Gain industrially relevant skills by working in synthetic biology companies

Posted on: 29/01/2019

The Bristol BioDesign Institute’s call for Innovation Placements will give ECRs the experience of working in growing synthetic biology companies.

Early career researchers (ECRs) are being offered the opportunity to gain experience of the innovative and dynamic environment of a rapidly growing synthetic biology spinout company, by taking part in an Innovation Placement.

The Bristol BioDesign Institute (BBI) has been awarded funding by BBSRC to support six Innovation Placements which will help ECRs to obtain industrially relevant skills by working in synthetic biology companies. These awards will cover salary costs for approximately 3 months, travel, subsistence, and other associated costs, up to a value of £20,000.
