The ParaMet initial training programme, a collaborative network funded by the
European Commission and coordinated by the University of Glasgow, invites applications for 12 PhD Studentships
The network aims to identify key areas in the metabolism of protozoan parasites causing malaria and sleeping sickness that are exploitable for discovery of urgently needed new drugs against these diseases. This will be achieved by multidisciplinary research projects supervised by experts from academia and pharmaceutical industry.
ParaMet will train highly talented young scientists in advanced technologies such as high content RNAi screening, transcriptomics, metabolomics, mathematical modelling and drug discovery through biochemical and structural approaches. Thus the programme offers a unique opportunity to outstanding applicants to engage in the drug discovery process in an academic and industrial setting.
Please familiarise yourself with the eligibility criteria published on the ParaMet website (www.paramet.eu) before uploading your application.
