PhD Fellowships in Antibiotic Discovery

The deadline for the NCCR AntiResist Fellowship Call 2022 has passed. Applicants will be informed about the decision and further steps by the end of March.


The NCCR AntiResist PhD Fellowships are unique in that they provide successful applicants with the opportunity to pursue their PhD within the Swiss-wide, multidisciplinary environment of the NCCR AntiResist consortium. Collaboration between the three major research fields of the NCCR AntiResist (clinical research, engineering and microbiology) is strengthened through a rotation-based selection of their research group of choice. Fellows will be part of a vibrant community of PhD students with educational benefits ranging from cross-disciplinary research projects and tutoring to hands-on teaching in state-of-the art technology and joint summer schools.
