Biosciences research has a huge impact on helping people live longer and healthier lives. With the World Economic Forum identifying healthcare as one of the top 10 Global Challenges for 2030, there is a growing demand for specialists in this field. This course provides you with an understanding of the molecular basis of biological systems and focuses on applying this knowledge to improve human health and disease, food biosecurity and sustainable biotechnologies.
The unique course structure is designed in consultation with clinical and industrial partners to give you the specialist knowledge and practical skills needed for a career in molecular biosciences. You’ll gain extensive research experience by carrying out two research projects, working in dedicated postgraduate labs and with researchers from the Department of Biology & Biochemistry and our new Milner Centre for Evolution.
The course also includes a ‘Broadening horizons’ unit, giving you the opportunity to further strengthen your employability by doing a project addressing the challenges of global environment sustainability. You’ll apply your skills related to either entrepreneurship, teaching, media and communication, or public engagement.
You’ll graduate with the specialist knowledge and employability skills for a career in further research, such as a PhD, or roles in academic, clinical, industrial or commercial sectors anywhere in the world.
Specialise in microbiology
Microbes present global challenges, such as a rise in antibiotic resistance, as well as opportunities, such as microbes in food biosecurity or human health.
You’ll be based primarily within the Infection and Immunity research group at Bath where you’ll work with researchers at the forefront of microbial research, strengthening your ability to work as a scientist. You’ll focus on the molecular principles underlying the biology of microorganisms, including their epidemiology, pathogenicity, virulence in the context of medicine, public health or agricultural biosecurity. You’ll also have the opportunity to use our specialist facilities, including computational methods to analyse large biological datasets to answer the ‘big’ questions in microbiology, from bacterial epidemiology to evolution.
This course is for you if you’ve graduated from any bioscience, medical, veterinary or related discipline and you’re interested in specialising in a career within the field of molecular microbiology.
