The Wellcome Trust Doctoral Training Centre in Antimicrobials and Antimicrobial Resistance is a partnership between the Wellcome Trust, University of Nottingham and the University of Birmingham.
It will develop multidisciplinary research scientists who understand the global emergence, spread and persistence of multi-antibiotic resistant bacteria, and discover new strategies to prevent and treat infections.
10 studentships per annum are available for a four-year MRes+PhD doctoral training programme. Students will be exposed to a range of AAMR-related research disciplines from the laboratory to the clinic, and will be based at the Centre for Biomolecular Sciences/School of Life Sciences at Nottingham and the Institute of Microbiology and Infection at Birmingham.
Through laboratory rotations, teaching programmes, placements, annual retreats and national/international conferences, students will gain a broad variety of benefits and opportunities including:
- multidisciplinary insights into molecular and chemical biology of bacterial pathogens, and the evolution, impact and spread of antibiotic resistance and the discovery and development of novel antibacterial agents
- exposure to relevant research activities, facilities and opportunities at two world-class research universities
- opportunities to network at national and international levels
- a tax-free stipend (expected to be in the region of £20,000 per annum) for Home/EU students
