch, Dr H Worthington
Applications accepted all year round
An experiment to profile e.g. proteins or messenger RNAs will capture a sample of those molecules. There will be a random element to the sample but, depending on the technology used, there will be characteristics that influence the chances of seeing a particular molecule.
  Modelling population dynamics from detection survey data
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof L Thomas, Dr R Glennie
Applications accepted all year round
Ecologists collect data on wild animal populations by a variety of survey methods and infer from these how the population changes over time through recruitment, survival, and movement processes.
