Career opportunities

This course is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in biomedical research.

The majority of our students will go on to undertake PhD studies at The University of Manchester and elsewhere, or will continue their career in the industrial sector where the rapid recent expansion of genomic science and the ever-increasing demand for cell-based analysis and experimentation emphasises the requirement for suitably trained research graduates.

Intercalating medical students from Manchester and elsewhere will benefit from MSc Infection Biology if they are interested in careers addressing the many challenges of hospital and community acquired infectious disease, antibiotic resistance and novel antimicrobial strategy.
