PhD match-funded studentship

Small World Initiative soil grass

The Society is collaborating on a cross-disciplinary match-funded PhD studentship, as part of our work with Antibiotics Unearthed. The PhD student will be an integral part of the Citizen Science Project, refining how best to engage the public in the Initiative and developing methods to investigate potential antibacterial compound-producing micro-organisms that may be discovered.

A team from the University of East Anglia (UEA) have been chosen to host the Society's match-funded PhD studentship as part of Antibiotics Unearthed. Professor Laura Bowater, Professor Elena Nardi and Dr Gary Rowley will draw on their expertise in searching for new antibiotics in soil, public engagement in science and educational theory in this multi-disciplinary project. The PhD student taking part in our match-funded studentship is Ethan Drury. You can follow his progress on Twitter.
