The INEOS Oxbridge Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance is our flagship scholarship programme for postgraduate researchers. Selected candidates have the opportunity to undertake a 3.5-year DPhil or PhD project at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and across different disciplines.  

Seven projects are available, starting from October 2024. Applications are now open and will close on 5 January 2024. 

Projects are available from diverse disciplines and departments across the universities, ranging from clinical neurosciences to engineering and genetics, reflecting the need for an integrated approach to combat the rising tide of AMR. 

Our current scholars Christine and Rida, share advice for prospective students. 

This is a unique opportunity to not only advance your research but to also make a meaningful impact. I can't emphasize enough how grateful I am for this opportunity, and I encourage all prospective applicants to pursue it with enthusiasm, dedication, and a clear vision of how they can contribute to the program's objectives to advance AMR research.

If you’re interested in the topic AMR and working in an interdisciplinary team, even if you are not perfectly trained on certain research techniques, just give it a go and apply! It’s a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and to do cutting-edge research immersed in one of the best universities in the world.
