Educational Opportunities

The IOI aims to provide world-leading postgraduate degree and educational programmes that offer skills and training for new researchers to advance the science, develop the insights, and foster the interdisciplinary approaches required to address the wide-ranging challenges of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Current opportunities:


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. This is funded by the INEOS Oxford Institute, with studentships fully funded for 3.5 years (fixed term).

Three studentships will be awarded in Oxford (DPhil) and three will be awarded in Cambridge (PhD), but students will be encouraged to train in both Universities. This provides the chance to experience the best of both academic environments and their established networks.

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 about the IOI's AMR Doctorate Initiative.

Application Deadline: 30 June 2022 at 11:59pm GMT.

Start Date: October 2022.


Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP)

We also accept doctoral-level students through the Oxford 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.

Future opportunities:

In the future, we expect to offer additional courses, including a one-year MSc in Antimicrobial Resistance as well as short courses and bespoke training workshops to equip professionals with the latest insights on the science and practice of combatting antimicrobial resistance.

Further details will be published and promoted when these opportunities become available.
