PhD Opportunity with BeeVital & Leeds Beckett University

May 10, 2018

BeeVital have teamed up with Leeds Beckett University to offer an exciting PhD studentship opportunity studying propolis.

The project will be based primarily at the School of Clinical & Applied Sciences but with close collaboration with the R&D department of Nature's Laboratory (BeeVital). The project offers a fantastic opportunity to delve deeper into the biological activity of propolis and its relationship to chemical composition and geographical source.

The work will utilize well-established microbiology and genetics techniques alongside the potential for further biochemical analysis of propolis using a variety of cutting-edge technologies. The successful candidate will join the Centre for Biomedical Science Research and will have access to a newly refurbished and well-equipped research laboratory. The research project will be supervised by Dr. Maragarita Gomez-Escalada and Professor Gary Jones in close partnership with Hugo Fearnley from Nature’s Laboratory.


Deadline for applications is 10th June 2018. For more information and how to apply click here
