The Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM) is one of the largest and most highly regarded departments of medicine in Europe and noted for the wide range and excellence of its basic and clinical research (rated 5* in research assessment exercises).
The NDM is just as renowned for its work in basic sciences as more clinical or applied work. Much of the £130 million per annum grant income is spent on understanding the most basic principles of biology and disease pathogenesis.
As well as its research and clinical commitments in Oxford, the department has major overseas programmes in Thailand, Vietnam and Kenya. The NDM admits about 60 graduate (postgraduate) students each year for study and research towards a Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) degree, which is the University of Oxford's equivalent of a PhD.
One Medical Research Foundation Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Studentship is available for doctoral study at Oxford, starting in October 2018.
The studentship is fully funded for four years, with a stipend of £17,250 per year, UK/EU fees paid and a travel/consumables grant.
