Careers & Study

Training & Education

Our goal is to drive progress in tackling the global problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

For this, it will be critical to develop the pipeline of talent to undertake research and pursue scientific discovery in the field in the years to come.

Therefore, we aim to provide world-leading postgraduate degree and educational programmes that offer skills and training for early- and mid-career researchers to advance the science, develop the insights, and foster the interdisciplinary approaches required to address the wide-ranging challenges of AMR.

INEOS Oxbridge Doctoral Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance

The INEOS Oxbridge Doctoral Initiative is a programme that integrates the expertise and capabilities of two Universities that are globally recognised for excellence in health science research. Three yearly studentships are awarded in Oxford (DPhil) and three in Cambridge (PhD), but students are encouraged to train in both Universities.

At the heart of the initiative is an ambition to nurture a diverse cohort of outstanding young scientists who will become equipped to deal with the global challenges posed by the rapidly emerging threat from antimicrobial resistance. Find out more here.

Application Deadline: the application deadline for the positions starting in October 2022 has passed. A new application window will be announced when available.

Other opportunities:

We also accept doctoral-level students through a range of graduate training programmes from the University of Oxford, including:

Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP)

The DTP offers an innovative, interdisciplinary four-year graduate training programme, funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (UKRI-BBSRC). It aims to equip a new generation of researchers with the skills, insight and knowledge needed to tackle the most important challenges in bioscience research.
