This is a 3-month internship opportunity for Research Council-funded PhD students to work in one of a selected group of highly influential science policy organisations. Successful BBSRC applicants on four-year Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) studentships will use this as their Professional Internship for PhD Students (PIPS).
The EPSRC Engineering Theme in partnership with Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) are inviting proposals that explore research in the area of synthetic biology applications for protective materials.
The Medical Research Council (MRC), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) are excited to announce that they will shortly be launching a call for research proposals focusing on antibacterial resistance.
BBSRC, NERC and ESRC invite proposals for both research and research translation projects to the second call of the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Innovation Club. Approximately £5M of funding is available for this call, divided between research grants (£3.5M) and research translation grants (£1.5M).
