National doctoral programme on infections and antibiotics

Submitted by ohsadmin

The MIMS-affiliated National Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics

The National Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics was initiated in 2014 and is funded by the Swedish Research Council for three years with the possibility of a five-year extension. It connects Swedish research environments in Infection Biology and Infectious Diseases and covers basic as well as clinical research. The doctoral programme is coordinated by the Laboratory for Molecular Medicine Sweden (MIMS) at Umeå University.

The aim of the programme is to strengthen the national recruitment base and quality for promoting research on infectious diseases and other risks to health. A particularly important objective of the program is to strengthen domestic and international networking in the subject area.

The programme is open for PhD students and post docs active in research projects in the area of infection biology and antibiotics. Registered participants will gain access to a valuable national network with the opportunity to participate in courses and workshops suitable for their studies. Programme activities will constitute a scientific “smorgasbord” provided by leading researchers at different universities and no activities are mandatory. However, participants will be strongly encouraged to attend an annual network meeting featuring cutting-edge speakers and the opportunity to present/discuss their research projects and establish valuable collaborations and networks. Programme participants will also be able to apply for support for travel and accommodation costs for participating in programme activities at other universities.

At the web site www.mims-infectantibio.se there is additional information about the programme, how to register, organization and contact persons together with information on future courses, workshops etc. Also, see the attached flyer (PDF).

PhD students and postdocs are very welcome to register to the programme!
