Current Postgraduate Scholarship opportunities
BIC offers an excellent training environment and state-of-the art equipment for graduate students interested in biomolecular interactions. We currently have two PhD scholarships available for the following projects.
Artificial leaf surface development as a surrogate for microbial colonization of plant leaves
Applications are invited for a fully funded 3-year PhD studentship with the Biomolecular Interaction Centre at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. The studentship is awarded for developing artificial leaf surfaces as a surrogate platform for the study of microbial colonization of plant leaves. The studentship includes a $25,000 per annum stipend, plus tuition fees.
See FindAPhD for more information and to apply, or contact Volker Nock (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mitja Remus-Emsermann (email@example.com).
Bacteriophage endolysins to control pathogenic microbes in agriculture and medicine
Applications are invited for a fully funded 3-year PhD studentship from motivated students with experience in microbiology and biochemistry to investigate the potential for phage-derived enzymes to be used as an intervention against bacterial pathogens of importance to food, water and medicine. The studentship includes a $21,000 per annum stipend, plus tuition fees.
See UC Scholaships for more information, or contact Renwick Dobson (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Craig Billington (email@example.com). Applications close 12 May 2017.
