We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for our prestigious Doctoral Antimicrobial Research Training (DART) studentships.
You will undertake your 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.
These fully-funded MRC studentships will focus on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) related research, benefitting from academic-industry iCASE collaboration. Spending a minimum of 3 months working with the project’s industrial partner, this is a great opportunity to take your research career to the next level in a cutting edge, collaborative research environment surrounded by experts in the field.
