As described here, one of the main ways of getting funding to studying for a DPhil with me is to apply for an NDM Prize Studentship. There is a competition held each year and the successful applicants have all their fees paid and get a generous £18,000 pa tax-free stipend. The deadline is 12 noon GMT Monday 8th January 2018.
This year I have put forward two projects, based roughly on the second and third areas of my research as described here. The titles are
- Antibiotic resistance in Tuberculosis: Predicting de novo the effect of individual genetic mutations.
- BashTheBug.net: can Citizen Scientists help improve the classification of bacterial growth in antibiotic susceptibility testing?
I am flexible and we can discuss tweaking these proposals to fit your interests. If you are interested in applying through a different programme, such as the MPLS Doctoral Training Centre, these proposals are a good starting point as well. Any questions please get in touch.
