Norwich Research Park institutes (UEA, Earlham Institute, John Innes Centre, Quadram Institute Bioscience, Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals) offer MRC Doctoral Antimicrobial Research Training Studentships focused on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) related research benefiting from academic-industry iCASE collaboration. Studentships are funded for 3.5 years and provide a stipend to the student at standard UKRI rate for each year of study (subject to eligibility criteria), tuition fees and a research training support allowance to cover both academic lab expenses and travel and accommodation costs for conference attendance.
Students will undertake their research degree at the world-renowned Norwich Research Park, investigating topics such as translational medicine, rapid diagnosis of infectious disease and understanding resistance development in antibiotics. Spending a minimum of 3 months working with the project’s industrial partner, this is a great opportunity for students to take their research career to the next level in a cutting edge, collaborative research environment surrounded by experts in the field.
Projects have the potential to contribute to the prevention or improved treatment of infectious diseases, e.g. antibiotic discovery, novel anti-infectives, infectious diseases diagnostics, gut microbiota research, etc., and collaborations with a wide range of companies and organisations will be supported.
